October 23, 2023 A new Chapter for Australia Reads begins

Australia Reads champions the joys and benefits of books and reading, and is on a mission to build a stronger reading culture in Australia.

Since 2012, we’ve held the annual Australian Reading Hour – a national day to celebrate reading.

Between 2012-2023, Australian Reading Hour has engaged over a million Australians in reading, featured over 300 annual events, attracted mainstream media coverage around reading, and made tens of thousands of books available to young people at affordable prices.
