    Paddington Gallery Crawl

    Saturday or Sunday afternoons, following a late and languid breakfast, head for Paddington and a bit of culture with any number of commercial galleries found dispersed in the narrow yet beautiful streets of Paddington. With any number of exhibitions lasting 4-6 weeks, its a great way of catching up with contemporary Australian art.

    Personal favourites are the Sherman Galleries (16-20 Goodhope St), Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery (8 Soudan Lane), Australian Centre for Photography (257 Oxford St) but there are heaps more - wonder the streets until you stumble across one. And the streets themselves (if a little steep!) are fabulous, with the sheer number of stunning Victorian homes.

    Every Saturday, 10am -5pm (summer), 10am-4pm (winter). Held in church grounds, Paddington Market has started the career of many a fashionista. Everything you can imagine on sale here - clothes (one-offs and 'period'), jewelry, hats, music, funky lighting etc etc etc. Gets incredibly crowded. There's a couple of cafes inside the grounds - good to hide from those crowds!

    Note there's a no photography policy. I found this out after I took it and a very large security guard very politely asked to me to refrain. Natch, 5 seconds later I then saw the sign saying 'No Photography'.

    Great outdoor weekend market featuring arts and crafts, farmers' goods, and interesting knick knacks.
