Paddington: But not like London

22 Jan

There are still a few areas of Sydney, which we have not yet fully explored,  so today we decided to tick another suburb off the list and head over to Paddington. This is an area, not too far from us, closer to the city and renowned for its federation style townhouses, the Victorian ironwork and small boutiques and cafes.




It also has a few secondhand bookshops, which is good because the price of books over here is astronomical – approximately $30 or more for a paperback, so about three times the price compared to England.

We’ve obviously become old now because we had a really nice afternoon just wandering about, stopping for a coffee and browsing a couple of furniture and bookshops!

We walked back via Rushcutters Bay, where a lot of sailing yachts are moored, and on through the smart area of Darling Point, a quick drink in the Double Bay yacht club and home on the ferry.
