How has this place survived? It is isle after isle of the same garbage, honestly you could walk one isle and see everything this market has to offer. If you are after Chinese made Australia souvenirs, mobile phone accessories, cheap bags, wigs, or cheap T-Shirts you may like this place. It is desperate need of adding some variety of goods... More

This is the place in Sydney to search for the usual tourist souvenirs stuffs. Prices are relatively cheaper here than elsewhere. Even cheaper than Melbourne's QV market. They also have a section selling fresh food stuffs like vegies, seafood or meat. By the way, come late towards 4 pm when they would start selling the food stuffs at a bargain!

I'm amazed by the amount of shops that I even find myself getting lost. Despite that fact, I think the shops are really awesome. Souvenirs are also reasonable and its definitely a place to visit in Sydney.

Can get quite crowded on the weekend, but a great place to hang for 1-2 hours. Here is also a place to get some reasonable priced souvenirs. There's also a food market selling fresh fruits and vegetables. Definitely a place to visit in Sydney, especially for couples and families.

Great shopping complex, needs some work on the entry of it but the shops are really good, there is 3 levels and a lower level that is a market place. Great day out, all undercover.

A good compilation of market. Lots of souvenirs stalls, shoes, bags and handicraft items however most of their prices are fixed...no competition here.... no bargains too. If thinking of buying t-shirts....go to Chinatown shops to buy... do some comparison as you can find its cheaper.

More affordable shopping for tourists in Australia. Multiple levels of clothing stores souvenirs and food. About a 25 minute beautiful walk from the Sydney harbour this place is great to walk around and find some cool stuff especially around Halloween!!!!!

Visit Paddy's Markets at the Haymarket on a recent Sydney trip. Actually went because our daughter was looking for a specific onesie... It's a great way to spend a few hours, and it has a typical market feel about it. The lower level has stall traders with a range of goods, then on the upper levels are regular commercial traders....
