An environmentally sustainable independent bookshop (and café) for booklovers committed to reforestation. The Chestnut Tree is honoured to operate on the land of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and the Bunurong of the Kulin Nation (a.k.a. West Footscray, a.k.a. #wefo in the inner west of Melbourne).

Buy any of our wide range of fiction or non-fiction books and plant a native tree in the bushfire-affected areas of Australia.

Buying books has never felt so good.
