Discover Civic’s quirky side in three stops

Posted on

If you’re craving something unique, Canberra City doesn’t disappoint. From vintage to vinyl, take a look at these edgy boutiques.


Landspeed Records has been a much-loved fixture in Garema Place for nearly three decades, and is a must-visit for music lovers. But its not just about vinyl (although the range is jaw-droppingly impressive). Head to the back to get your fashion fix from their fabulous mix of vintage and new clothing and accessories. Be sure to check out their house label, Things We Lost.


Starting its life as a small shop in the historic Sydney Building in 2004, Impact Comics is something of a Canberra institution—fans of all ages beating a path to its door for the latest comics, graphic novels, manga and more. You’ll also find a range of limited-edition collectibles and hard-to-find action figures, as well a massive range of imported tees.


Tucked away in Garema Place, head downstairs to find subterranean second-hand clothing heaven. Lose yourself in row upon row of pre-loved fashion, shoes, accessories, CDs and DVDs, crockery, board games and much, much more. Pop upstairs for a second store crammed with more bric-à-brac than you can poke a lava lamp at!
