We came here under the impression it would be flea market -esq and that we would find cool authentic Australian goods and that it would be interesting and we could get good food etcetera. Well I should not have listened to the internet. It's just a bunch of stalls filled with the same tourist crap like T shirts and little... More

Paddy's is a great place to shop for souvenirs, the prices are much lower than anywhere else, and the place is HUGE! You can find anything here and it is fun to browse all the stalls. We spent hours there!

Went to Paddys Market as part of the Sydney attractions. The items are cheap and nasty and I've seen better on Hong Kong markets. The many massage stall holders are extremely pushy and grab hold of you to,stop,you walking past the stall, trying to drag you into the stall. This may work in many other parts of the world but...

I didn't really enjoy these markets, there's mostly cheap junk available and not much more. I did get some cute iPhone covers but you can buy the same ones online for half the price. I could see some of these items being perfect for souvenirs however so if that's what you are looking for then definitely take a look.

This market only open from Wednesday to Sunday so plan ahead before you go. Most of the stores open after Thursday and I suggest to go this market first to see what they have and the price so you can compare it along with your trip in Sydney.

The gifts here are cheap, as compared to other places for the same items. Just need to spend a bit of time picking those that look of better quality. We travelled around Sydney and found that some items sold here were a lot more expensive in other places. Essential if first time in Sydney or need to buy back lots... More

Very busy and LARGE market area under a shopping mall in the basement near Chinatown. If you are staying near the Quay, take advantage of the FREE shuttle bus 555 from the Quay up and down George Street as it is quite a hike from the quay up to this area. Many vendors, and we noticed the prices are about... More
