The Twizel Bookshop is currently closed, both in store and online. We look forward to opening our doors again and sharing all the wonderful books we have in our space with you as soon as it is safe and fair to do so.


Thank you for your support - we will be back.

About us

We are an independent bookshop in the heart of the Mackenzie Country, South Canterbury, New Zealand.  We are readers and writers, illustrators and editors, artists and artisans, chronic enthusiasts and stargazers, highland wanderers and book lovers. 


We are a little shop, in a little town, close to the mountains and pretty far from everywhere - but books make our world a bigger, closer place. Books lend us someone else's brain for a moment. Books throw our gaze on places we've never been. If reading a book is an experience, then the value of that experience lies in the depth of feeling. We, in our little shop, want you to feel something. Feel angry. Feel offended. Feel disappointed. Feel surprised. Feel thrilled. Feel solidarity. Feel sadness. Feel wonder. Feel. Read.


Our little bookshop is curated to celebrate our landscape and our community and those whose paths cross here. We stock books we love and books we think you'll love. We look forward to seeing you soon.
