Darby’s Paints began as a small local paint store in Geelong in the early 1980s. Over the years it has expanded from humble beginnings into a large retail store in Moorabool St (opposite Kardinia Park), with additional stores servicing many of Victoria’s largest regional cities including Ballarat, Shepparton and Mildura. In 2019, the business was acquired by Attard Group. Whilst initially stocking house paints alongside our current array of products, Darby’s is now solely focused on Automotive Paint, Industrial Paint, Marine Paint and 2-Pack Kitchen Coatings.

Our sales representatives travel the countryside daily, each vehicle is set up to function as a mobile store, keeping our customers’ needs met. We also offer free* local delivery to customers in Geelong, Ballarat, Shepparton, and Mildura.
