About us

Lindbeck’s Butchery aims to source and supply the highest quality meat products available. We are one of last traditional butcher shops that still use whole carcasses, which we select, dry age, dissect and present for our customer’s meal requirements. We pride ourselves in knowing our products, and being able to offer the right advice to provide our customers with what will make meals of the highest quality.

Lindbeck’s Butchery has thrived by listening to what our customers want. From the days in the 1960’s where there were 22 Butcher shops in Queanbeyan; only three now remain. We have based our existence on providing our customers with the best we can source. We have great pride in the products we present and while we have moved with the times, our shop still adheres to the old fashion ideals of quality, service, and advice.

Lindbeck’s Butchery also has oven roaster hire available, for your special occasions. Our sausages are all made on the premises, with a range of over 50 different varieties. We use only natural sausage skins and have gluten free, and gluten and preservative free sausages always available. We assist families with their special dietary requirements and are sensitive to their needs regarding allergies.

We have condiments, sauces, and gourmet spices to assist people in the preparations of their meals. Lindbeck’s Butchery cures (pickles) meat in the old-fashioned method that has not changed in over 70 years. This technique produces the most flavoursome end result possible.

We have real butchers to cater for your needs. They are well educated in the retail meat industry and are ready to provide you with the quality products you deserve. Our shop on Cooma Street, near the Showground, has parking available out the front and free local home delivery available. A range of meat packs and bulk meat discounts are available. We also provide a diverse selection of raffle trays for clubs and other organisations. We involve ourselves heavily in the local community, and believe that if we look after our community, it will look after us. Lindbeck’s Butchery has been an integral part of Queanbeyan since 1928 and looks forward to serving our community long into the future.



Proud to offer the renowned Raiders Green Sausages while providing exceptional service to the Canberra Raiders and the community.

Our History

Lindbeck’s Butchery has been a part of the Queanbeyan community since 1928, when two brothers Jim and Tom Lindbeck both opened butcher shops on Monaro Street. They operated the two shops in conjunction with a piggery where the Quarry is now located: an abattoir on Yass Road, and grazing land on the Monaro Highway. Rose Cottage and Stonyhurst were incorporated in that property. Claude Lindbeck, the third brother ran the stock for the butcher shops, and his son Thomas William (Bill) purchased the shop in its current location on Cooma Street in 1964. Lindbeck’s Butchery is possibly the oldest operating business in Queanbeyan.


Bill’s son Peter worked in the shop with his father from 1978 and took over the shop upon Bill’s retirement in 1998. The shop has always maintained a commitment of quality meat, service, and helpful advice. Peter and his wife Ruth have raised a family of five children in Queanbeyan and have been involved in all aspects of community life. Peter is a fifth-generation butcher who understands his product and looks forward to continuing the traditions of his forebears.


"These guys do the best of everything. If you've messed up the rest of the recipe- the quality of the meat saves it. They always have interesting flavour sausages, helpful cooking tips and friendly service. Would recommend them over "supermarket meat" every day of the week."
