Freelance writer from Brisbane exploring the city and surrounds to find the best coffee

Vinyl records have had a come back that few would have expected ten years ago. With new turntables and accessories being created and sold in most electronics stores, it's a big turnaround in the era of digital downloads but has proven to be more than a fad.
Rockaway Records is one of the only independent record stores in Queensland and one of their stores in Westfield Carindale is a great place to explore old and new vinyl albums, as well as many homewares and gaming accessories.
It is a phantasmagoria of pop culture at affordable prices. With everything from Funko models to second-hand records, to art and CDs; if you love music, movies or classic Hollywood, this is a great store to explore.
New and used albums for sale
I bought a friend a birthday present of a new Funko model for his birthday and was served by a chatty and very friendly staff member. I'd recommend Rockaway Records as both a smaller business to support and a great trip into amazing music.
