Sydney – Paddy’s Market, Chinatown, Queen Victoria Building

A tour through some of Sydney’s bargain and high-end shopping precincts.

Starting the tour

Central Station.

Section 1:

From Central Station head north up George Street to reach Queen Victoria Building at number 445, known as QVB. Or, if you don’t want the big walk up George Street, catch a train to Town Hall Station instead which will start you off at the southern end of George Street.


A really amazing shopping complex that takes up an entire block of the city. Well worth a look and a good spot to pick up a few more cool pictures!

Section 2:

Next, go south down George Street and turn right at Goulburn St to reach Sydney’s Chinatown.


Chinatown is huge and constantly growing, you could easily spend a couple hours wandering around taking in the fascinating culture, you will forget that you are in Oz!

Section 3:

Take Dixon St (the main hub of Chinatown) to its southern end and turn left on to Hay Street, then immediately right on to Ultimo Road to go to Sydney’s Paddy’s Market.


It’s always best to leave a market like this until the end of the day because you know that you will be leaving with your hands full after buying every bargain that you see! If you are looking for souvenirs, boomerangs, Aboriginal art or even a cuddly toy koala then you have come to the right place! Paddy’s market really does have it all and at a very low prices. Yes, you will leave with foot ache after looking at every stool, but it is well worth the walk!
