Symons Educational Supplies - About Us

About Us

SYMONS was the first bookshop on the Gold Coast, established in the 1920's. As of 2019, SYMONS has merged with Ezi Office National Gold Coast which is conveniently located in Southport's CBD along Warehouse Rd.

SYMONS has been supplying schools from Northern N.S.W. to Brisbane, Ipswich and Toowoomba for the past 37 years. Our representatives service kindergartens and schools for all early childhood, primary and secondary requirements. We supply library, text, and teacher reference books, stationery items and many more products associated with school needs.

SYMONS' Showroom has a large range of reference books suitable for home study. This includes homework aids to assist parents helping their children and educational charts, such as times tables, alphabet, biology, medicine and the Solar System. Parents and Guardians seeking resources to help their children at home are most welcome to call in and discuss their requirements with our experienced staff.

Teachers are well catered for, with a large range of support materials, including black line masters, reference books, and posters.

SYMONS' representatives have been actively involved in supporting both the Queensland Children’s Book Council, regional SLAQ and other groups (such as Bilby and Readers Cup) and believe in promoting the love of reading to the wider public. Our involvement in promoting author visits into local schools is another area we consider invaluable.
