The Sydney CBD is surrounded by lively precincts where you can explore fashionable boutiques, bookshops, cafes, bars, restaurants and entertainment attractions.

Cafe, Petersham

To the east there is Paddington, Surry Hills and Darlinghurst. Each has their own style and personality. Paddington is sophisticated and stylish, Surry Hills, is more fun, laid back and Darlinghurst has the night life and bars.

Yoshi Jones Store, Newtown

Glebe, Newtown, Balmain and Leichhardt comprise the inner west with many second-hand shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, bookshops and design shops. Check out Glebe Point Road, King Street Newtown and Darling Street Balmain. And Norton Street Leichhardt has a wonderful collection of Italian restaurants and providores.

Balmain Markets

Markets appear in all areas especially on weekends, and provide an eclectic collection of goods, artisan products and produce along side vintage clothing and artworks.
