About Us

Welcome to The Sitting Wombat


The Sitting Wombat is a locally owned independent book shop located in the picturesque beachside town of  Forster Tuncurry on the Mid North Coast of NSW.


Books are our passion and we have a great love for childrens books.  We stock a huge range suitable for babies through to young adults and beyond.  Our strong desire is to encourage all children of all ages to love books and discover the magical worlds that can be discovered through the love of reading.


We cater for the romantic, thriller, sci-fi fanatic etc that can be found in all of us and therefore stock a fantastic range of fiction new releases and best sellers as well as a great range of non-fiction books for the bio, gardening, cooking, surfing, sport fanatic lovers.


Our focus is on providing a quality local book store and becoming very much a part of the community through organised events such as author visits and book clubs.  We will be working together with our local schools and libraries.  


We also cater for the many holiday makers that visit this beautiful area by offering quality books, toys and things to keep children entertained while travelling or just to keep them amused on those rainy days.  


We specialise in helping you choose that difficult hard to find book for yourself or as a special gift for a loved one.  We understand that many people still value the face to face contact that we pride ourselves on and appreciate the connection with someone that only one on one service can provide.


Free gift wrapping is available and gift tags to purchase.  Postage can be arranged for a small fee for busy people or those unable to come into the store.  Orders may be taken over the phone or by email, gift wrapped and sent in the mail.


Gift Certificates available and Lay-Bys welcome.


We love our books and look forward to people coming into our store and telling us what they are reading.
