Koorong

Koorong is Australia’s leading Christian retailer with 14 stores Australia-wide and a thriving website.

Koorong began over 40 years ago at the Bootes family residence in Koorong Street, near Macquarie University in Sydney. As well as a street name, Koorong is also an Indigenous term for “watering hole” or “oasis”, which is a good metaphor for what we do.

We provide a wide range of Christian resources, at great prices, to help people in their walk with Jesus Christ. All proceeds support Bible Society Australia as it undertakes Bible translation, Bible distribution and Bible engagement both here in Australia and around the world.
