The Planet empire is a bit of a Mt Lawley institution. Taking its home on the bustling Beaufort Street and Walcott Street intersection, Planet began as a video store for all your VHS needs.

Planet was established mid 1990 by a couple of frustrated fans of popular culture (slackers) who realized that if they wanted a library of film that contained everything available – especially arthouse, cult & classic titles – they would have to do it themselves.

The business was born on the main Mount Lawley intersection and grew exponentially from 75 square metres as the public came to appreciate Planet’s philosophy. In 1996 retail of film and music was added and 2006 saw the addition of a bookshop. The business now extends over 1000 square metres of floor space and retails film, music, books and associated products, as well as holding Australia’s most extensive library of film, documentaries, performance and television. In theory if you come to Planet you can watch the film, hear the soundtrack, play the game, buy the poster and read the script or buy the book it was based upon – soon with a cup of coffee in the cafe that will adjoin the bookshop. In the meantime, take the virtual tour, we hope you enjoy!

Planet Bookstore is splitting at the seams with books. With titles spanning all genres – from cult to music, design to travel, and then some – it’s Mt. Lawley’s best store for the literary folk in Perth.

Come down and relax on the comfy couches and flip through all of the books you’ve been meaning to read for ever. They’re all here.
