    The rusty old bicycle, cable-tied to a lamp post, at the lower end of George Street on the approach the markets from Circular Quay belies the fact that The Rocks Markets is Australia’s preeminent tourist market and a Sydney Institution. Thousands of people, mainly tourists, visit the outdoor markets every weekend and, while the market footprint...

    The Tourist House or Walkabout Souvenir shop in Queen street mall, is the only shop I have found that sells AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINAL DOLLS When you enter the shop, walk towards the back and to the stairs on the right hand side of the shop.

    Canberra Shopping

    While I hate shopping, I am a big fan of markets irrespective of the type or location. I guess it’s the sighs, sounds and often the smells and the general buzz that attracts me. Canberra has quite a few markets and while lacking the character, vitality, the smells and hustle and bustle of markets in many Asian and other countries, I enjoy visiting...

    Adelaide Shopping

    I'm not generally a great fan of shopping whilst on holiday, but the Adelaide Arcade is worth a visit for the architecture and history as well as the shops. It was built in 1885 and retains the historical feel. There is even a small museum about the history of the Arcade and its shops on the balcony level. The shops include fashion, accessories...

    The Queen Victoria Building is maybe the biggest of the elegant, old-fashioned shopping-arcades in the centre of Sydney. It was built in 1898 in the place of a local market and it was restored again in 1984 and it is nowadays not only the most beautiful shoppingcentre in Sydney, but also a place to eat inside some great cafes and restaurants and a...

    Without wishing to disrespect the good residents of South Canberra, if the average tourist finds himself or herself in the vicinity of Tuggeranong Homestead Market between the hours of 9am and 2pm (its opening hours) on the second Sunday of a month they are most likely lost, having been taken prisoner by Canberra’s mostly unnecessary profusion of...

  • Central Markets

    Adelaide Shopping

    The Adelaide Central Market first opened in 1869, though was called the City Market until 1965. In earlier days, besides selling produce, the market area doubled up as a venue for public meetings and outdoors entertainment, such as Wilson’s Circus troupe with its man-eating lions. I have seen nothing to suggest that they actually ate any...

    Oz is a typical souvenir shop we found in Fremantle. They have the usual tee shirts, hats, post cards, toys, etc. that you'd find in any souvenir shop. After perusing the merchandise I found a tee shirt I wanted and Liz found a hat for her Dad. The tee shirt was $20 AUD and the hat was $12.

    Adelaide Shopping

    Certainly not on the regular tourist circuit, this market is tucked away in the middle of no-where - through an industrial wasteland though only 30mins from Adelaide CBD. Its relative isolation means it is authentic, local and as such the place to go. A word of warning though – there are no stuffed kangaroos, cuddly koalas, gaudy boomerangs or...

Well, in the main, we can, but reading is not the major pastime it is in the cooler and more sedate climes of Europe. Australians are more at home on the beach or at a footie match than sitting by the fire or...
