Considered an eyesore until quite recently, Paddington is now one of Sydney’s most beautiful suburbs. Its backstreets are lined with rows of iron-lace-trimmed terraces decked with flowers, and its main thoroughfare, Oxford Street, is home to dozens of boutiques, galleries and cafes.

Always busy, it is at its most vibrant on Saturdays, when the Paddington Markets are in full swing. Paddington is easily accessed by bus – you can disembark on Oxford Street and walk around.
