About us

FERNDALE TEXTBOOKS is a school textbook shop established in the year 1994.
Since its inception it has become a trusted textbook provider for many government schools, private schools and tutor centres across the country.
We pride ourselves in knowing that we not only provide brand new textbooks but also buy and sell second-hand textbooks.

A new feature in our business is that we provide e-books for the schools who are using it as a studying option.
