Various extensions of the Standard Model predict the existence of new types of quarks. We report on several search channels such as vector-like quarks decaying to a Higgs boson and a top quark or to a gauge boson and a b quark. Some of the search channels contain decays to top quarks, including the use of boosted top quark reconstruction techniques. These searches use the data sample recorded in 2012 at sqrt(s)=8 TeV centre-of-mass energy by the ATLAS experiment at the LHC.
