Hearns Hobbies - Melbourne Hobby shop in Australia

Here at Hearns Hobbies we are of the belief that a person’s hobby is one of the best escapes from the day to day grind. Giving the mind a chance to think of something different and letting your body as a whole relax and enjoy something entertaining. While also subtly keeping your skills sharpened, your spirits heightened, and your passion well and truly alive.

We do our absolute best to source and stock the trains, puzzles, model kits, cars, boats, airplanes and more, that you grew up with, and what is the newest and on-trend for those of you who are looking!


Hearns Hobbies has been operating since 1947, making us one of the few longest running hobby stores in all of Australia. And with age comes knowledge, knowing that the only way to give you the best customer service and advice is, if we are also fellow hobbyists just like yourself. Which is why at Hearns Hobbies one of our hiring mandates, are to ensure that all if not most of our staff are proficient and passionate in their hobby/department while also spanning over others to some degree as well.

We enjoy opening that next box of that RC we’ve been waiting for, or that next PLASTIC KIT of that plane we been after, or even that next re-stock of PAINTS and TOOLS that we have been eager to get our hands on. We enjoy these just as much as you do, and that passion translates to the best customer service we endeavour to supply to you.

Hearns Hobbies is at the forefront of digital content, with our updated website, which includes live inventory management, so you can be sure what you see online is definitely in stock. While we also produce online tutorials in the way of videos and sometimes our accompanying blog, with the recent inclusion of our Livestreams, where you too can have the chance to ask us in chat LIVE about your hobby or particular project!  To further help you there is also a handy SALES area where you can find yourself a great deal on discounted stock!

We are open to be as accessible as possible, while our online store is perfect for late night shoppers. We ship Australia wide, and we do our best to have your order out either the same day or the following day, supplying to Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Northern Territory, Western Australia, and Tasmania. We also ship to our sister nation of New Zealand.
