Oxford Street Tours

2 Reviews
Home to some of Sydney’s best shopping, Oxford Street is an edgy thoroughfare that runs from Sydney’s CBD out east toward Bondi Junction. Lined with trendy shops and boutiques, it’s also become a central hub of Sydney’s late-night club scene, as well as the unofficial center of Sydney’s LGBT community. To learn about Oxford Street’s fascinating history, join in a guided walking tour that explores the quirky history and heritage of the infamous Sydney thoroughfare, or simply spend a few hours strolling the street and colorful streetside markets. Known as “Paddo” to Sydney locals, the suburb is home to The Intersection which teems with shops and boutiques, and comes alive on Saturday mornings with the weekly Paddington Market. Once per year, at the beginning of March, Oxford Street in Darlinghust is closed to traffic for the Oxford Street Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade. The festival celebrates 1978 when Sydney’s gay and lesbian community stood up for their rights and marched in the street that now is one of the most energetic and vibrant spots in town.

Insider's Tip: The stretch of Oxford Street near the CBD is often referred to as “The Golden Mile.”

Practical Info

Many of the bars, boutiques, and shops are clustered around Darlinghurst, to the east of Hyde Park, and around the Paddington Markets. While the area is great for shopping by day, it has gained a bit of a reputation as a troublesome spot by night.
