The Time Machine LIVES

The Time Machine LIVES

The Time Machine is a place full of wondrous things. We sell vinyl records, comics/books/magazines/ZINES, posters/prints, toys, collectables, vintage clothing, antiques/nostalgia and heaps more.

Founded by Shane Sullivan, a man known throughout Nambour for his kindness and generosity. A giver to the community, and helpful to the less fortunate. He even used to save his cigarette butts for a homeless man. Shane has now sadly passed on, but The Time Machine will continue.

Daniel Stuth, Barton Worthington and Benjamin Paskins are now the new proud owners of The Time Machine. They will continue as is, but have BIG plans for the place, some including:

1. More new and second-hand records. Bigger variety of genres. If we don't have it instore, ask and we'll try to get it in. Also you can go visit Lee at Backbeat Records around the corner (Old Ambulance Station Art Centre - 80 Howard St)
2. We're selling our art instore, ask how you can too.
3. More vintage clothes.
4. Musical instruments and equipment...did you know one of the rooms downstairs used to be a recording studio?

Go on  in and say hello. There is a place where you can listen to music and
walk around and find a whole bunch of crazy, cool things.
