Shopping in Melbourne

Jump to last reply

I've just returned from four great days in Melbourne. I caught up with my sisters who flew in from Canberra and Sydney (me from WA). I just wanted to tell interested people about a great tour I did with Hidden Secrets tour of Lanes and Arcades. It was a 3 hour tour which took in Melbourne's fantastic arcades and showcased a lot of Melbourne's independent designers. We stopped at shops like Body, Kinky Gerlinki, Shag, Alice Euphemia and lots of others. There was also a stop at Koko Black to get a hot chocolate (delish). The tour also gives you a little box of 52 cards listing the various shops which is really handy because you obviously can't visit them all at once. There was a real mix of stores - retro, vintage, modern (for all ages but mainly aimed at 20s/30s). Fiona, the tour guide, is a fashioner designer herself who is wanting to promote this aspect of Melbourne. There was also lots of interesting info about architect and history. I loved going to see the button-maker who has been hand-making buttons for over 20 years.

I have no connection with the company, just a very satified customer. The website is www.hiddensecretstours.com if you want to check it out.
