A message from the proprietor:
With heavy heart I must inform you that the Pharmacy Council of NSW have banned any pharmaceutical compounding on our premises
and advised us that it would be better if we continued our alternative practice under the trade name of Newtons, rather than Newtons Pharmacy.
I don't want to lose our pharmacy licence and will comply with the ban.
This does not mean that we are closing down or that you will not be able to obtain your products anymore.
We will continue to look after our customers the best we can and if unable to supply your compound, we will find an alternative product or supplier.
For more information, please contact us by phone, mail, email or visit our store.
Thank you so much for the ongoing support for our staff, pharmacy brand and services.
J. Shelly, pharmacist, herbalist and proprietor

Newton's Pharmacy at 119 York Street in the city centre of Sydney, has been a dedicated supplier of medicinal herbs, homoeopathic remedies and biochemical compounds since 1885. Our extensive range of dry herbs, herbal extracts and homoeopathic medicines has supported practitioners and the public for generations.
More recently, we have developed as a compounding pharmacy preparing custom-made formulations to meet the individual needs of our customers and prescribers for specific pharmaceutical products. Newton's Pharmacy is now prepared for a new century of continuing service.
Our focus is on complete and quality service to customers worldwide. Our dedicated team of qualified practitioners are able to provide up to to date information about modern and alternative treatments and advice about the products required to meet customer’s needs on a personal level.
Mr. Edward Allen Newton established his original pharmacy in Pitt Street, opposite Sydney Town Hall in 1885. The Pharmacy was set up as a retail pharmacy with an entire level dedicated to the compounding and preparation of traditional herbal and homoeopathic remedies.
Mr Newton was a pharmacist and herbalist with an unique vision for the future of his establishment. He combined modern pharmacy science with homoeopathy and medicinal herbalism and established a tradition of balanced care that has now been serving the public for more than 120 years. His vision has helped take the Pharmacy to an international level as the trusted source for traditional medicines and is still cherished and practised today. Edward Allen Newton was followed into the pharmacy by his son Edward James Newton, and then by his grandsons Frederic Orrell and Edward Allen until sometime in the 1960's when, after three generations of Newtons, Newton's Pharmacy was sold to Tedd Herr.
Mr Tedd Herr was The Pharmacist who brought European traditions and Homoeopathy to the Pharmacy. He had a remarkable knowledge and ongoing interest in the advances of pharmacy, herbal medicine and homoeopathy, coupled with genuine compassion and desire to help people regain their health. He dedicated most of his time giving free consultations to all those in need of advice and is still remembered with gratitude and love by many customers of our pharmacy.
To keep the legacy and ensure professional service of the highest standards, our pharmacists are fully qualified and experienced in pharmaceutical compounding and all staff members are practitioners in different modalities of complementary medicine such as naturopathy, nutrition, iridology, homoeopathy, ayurveda, aromatherapy, flower essences and more.
Our practitioners provide professional consultations by appointment. The consultation fee for one hour consultation is $105.00 and for half an hour is $60.
