Upcoming Events


In conversation with David Williamson

FRIDAY 10th NOVEMBER – 6.00pm

NOOSA BOATHOUSE – right on the Noosa River

2 course dinner & welcoming drink

$100.00 per person


With sales of over 16,000 copies of Sweet Jimmy, Bryan Brown’s distinctive storytelling voice continues in this unflinching, gripping novel.

The body of a local teenage boy is found on the beach of a sleepy northern New South Wales town. David went for an evening swim and got into trouble . . . at least, that’s what it looks like.  Three weeks before, Leila, a young backpacker, didn’t turn up for her shift at the local cafe. Benny, the owner, isn’t worried. It happens—backpackers are always on the move. There’ll be another one.

One of the locals, Adrian, has been a help to Benny. He’s found him a nice little sideline. Not exactly legal. Is that all Adrian is arranging on the coast? He once was a cop but has he gone bad? And in the back-blocks outside town, a bikie gang is gearing up for a large consignment from South America.

Murder, drugs, liaisons and lies are stirring up this small coastal town. With Bryan Brown’s characteristic laconic storytelling—humorous, tough and suspenseful—the secrets of this seemingly idyllic town slowly come to the surface.

Phil Jarratt ``The Immortals of Australian Surfing``






Local author, journalist, filmmaker and surfing afficionado, Phil Jarratt is coming to celebrate the launch of THE IMMORTALS OF AUSTRALIAN SURFING.  This book, somewhere around his 40th, is a collection of stories and photographs from twelve of our greatest surfers.  It was very difficult for Phil to select just twelve from the multitude of fantastic surfers who have surfed Australian and international waves for fifty years or more.  Many criteria were considered, and Phil will certainly discuss this at our event.  Suffice to say that this is a collection of in-depth profiles with Phil’s characteristic fine storytelling, and accompanied by over 100 photographs.  This is a perfect gift for the surfer in your life!  Phil is always a fabulous guest, and we can guarantee a fun and entertaining evening on our famous footpath!

Keep your eye on our Facebook page for last minute events, and our regular footpath signings on weekends.
