About Capital Chemist Kambah

Capital Chemist Kambah is one of the original Capital Chemist stores opening in 1976.

Gary Cairns was the first managing partner from 1976 to 2002. Gary studied pharmacy in NZ then enthusiastically served the people of Kambah and the newly developing Tuggeranong Valley with good humour and plenty of rugby and fishing tips for 26 years.

Cathy Rice joined the Capital Chemist Kambah team in 1992 and became managing partner in 2002. Cathy grew up on a sheep and cattle property in North Western NSW and studied pharmacy at Sydney University. Cathy has been proud to assist the Kambah community for nearly 30 years with all their healthcare needs and has assisted many interns to become wonderful pharmacists.

Cathy is ably assisted by pharmacists Olivia Collenette, Heather McEwin, Gwynn McLeod and intern pharmacist Caitlin Smith.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Craig A.
I have been coming to this chemist for over ten years, during that time myself and family have had a number of health issues. We have received fantastic service from Cathy and her team. It has a real family feel. Looking forward to the next ten years.

I have never before been so impressed with a pharmacy as I am with the Kambah Pharmacy. Always pleasant and very helpful. I highly recommend them.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Dean L.
Cathy and her team at Capital Chemist Kambah are exceptional. The service they offer is outstanding and I always leave with a smile. They offer real old fashioned service and really care about you and your family. They also plan ahead to ensure you receive your medications when needed. Without doubt the best Chemist in the ACT (the whole of Australia!).
