For Aussies in need of a new broomstick (because maybe their last one broke when it landed in the Whomping Willow) there will soon be a new place to find one, as well as indulge all of their wildest Harry Potter fantasies.

The largest Harry Potter store in the country will open in Melbourne on Friday, giving fans the chance to pick up merchandise and take happy snaps inspired by the series of books and movies.

Aficionados can visit the 500 square metre shop at Myer in the CBD and take a photo next to a trolley entering Platform 9 and 3/4, akin to the one permanently set up at Kings Cross Station in London.

Mythical toys, stationery, costumes, homewares and apparel will be on sale, including a selection of 20 wands specific to characters from the series.

People hoping to catch the Australian production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which is currently running at the Princess Theatre, will also be able to buy tickets on-site.

The cast of the show will mark the shop's opening by performing a song outside Myer at Bourke Street Mall on Friday.

Myer's chief customer officer Geoff Ikin says the concept store will save Harry Potter fans from needing to travel internationally to access some products and photo opportunities.

“(It) will create a unique experience that cannot be found anywhere else in Australia,” he said.

Until now there were only two smaller stores available to Harry Potter fans - ‘The Store of Requirement’ in Brisbane, which was the first store themed after the famous wizarding universe in Australia, before they opened a second shop also in Melbourne.

But if you can’t get to any of the physical stores, never fear, because there are plenty of amazing Harry Potter items available from various retailers online as well.
