Outback Books Toowoomba









I’ve always been a lover of interesting shops but I hadn’t managed to visit one shop in Toowoomba though my husband kept insisting I make the effort. The shop is Rhonda’s Refits www.rhondasrefits.com on Bridge Street in Toowoomba.

This is not a ‘visit for ten minutes’ type of shop in fact I think you could become lost looking at the most amazing treasure trove of western boots, hats, jeans, artwork, bronze sculptures, jewellery and an enormous array gifts, plus as they say – so much more.

I was delighted to find that owner Jeff Close also sells books from the store, and hosts a well set up online store www.outbackbooks.info. He specialises in self/independent publishers. His love of the Outback is enthralling with titles including, women in the bush, wool and sheep, bushcraft books, bush verse, Australians at war, horses, railways, Qantas and air, to name a few.


On the Outback Books website you can find a collection of books, novels, DVD’s, postcards, maps and books of bush verse. Jeff states, “Self published books is a speciality and we continue to add more real aussie books to our lists as we find them. We accept PayPal, Direct Credit, cheque, money order or order by phone/fax on 07 46 3 789 33 Feel free to contact us at info@outbackbooks.info and if you’re the author of an authentic bush book, please feel free to contact them about selling in Toowoomba and on this website. If you can get into Rhonda’s Refits, Cnr Bridge & Hume Streets in Toowoomba, Queensland you can save yourself postage/freight. You may like to phone /email ahead to have the books set aside.”

I’m thrilled to announce that now Rhonda’s Refits and Outback books is the place to go in Toowoomba if you wish to buy Carmel Rowley www.carmelrowley.com.au books.
