Braidwood Pharmacy is one of the oldest pharmacies in
Australia still existing in the original premises. It is unclear when the
pharmacy started to operate but we are in possession of a dispensing book
dating back to 1886 and several artefacts dating back to the early 20th
century. So we believe the pharmacy has been in operation for at least 130
years. The pharmacy has had many owners over the years; some for many years and
some for short periods.
On entering the pharmacy it is worth noting the old leadlight
doors with the modern touch of being automatically opening. Inside the front of
shop has an old pressed metal ceiling. We also greatly value our old large
Today the aim for the pharmacy is to be able to provide our
rural community with good professional and comprehensive pharmacy services
working collaboratively with other health services in the area.
Current owners are Julie Ballard and Bente Hart. Julie
brought the pharmacy in 2011 together with Andrew Topp. Andrew sold his share
on to Bente in 2015. Julie and Bente now run the business together.
