A local business you can trust

About Us

Bangalow Newsagency, a.k.a. Bookworms & Papermites, is a distinctive Newsagency. Visitors come in and say to us “Oh, this Newsagency is different – it’s very cool!”.  Our point of difference is the stock we have chosen to major in and our warm decor.  We are surrounded by high end gift and clothing shops in our quaint little heritage village but we specialise in items better suited to our local market. Stationery products for local business, art supplies for our thriving art community, a bookshop which is lauded as one of the best in the Shire.

Our Products

  • Stationery

    We are the supplier of choice for most of our local businesses. We carry a large range of stationary supplies and what we don’t stock we can order quickly. If you’re looking for a paperclip or a filing cabinet we can get it for you.

    Contact us for special pricing if you are the holder of an ABN.

  • Books

    An awesome little bookshop in the heart of Bangalow!

    Carolyn is an avid reader and a passionate lover of books and this shows in the selection of books that we carry. From children’s picture books, through our young adult section, cookbooks and coffee table books to today’s bestselling fiction and non-fiction. We definitely punch above our weight here.
