ABOUT KATOOMBA MUSIC

Based in the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney, Katoomba Music’s bricks and mortar business has been established for over a decade, delivering the lowest price on the best guitars, amps, keyboards, basses, effects, percussion and other music gear in Australia.

We also have a huge range of other stuff in our physical shop as well  so if you prefer to do things the old-fashioned way, come in and say g’day or give us a call on 02 4782 1121 with any questions.

Our Story • The History of Katoomba Music

Katoomba Music Recent History

On January 14, 2016 the previous store owners Dan Lander and partner Mischa , transferred the business to Ian Morrison and Michelle Baker. So grateful to Dan and Mischa for building this cool little shop . Since 1886 when The Carrington Hotel  opened its first music room there has been a need for musical instrument support in the community and the only place in town to visit is Katoomba Music.

“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”

IAN NEIL MORRISON • MUSIC STORE OWNER
