Mr Pickwick's Fine Old Books: 3 Floors of Antique Books
This place is the best if you like books. It's got tens of thousands. There are three floors of second hand books of every description. They are all categorised and if you need a particular book they will be able to point out where it is.
I found a book there the other day that I'd been looking for for years.
If you have a book you're not sure of the value of, they can help you to find out how much it's worth if you bring it in.
It's also got art, furniture and various other bric a brac, collectables and antiques.
Open seven days a week 9am to 6 pm, with late night trading on Friday and Saturday nights until 9 pm.
What to buy: Buy that book you couldn't find...
What to pay: For second hand books they are a little pricey (as opposed to an Op Shop) but if you're looking for a particular book or author, it's a great place to start. Generally the books are all affordable though. The only ones I can't afford are the really old ones (and I'm a poor student)!

Visitors Center: Hiking Guides
Located at Echo Point, the visitors center has a lot of information for the hikers. Since they do not charge for entry costs, the park recovers some money by selling booklets about each hike. It includes history, animals, flora and hiking paths information. They are really cheap (like $3 AUD per booklet) so buy one and:
1) Dont get lost
2) Support the Park
3) Have a lot of handy information!
What to pay: $3 AUD
