Just 3 kilometres from the city, Paddington is the boutique birthplace of some of Australia’s favourite fashion labels.

Known by locals as Paddo, the tree-lined streets and buildings of this sartorial wonderland were among the first to be deemed fit for historical conservation in Australia. Saunter through the leafy backstreets to find galleries, interior designers and antiques dealers.

The beloved and historic Oxford Street connects the area from Darlinghurst all the way up to Woollahra and Centennial Park. Wander north from Darlinghurst along Oxford Street, and you’ll find yourself in Paddington’s beating heart: Five Ways. Formed by the intersection of Glenmore Road, Goodhope, Heeley and Broughton streets, Five Ways is a hub of cafes, wine bars and shops clad in gorgeous Victorian-style terraces.
