Centred on the busy thoroughfare of Oxford Street, the Paddington district offers a jumble of architectural styles, historic workers' houses, elegant colonial buildings, galleries, shops, museums and eateries. It is the shopping here that gets the most attention from Sydneysiders, with a wide range of fashion, book and music stores.

Paddington merges with the mixed suburb of Darlinghurst, where budget cafes, exclusive restaurants, boutique hotels and shops all share space in the red brick residential streets.

Landmark Attractions

Victoria Barracks
- The extensive Victoria Barracks are both a well preserved example of a historic military barracks and the greatest concentration of Georgian buildings in Sydney. The former gaol building houses a museum of Australian military history.

Sydney Jewish Museum
- Housed in the historic Maccabean Hall, the Sydney Jewish Museum places the Holocaust in its historical and contemporary context. Exhibitions explain the contribution of Jewish men and women who served in the First World War, and honour the memory of those who lost their lives.

Centennial Park
- The large open spaces of Centennial Park are enjoyed throughout the year, but come alive when sports and shows come to the Sydney Football Stadium, the Sydney Cricket Ground or Royal Agricultural Society Showground.
