In addition to the guides, Urban Walkabout publishes a comprehensive website urbanwalkabout.com and a new smart phone app to bring you the mobile version of the well known and much loved pocket sized guides featuring a directory of destinations you will love to find from fashion, design, art and objects to cafes, restaurants and bars.
