Paddington is the area for serious shoppers. Paddington’s ‘Golden Mile’ along Oxford Street features some of Australia’s great designer stores including Wayne Cooper, Marcs and Morrisey.
Arthurs Pizza is an institution amongst the locals and if you are after a piece of Australian art, make sure you pop into Dinosaur Design where handicraft, resin homeware and jewelry are on offer.
It’s worth planning your visit to Paddington on a Saturday when the Paddington Markets take place.
Paddington is a short walk from the city center or bus 380 or 378 take you straight up Oxford Street into Paddington – just get off when the shops look interesting.
