URBAN WALKABOUT LAUNCHES SYDNEY’S MOST 

FASHION FORWARD SHOPPING TOURS


The newly launched Urban Walkabout Tours offer an ever-evolving ‘insider’s

knowledge’ for locals and tourists alike to discover Sydney’s most fashion and design

savvy shopping destinations. 


Founder of Urban Walkabout, Victoria Moxey has harnessed her eye for beautiful,

handmade design into chic tours for discerning shoppers to arguably the most

inspiring and innovative destinations. 


“Urban Walkabout’s new shopping tours take people passionate about fashion,

Sydney culture and design to some of the best creative precincts in this city. 


“The tours take the Urban Walkabout Sydney Fashion & Lifestyle Guides to the streets

for a more lively way to get to know the local design talent and learn more about

their work, to enhance your shopping experience,” said Moxey.


Launched by Moxey in 2006, Urban Walkabout Sydney Fashion & Lifestyle Guides are

a series of carefully designed convenient, free pocket guide maps of Sydney's

popular suburbs that are released twice a year.  


The fashion and design walking tours are conducted by Moxey and a selection of

hand-picked ‘style gurus’ and professional guides who are constantly updating their

portfolios of the best places to shop, dine and experience Sydney’s burgeoning

design culture.


Tour groups will be limited to small groups of between 4 and 12 people, giving the

shoppers a more intimate experience. The tours are designed to help fashionistas of

all ages discover Australia's cutting edge labels and exclusive pieces from unique

retailers. 


“You can expect to visit leading Australian and New Zealand designer’s boutiques

and premium retailers focused on innovative fashion, interiors and art and design. We

also see experience some of Sydney’s trendiest cafes, bars and galleries,” Moxey

explains.


The first Urban Walkabout Tours of Paddington begin this week. The tours cost

between $75 and $95 for the tours, of Paddington, Surry Hills and Double Bay so far --

each lasting two to three hours and include lunch/coffee. All participants receive an

Urban Walkabout Gift Bag, the complete series of the latest Urban Walkabout

Shopping Guides and VIP discounts.


With other tour destinations such as Bondi and Potts Point envisioned, Moxey is keen

to keep the content fresh and evolving by visiting different retailers and designers.
