About The Bush Chemist

Welcome to The Bush Chemist. We are an Australian family-owned and operated business headed up by husband and wife pharmacists Espie – otherwise known as The Bush Chemist – and Sylvia Watt.
We like to think of ourselves as pharmacy with a point of difference. Not just because of the wide range of products we sell, but because of our good old fashioned country-style approach to customer service. We want The Bush Chemist to be a place where we answer your questions, give you the information you desire to keep your family healthy and where you are treated as a person, not a consumer. That’s why our slogan is “Country care, anywhere”.
Espie as the face of The Bush Chemist is the embodiment of all these values. As a student, he received a Commonwealth scholarship to study pharmacy at the University of Sydney, where he also became the president of the National Association of Pharmaceutical Students Australia. Since then, Espie has owned and operated pharmacies in both Sydney and the rural NSW town of Tumbarumba, throughout the South West Slopes and Riverina.
We hope The Bush Chemist brings our distinctive point of difference – quality customer service, both in store and online and that important fast delivery – to customers across Australia.
