About Us

About Us

Owners, Lois Gaskin and Paul Watson opened Turn the Page on Phillip Island in August 2009.  It is our aim to provide both residents and visitors to the Island with the opportunity to share our love of books. Both Lois and Paul bring many years of experience to Phillip Island in the book trade and it is their ideal for Turn the Page to be a vital part of the local community. 

Our shop is a relaxing environment with plenty of room to browse or sit in comfortable chairs to relax and read.

Our knowledgeable staff are always ready to assist you.

We stock a wide range of quality books; but if you can’t find that particular book we can usually track it down and supply it either from our local or overseas suppliers. If you need help in selecting a book we can certainly help you with advice and suggestions. Our stock covers all the popular subjects and we have devoted particular emphasis to children’s books, classics, fiction and biography. We are well known for our specials tables where you can find a broad range of quality books at bargain prices.

Turn the Page provides a wide range of services to enhance your bookshop experience – we can provide gift vouchers of any value and these can be ordered by email, phone or in store. See other pages on our site for more information on the special services we provide to schools as well as details of our book groups and past and future events.

If you are interested in books please drop in, email or ring us. Lois, Paul and our wonderful staff are looking forward to providing the best in customer service to you.
