Glam street central
Where else do you find a glamourous queen masquerading as a straight-laced city worker? Even when the skies are grey, Oxford Street is always full of colour and good vibes.
From the edge of Sydney’s corporate bustle, Oxford Street’s vibrant social history winds you through the arteries of Sydney’s gay and lesbian community into the stylish quarters of Paddington.
Always Was Always Will Be
Balancing the old with the new is what Sydney does best, and this stunning art piece is no different. Paying homage to both the Gadigal land on which it stands and the vibrancy of the suburb, this artwork created by artist Reko Rennie is worth an Instagram pic (or five!)
Darlinghurst Courthouse (now National Art School)
This sprawling sandstone complex once kept in Sydney’s notorious, but now releases the creative juices in the country’s next generation of artists.
Home to 150 stalls every Saturday since 1973, pick up a trinket or two while you’re there. Australian fashion stalwarts Sass & Bide, Zimmermann, and Dinosaur Designs started out right here, so who knows – you might discover a stylish heirloom!
