So I rang up my local swimming baths. I said ‘Is that the local swimming baths?’ He said ‘It depends where you’re calling from. (Tim Vine)
There’s a great little group of passionate locals who established the very useful Urban Walkabout back in 2006. They publish a series of free lifestyle guides featuring fashion, food and design destinations in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.
Their printed guides are a great way for locals and visitors alike to discover the best places to eat, drink, shop and more within a given area.
Urban Walkabout say it best: “Our printed guides include an illustrated map and business images and reviews that help direct readers to a carefully curated selection of boutiques, local artisans, galleries, designers, cafes, bars and restaurants in each location.”
And, best of all – you can pick them up for free.
This year, for the first time, Urban Walkabout have launched a new online pop up shop. It’s a curated collection of unique product from local producers in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth – and, I think they’ve got some very cool wares on offer.
Wanna’ see some of my favourites?
Do go and check out all the offerings at the Urban Walkabout Pop Up here. Unfortunately, shipping is only available within Australia BUT, if you’re planning a visit to Sydney, Melbourne or Perth there’s also the free Urban Walkabout App which brings you a mobile version of the well-known and loved pocket-sized Urban Walkabout guides, to allow you to curate the city your way.
