Hopefully, I’ve convinced you by now that choosing one pharmacy to get all your medications from is the best option for your health. But, why choose Calanna?

  • We focus on forward dispensing

    That means our pharmacists get out from behind the counter regularly to interact with patients. You can ask to speak to us and we’ll happily come out to chat with you and clear up any questions you might have. Check out what kind of questions you can ask your pharmacist here.

  • We are serious about our health knowledge

    Every single staff member receives in-house training on a different issue each month. Our pharmacists are constantly learning new things and our naturopaths are always engaged in improving evidence-based practice. We have a company wide focus on keeping up to date and finding the best outcomes for you.

  • We offer free medication packing services 

    Whether you’re taking 10 medications and struggling to remember all of them or you’re only taking 2 but want it to be easier – we can pack your medication into easy daily doses at no extra cost to you.

  • We offer a Medscheck service to all our customers

    Are you confused by your medications? Have you had a lot of changes lately? Ask one of our friendly pharmacists for a free Medscheck review to help you understand what you’re taking. We’ll even co-ordinate with your doctor if we find a problem.

  • We’re open late 

    Did you know we have 3 stores in Cairns open until 8pm on weekdays? And 3 stores in Townsville open 8pm or later? It’s so much easier to get what you need, when you need it

    Can’t make it out of the house? We can deliver your medications to you for free*.

    You can order and pay for your medications with ease from a simple app. Then just drop by and pick them up. A simple way to save time and make life easier.

  • We are compounding chemists

    Our Woree store has a dedicated compounding lab which can custom make medications to your doctor’s specifications

  • We’ve developed our own range of natural treatments – Marios Range

    From a muscle ache balm to a head lice prevention spray our Mario’s range has been a favourite in our stores for years.

  • We offer DNA testing

    Did you know your DNA affects the way your body processes medication? A simple DNA test can be done in store to identify which medications will and won’t work for you.

  • We have in-store naturopaths

    You can book an appointment with any one of many talented naturopaths or you can pop in and ask a question.

  • We can fit compression garments
