Qantas Travel Insider: Sydney’s Most Fashionable Shopping Precincts

Sydney is spoilt with an abundance of chic corners for when only the best retail therapy will do. Get your wallet ready…

The Intersection, Paddington

An antidote to the sterile shopping mall, The Intersection Paddington, is all about Australian high-end fashion, fresh air and footpath wandering. Sitting pretty on the corner of Glenmore Road and Oxford St, there’s a high chance you’ll spot a celeb browsing the racks. Brimming with Australian designers – from internationally recognised labels like Zimmermann and Bassike to local favourites Manning Cartell, Alice McCall, Viktoria + Woods, Dion Lee and Scanlan Theodore – it’s a destination that offers some of the country’s most polished threads. You’ll also find stores that spruik cool and casual streetwear such as athleisure emporium Mode Sportif and the eternally relaxed Ksubi.
