About Us

Great Escape Books is within view of the Lighthouse at Shop 2/75 Great Ocean Rd, Aireys Inlet, Victoria.

Our vision is to create a destination in Aireys that our customers would love to come to, unwind and find the perfect book for themselves, family and friends.

With this in mind, we handpick all our titles to reflect the largest array of interests and reading tastes. Many of the books on this website have been personally reviewed by our staff.


So you can relax and spend quality time browsing, we have lovely leather couches to curl up in with your selection of books, and we serve a delicious range of T2 teas and Genovese coffee, hot chocolate. Cakes are available throughout the year.

We have an extensive range of puzzles, soft toys and Lego to keep the kids (and adults) happy, or add that extra special touch to your gift.
