Named after its London namesake, the suburb of
Paddington showcases streets lined with restored
Victorian terrace houses with very distinctive
features, like high ceilings and cast-iron balconies.
It is home to some of Sydney’s most prestigious art
galleries, including the Wagner Art Gallery and the
Butler Good Gallery, as well as the tourist
attraction, Paddington Markets, located in the grounds
