Things To Do

Visitors will love browsing for quirky keepsakes, vintage and designer fashion, antique and second-hand treasures, retro goods, homewares, and artwork. Rosalie Village is a pocket of streets tucked behind Paddington, featuring a great range of international cuisines and a gourmet market. Find a map of Paddington here.
