Oxford Street Tips (4)

Opus: Opus

The best shop I walked into was Opus! It full of great home wares and quirky little things that you just don't find everywhere.
It has a lot of modern stuff that is really colourful and practical and there is another section that as still modern but a bit toned downed.
It really is worth the look as I doubt there are many stores like it.

What to pay It is on the expensive side but still not outrageous.

Oxford Street: Catering for all tastes

Oxford Street has numerous stores catering for all types of tastes. It includes stores for women's fashion, men's fashion, adult sex stores, boutique stores for bondage/sex clothing and women's lingerie, etc. Its main part stretches from Hyde Park to Paddington.

The part between Taylor Square and Hyde Park (Darlinghurst end) is best for the adult sex stores and boutique stores although there are fashion stores too. The Paddington end is best for fashion and lingerie as there are more stores. There are some fantastic fashion stores located with many good named brands.

In Paddington, there is also the Paddington Bazaar (markets) which is usually held every Saturday. You can buy anything there such as music CDs, DVDs, fashion, art, etc.

Even if you just walk along Oxford Street, it's very dynamic, colourful, multicultural and it caters for gays as well.

If you need a break from your shopping, the street has oodles of cafes/restaurants/pubs to relax and watch the World go by. My favourite part of Oxford Street for coffee/food is the Paddington end. There are many pubs/bars as well for a drink or some food.

What to buy You can buy almost any fashion and strange item on Oxford Street.

Oxford Street: ...labels and lattes.....! markets and mardi gras.

Looking for Collette Dinnigan Clothing? Marcs? Morrissey? Bracewell? Saba? Rebecca Davies?

All this on Oxford Street in Paddington or browse through boutiques in Victorian Terrace houses hidden away in the tiny side streets off Oxford street.....

Located just up from Oxford Street is Queen Street, Woollahra. This street is famous for its array of antique shops, featuring everything from furniture to jewellery.

Paddington is a fashionable suburb renowned for its Federation-style terraced housing. Bustling Oxford Street contrasts with the leafy calm of the rest of the suburb where you'll discover houses with "iron lace" - Paddington's trademark architectural feature.

Paddington has many art galleries and Australian designer boutiques to explore. Enjoy milling with the locals around Fiveways, the centre of Paddington village.

On Saturdays, the popular Paddington Market is great for Australian souvenirs.

There are over 200 stalls with original hand-made jewellery, crafts, second hand clothes and some highly individual fashions.

Paddington has more than its share of cafes and restaurants and its pubs pride themselves on offering the latest in contemporary dining.

What to buy Oxford street is home to Australias most famous designers - pick up something unique and Australian in Paddington :D or just browse and stop off for a Latte or a Brunch in one of the many cafes along this strip...

What to pay $0.50 - $50000+

Oxford Street, Darlinghurst to Paddington: Young, contemporary designers

Books, food & drink, home furnishing, mens clothese, womens clothes, gifts, jewellery, music, flowers & shoes. All to be found on Oxford Street!

Although, I best recommend Oxford Street for the young in search of some cool clothing. There are some seriously good (known & unknown) designer clothes. Zimmermann, Marcs, Saba, Billion Dollar Babes, Filthy Lucre (a new store, with HOT labels), Diesel.. and so many more. GREAT shoes for girls to be found, wow wow wow.

Happy Shopping!!

Important Note: Weekends can be awfully crowded along Oxford Street. If you can do this mid-week it will be much less stress-free, but not such good people-watching. Depends on your priority!

What to pay Depends what continent you are coming from, depends on if you think items are cheap or not. A pair of jeans, expect to pay between AUD120-AUD400 (AUD200 is normal) for a pair of girls heels expect to pay AUD140
