The Omega list of Christian bookshops in Australia and New Zealand

If you have written a book for a Christian audience, it’s natural to seek out a Christian bookshop to help you sell it.

In the 1990s Australia had over 250 Christian bookshops, including five large chains with multiple locations and standalone stores dotted in both city and regional areas.

Since then, the religious face of Australia, as well as the global publishing landscape, have changed. So the number of stores is now much smaller. 

However, we have pooled the knowledge of our Omega members to collate the list below.


The Omega list of Australian and New Zealand Christian bookshops
