Gift Cards

On 24 November 2019,University Co-Operative Bookshop Limited (the Co-operative), trading as Curious Planet (formerly Australian Geographic), was placed into Voluntary Administration (VA). 

During this time, Gift Cards are unavailable to be purchased or used online. You are still able to use Gift Cards in any Curious Planet stores.
In the Administration, gift cards rank as an unsecured claim against the Co-operative. If you wish to use your gift card, you will be required to spend an equal or greater amount on top of the gift card value (i.e. a $50 gift is purchased with $25 gift card and $25 cash). 

Your ongoing support and patience during this process is appreciated.
