Shopping in Sydney

Paddington's Oxford Street is one long stretch of fashion and home wares selling up-and-coming street gear to designer-label evening wear. It is also home to the famous Saturday market. Department stores like David Jones are in the city centre. Pick up a practical - and typically Australian - Akubra hat from Strand Hatters in the historic Strand Arcade. Most shops open daily 10am-6pm (until 8pm Thursday), except Sunday which is generally 11am-5pm.
