Discover Sydney's finest shopping secrets on a shopping tour, at outdoor markets or by getting involved in special fashion-shopping events.

If the idea of finding your own way around the maze of boutique-lined shopping streets doesn't excite you, why not join a shopping tour? Fashion-savvy girls can shop til they drop at Australian designer flagship stores, intimate boutiques and independent stores packed with cool, one-off pieces. Discover where celebrities shop with Chic in the City, a stylist-led, chauffeur-driven tour of Sydney's best kept fashion secrets.

Sydney's outdoor markets are another great place to check out the latest fashion trends and up-and-coming names in the fashion industry. They're abuzz with vintage, retro and new fashion throughout the year and are perfect for buying Christmas presents or something memorable from your Sydney trip. Head to Bondi Beach, Balmain, Kirribilli, Glebe, Paddington or the Eveleigh Artisan Markets for starters.

Don't forget - sale time is fun time in Sydney so check out what sales are on while you're here and you may be able to snap up a great bargain.
