Shopping Secrets Melbourne: Melbourne’s favourite shopping guide is now in a handy app format.

Melbourne is frequently described as Australia’s shopping capital but don’t expect to discover the hidden secrets on the main streets. Like the bars, our favourite shops are located down laneways, in basements or hard-to-find upper levels. We’ve been publishing unique shopping guides since 1998. Local designers, exclusive imports, vintage, gourmet, men’s wear, women’s wear and homewares.

Don’t bother carrying bulky guidebooks, scouring the web or asking surly taxi drivers for suggestions. You can have insider information when and where you need it in a clear, accessible format.


Our regular shopping guide features

* 52 of the most interesting and unusual shops in the city
* High-end & affordable, quirky & cool, stylish & mature
* Full colour pictures revealing each shop
* Logos to help you find each shop at street level
* Engaging descriptions each shop
* Full contact details

These are all the features you get with Shopping Secrets Melbourne - the offline version. The app version cranks up the functionality. Check out what else you can do with the SHOP. app for your iPhone:
