If every person in the Bungendorearea spent just $10 per week in their local independent shops, instead of online or at the big supermarkets, it would be worth an extra $2.6 million a year going into the local economy. Which means more jobs, better facilities & a nicer place for us all to live. Makes you think doesn’t it?
Bungendore is a rural village near Canberra, Australia with a wealth of local independent cafes, pubs, shops and services. We have fortnightly farmers’ markets, a monthly arts and craft market, galleries, wineries and local food producers. Visit our award winning Woodworks Gallery and soak up the rural atmosphere.

What is Totally Locally?
Totally Locally is an award-winning social enterprise and shop local movement. We support independent retailers with a free branding and marketing campaign for their town. Teams of volunteers use the campaign to promote the value of local shopping, celebrate their high street, create community events, and ultimately lift their local economy. Totally Locally is more than a shop local campaign, it’s about working together to lift a whole town.
Since we put the Town Kit online in November 2012, Totally Locally has gone crazy. It’s in over 50 towns in the UK and many in Australia and New Zealand, with loads more telling us they are starting it in their town.
It’s about people power. Totally locally has inspired huge local markets (one which included beach huts placed though a town!) , co working, Pop Up shops, Sunday openings in towns where it never happened, award winning events, produce swaps and much more. It’s up to you. And when people do something great we ask that they share the knowledge and give it away to all the other towns. That way we all thrive.
