Take to the streets for your style inspiration in Sydney. The Harbour City is dotted with streets dedicated to fashion and design where window shopping is half the fun. Discover local labels, stylish boutiques, handmade wares, custom furnishings and exquisite jewellery.
Oxford Street, running from Darlinghurst to Paddington, is a great place to start. Explore local designers at The Intersection and wander down tiny William Street for high-end boutiques tucked inside terrace houses, like Just William Chocolates and G&L Handmade Shoes.
In nearby Woollahra, Queen Street is home to a chic assortment of fashion, homewares, antiques and fine food. In Double Bay, the streets are lined with fashionable boutiques. Don’t miss jeweller Jan Logan, a favourite with celebrities like Naomi Watts and Jennifer Lopez.
Jump on the ferry from Circular Quay to visit the stylish home, art and design stores that line Military Road in Mosman. Continue north to the laid-back suburb of Avalon on the far Northern Beaches for beach-inspired homewares and cool Australian labels like One Teaspoon and Bassike.
For vintage wares and quirky fashions, head to Crown Street in Surry Hills to browse the racks at Vampt Vintage and Zoo Emporium. On King Street in Newtown you’ll find an eclectic range of designer boutiques, gift shops, vintage stores and book retailers.
