Adelaide, SA

A cosy little hidden treasure tucked away amongst the nightlife of Adelaide, The Bibliotheca Bar and Book Exchange is a European style small bar and library, serving drinks from across the globe and offering a book exchange.

Darwin, NT

Down a hard-to-find graffiti lined alleyway in Darwin city, Little Miss Korea is worth the hunt. Much like the mini 40, this Korean charcoal BBQ, dining and cocktail bar has an effortlessly cool vibe.

Gold Coast, QLD

Can you keep a secret? Broadbeach bar Veladora can. With no known address, the only clue we can share is to cross the bridge where Broadbeach’s monorail once lived, then look for the red palm tree. Thanks to the mini 40’s high performance flash, you won’t miss a moment with your friends once you’re inside the candle-lit speakeasy.

Lake St Clair, TAS

Located in the heart of Tasmania and on the deepest lake in the Southern Hemisphere, Pumphouse Point is a slice of luxury in the middle of nowhere. A photographer's dream and escape from reality, this is one of Australia’s best kept bucket list experiences.

Perth, WA

In a nod to the prohibition era, Sneaky Tony’s speakeasy is hidden behind an unmarked door in a Chinatown alleyway, only accessible via a knock on the door or password (revealed daily on Facebook and Instagram). With over 300 types of rum from all over the world, it’s easy to forget you’re in Northbridge.

Canberra, ACT

Turning everything we know about hotel architecture and design on its head, Canberra’s Ovolo Nishi brings together the work of more than 30 of Australia's top creatives, making the building an urban piece of art to be captured.

Sydney, NSW

Considered one of the worst best kept secrets in Sydney, you’ll find Wendy’s Secret Garden nestled amongst the Lavender Bay Parklands on Sydney’s Harbour. With no signage to direct you to the garden, pack your mini 40, a picnic and your sense of adventure.

Melbourne, VIC

Melbourne has no shortage of stow away bars, one of the most iconic being Jungle Boy, a bar with plenty of greenery and tiki vibes, hidden behind the freezer door in a inconspicuous sandwich shop!
