Popped into Paddy's market for a brief 20 minutes before closing time hoping to find some cheap souvenirs to bring back to friends and family back home, and I was successful! Spent less than $5 in total, which was a great deal. The store I went to was pretty adamant about pricing so haggling was out of the question, but... More

Unlike some markets we have been to this was relatively clean and well organised with wider walkways avoiding the need to rub each other unnecessarily. The assortment of 'stuff' being sold are also quite varied and very interesting, there is always something that can delight you. Clohes, art, food and the list just goes on, if you really want to...

As I was in Chinatown I decided to cross the street to go to see the markets, spent 45 minutes walking in the crowded lanes, to it is just a covered flea market with cheap stalls, left empty handed.

Lots of cheap souvenirs available but most of the goods are knockoffs. Upstairs are levels containing designer outlets and a variety of restaurants.

this market is the same style as ones in most China towns such as New York, San Francisco, Vancouver , Beijing. If you are looking for cheap souvenirs this is the place. I found the same item Woolworths was charging $9. For $3 at the market. Yes, everything are knock offs so buyer beware.

You can find all sorts of places selling cheap Aboriginal artwork. But come here to Paddy's, and go to the back and find the guy that has a table full of digeridoos, boomerangs, canvass paintings, and many more things! He has the best stuff there, and can even tell you where it all came from! I bought a lot of... More

every time I head to the City it's a must visit. Although the general market area is a lot more tourist driven these days, the fresh food section is great for locals. The food court on level 3 has been a frequent place to visit over the past 20 years. Noodle soups, omelettes fir breakfast at the Chinese shops are... More
