Record Paradise

Browse through thousands of pre-loved, new issue and new release vinyls (and CDs and cassettes, too).

Starting life in St Kilda in 1955 before relocating to Brunswick in 2012, Record Paradise more or less does what it says on the tin. The Sydney Road store is a veritable haven for both casual listeners and audiophiles alike, and stocks a huge range of new and recycled vinyl, CDs and cassettes, as well as books and turntable equipment.

Music-wise, the specialty here is local independent releases, while the selection — which totals into the thousands — also includes a wide range of genres from artists and labels across the globe. This northside gem also plays host to events such as the occasional music trivia night, or the odd in-store gig showcasing local talent.
