Welcome to Something Aussie, and to our fascinating collection of Australiana..
Melbourne is often called “the tourist capital of Australia”. Our wonderful city draws increasing numbers of discerning travelers every year – and many of these visitors have discovered that our store in North Melbourne is definitely the Australiana capital of this city.
At our spacious, airy and welcoming store, we have gathered a vast range of authentic Australian arts, crafts, gifts and souvenirs. Since 1992 we have committed ourselves to enhancing the Aussie experience of every visitor to our city, catering for every taste and every budget. Our dream has always been to offer, under one roof, a huge and varied range of Australiana. Today, our gift store and gallery is renowned amongst tourists and corporate clients alike for the friendliness of our staff, the quality of our goods, and the unique taste of Australia that we offer.
Visit Something Aussie and you will find tourists browsing, at their leisure, and delighting in gifts, toys, art, crafts and Aussie gourmet food-stuffs. One visitor might be buying local abalone, or sampling crunchy nougat or macadamia nuts, or savouring wine-infused chocolates. Another might be trying on an Akubra hat, or having a go at playing a didgeridoo, or marveling at the art and crafts of indigenous Australians. Other tourists will be exploring superb jewellery, quality skin-care products, beautiful glassware or gorgeous photographic studies of Australia’s awesome landscape. Of course, you will always find visitors cracking up over a playful, quirky souvenir, or cuddling one of our huge range of fluffy Aussie toys.
At Something Aussie we are passionate about Australia, and passionate about ensuring that our visitors find unique and authentic mementos of their visit to our wonderful country. We welcome tourists from every part of the world, and cater for individual tourists, groups tours and also corporate clients. We always happy to design unique packages for conferences, hotels, corporations and special events.
So much more than a gift store, Something Aussie’s whole mission is to make visitors feel welcome, and to ensure that their Australian experience is enhanced through finding that perfect gift, that unique souvenir, that treasured memento, that special “something Aussie”.
