    Baby bunting and baby kingdom are big stores. We went to both and tried out a few different types of prams, decided which brand and model we wanted, then went to gumtree and specialist Facebook buy/sell/swap pages for a second hand one. We got exactly what we wanted, less than a year old so in perfect condition, and paid less than half of what it would have cost to buy new (still flipping expensive though!)

    I just bought a pram from redsbaby.com.au, it was affordable and arrived in a matter of days (I live in a regional town on the far north coast), they're based in Sydney so should be able to get to you sooner. If you want to see it first they do demonstrations in the capitals. Check out their site.

    I could only see 3 not so well known brands on redsbaby. com. au. Are they selling other brands?

    I went to mimee in crows Nest. They only have a few models on display. They seems to have a lot more model on their web. Just not sure the delivery if ordering online.

    Btw, saw some posts on da web about baby expo. Seems like lots of ppl buying pram during da expo.

    Good night ladies.

    Hi, they are in themselves a brand so only sell their own brand. They are an Australian owned, Sydney based company. I like the idea of supporting local businesses (it'd be even better if there were Australian made brands but alas our manufacturing industry is all but gone).
    What aren't you sure about with regards to delivery and online ordering? They delivered mine very promptly, ordered on Monday night, arrived on Friday morning (and I live regional/rural - it'd likely be quicker for metro delivery, especially within the same city).
    Looks as though they'll be at the 'One Fine Baby' fair on 13/14 Aug, maybe go check it out and see if you like it (as well as check out the rest of the show)?
    I really like mine, although that's only the ease with which I put it together and a small practice run of folding it down. I won't be able to put it into practice until November.
    Good luck with it all

    Baby Kingdom in Alexandria is massive! Biggest baby shop I've been to in Sydney and they have a huge pram section with lots of brands on show.

    I bought a redsbaby pram and I love it. Reasonably priced too.
    I second baby kingdom in Alexandria. I live down the road and I'm always there. And if you spend $1000 you get 10% off all future purchases.
