Hippo Creek is a boutique library of rare picture books for children aged 5 and under. Available to book for festivals, events, parties and more, our family-friendly caravan space brings imagination, wonder and delight to little ones all over Australia’s East Coast.

We believe in the power of storytelling to transform experience, and seek out childhood reading material in service to this purpose. We aim for accessibility and cultural diversity, collecting books from around the world and striving (where possible) to acquire copies in multiple languages and formats.  

Our core librarians have a combined background in early childhood education and cultural materials conservation. Learn more about them here.
