New Sydney retail tour

Today Urban Walkabout Tours, Sydney’s retail touring experts, launched Sydney’s first regular fashion and style tour of the Sydney CBD; Sydney Unwrapped.

Breaking new ground in Sydney’s retail and touring industries, Sydney Unwrapped is a guided journey through Sydney city’s best fashion, style and surrounds. It guarantees all the “must-sees” of the city’s retail world, plus many hidden treats, VIP discounts and a luxury morning tea at the QVB Tearoom.

“Sydney’s shopping gems are spread through the city and often tucked away in arcades or below the streets – creating a huge challenge for shoppers attempting to navigate the city on their own and often with limited time,” said Urban Walkabout Tours co-founder Victoria Moxey. “Sydney Unwrapped eliminates those hassles. It literally unwraps the gems of Sydney’s city shopping while providing the insider tips, time freedom and luxury every style enthusiast deserves while exploring Sydney.”

The three-hour Sydney Unwrapped tour includes behind-the-scenes access and guided visits to over 20 retailers plus morning tea, a gift bag and VIP discounts to many of the stores visited on the walk. As Urban Walkabout Tours co-founder Rebecca Giglia likes to put it: “Aimlessly wandering the streets without direction, insider knowledge or VIP discounts is now a thing of the past!”

Sydney Unwrapped is the third regular style tour offered by Urban Walkabout Tours, following in the highly popular footsteps of the Fashion Secrets Tour (Paddington) and Fashion Forward Tour (Paddington/Darlinghurst).
