We were off to the markets, Paddington market to be exact. Every Saturday it's on between about 10 and 4. What we weren't quite prepared for was what we saw on the way.
Fondest memory: We alighted about 6 bus stops too early and thus had a 40 minute walk to get to the markets on Oxford Street.
As we strolled along we couldn't help but notice the women's fashion shops that make up about two thirds of the retailers along Oxford Street. Innovative displays showcased the modern stores and made for an interesting walk to say the least.
Interspersed with cafes, the odd boutique hotel and other premises, it's definitely a must-see if you are in Sydney and want to shop for clothes.
Go shopping in Pitt St Mall!! Excellent shoes/bags. The Star City Casino...VERY Vegas!! Huge & absolutely worthwhile!! Clubs, entertainment, food, everything is there in the casino.
Fondest memory: When I was in Sydney last, it was because my sister & I won a competition to attend the Australian Premiere of 'Mickey Blue Eyes' @ the new Fox Studios. SO COOL!! We got to meet Liz Hurley & Hugh Grant among other Aussie actors/industry people....but the thing beat it all was walking down the red carpet...and the papparrazzi actually asked us to stop for photos!! And we ended up in the social pages too, but we were the only non-famous people who ended up in the pages!! It was so incredibly cool!!
Favorite thing: Go shopping!! :) It's great to go shopping in Sydney because there are all sorts of shops and they are much bigger and better than the shops here... Sydney is a wonderful place to shop! ;)
