About Abicus

WE'RE OPEN!!!  Mon-Fri (10am-5pm), Sat-Sun (10am-4pm)

Abicus opened it’s doors back in 2000, on what was then a very sleepy Darby St Cooks Hill Newcastle.

With a crate of records, a rail of clothing and the vision to offer unique classics and hard-t-find vinyl titles that were not easily available locally, this inseparable mix of music and fashion translated from the very first day. Now, 20 years on, with a sister store Scout, a team of 10 staff and an immense amount of love and respect for the magical place that is Newcastle, we feel extremely lucky to be working with some of Australia’s most inspiring and prolific designers, musicians and artists.

Alongside the men’s & women’s apparel, footwear and specialised selection of vinyl, Abicus is also known for it’s deep offering of sunglasses and music books.

We consider the likes of Nick Cave, Patti Smith, Stevie Nicks, David Bowie, & Jimi Hendrix to be a vital and truly influential link between music & fashion. Their style and sound transcends time… leaving much to aspire to. At Abicus, we believe in-store experience is as important as the offering. We believe the right record, discovered at the right time, can steer the path of your journey, soundtrack your day, your week, your year, your life!. Trends come and go but quality is forever. Simple, essential and timeless styles can be found year round at both Abicus & Scout as-well as those one-off seasonal pieces.

Our team are just as happy talking about the new King Krule record or Rollas collection as they are about championing the ever many incredible local bars, bakeries, coffee shops, cafes, eat spots, galleries, retail, parks, beaches and opportunity Newcastle has to offer.
Abicus acknowledges the Awabakal nation as the Traditional Custodians of Mulubinba (Newcastle), we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
We recognise the ongoing connection and contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to the culture and life of this city and region.
