Today we’ve launched our 2018 Trends Report, in which we look back at some of the highlights from our first year in Australia, what Aussies have loved, and some of the trends that have taken the country by storm. It’s incredible to think that just one year ago we launched our Australian store. It has been a brilliant journey and we’re so grateful to the millions of customers who have welcomed us.
We are delighted to bring Australian customers deals on tens of thousands of products with our first ever Australian Black Friday and Cyber Monday Event on Amazon.com.au - with deals available across a wide selection of categories including Video Games, Fashion, Beauty, Electronics, Books, and more. Deals start at 00:01 on Friday 23rd November and will continue until 23:59 on Monday 26th November.
We are excited to announce the launch of the Amazon Fashion 2018 Local Brand Award, giving up and coming Aussie brands the opportunity to win a $75,000 marketing package to accelerate their growth and introduce them to more customers around the country.

While Australia’s humans have had almost a year to enjoy the wide range of products on offer at Amazon.com.au, the country’s furry, feathered and finned residents haven’t had their turn. Until now. Whether they spend their days swimming, scratching or snoozing, Australia’s animal companions will now be able to get all their pet needs met through the newly launched Amazon Pet Supplies.
If you want to make sure Dad’s face is plastered with a big ol’ grin this Father’s Day, the task may not be as Herculean as it first appears.

With four in ten Australians experiencing inadequate sleep, the secret to a good night’s sleep isn’t as far away as we might think, with simple changes and a set routine often being the answer to a good night’s sleep.
