Sydney has its fair share of touristy things to do and see, but what better way to truly feel like a local, than strolling around some of the city's best markets?
See what the city has in store with the help of your Sydney city accommodation, the Macleay Hotel.
The Rocks Markets
The Rocks is one of the most iconic landmarks in Sydney – home to a rich, convict history and the oldest pub in the city, Fortune of War. This cobbled-street suburb also happens to be just a half hour public transport journey from your Potts Point hotel, making visiting their infamous weekend markets incredibly easy.
Find more than 200 stalls selling everything from boutique jewellery to locally-made homewares and artisan food items, amongst much, much more!
Potts Point Markets
Even closer to home, you can spend a lazy Sunday afternoon strolling around the various stalls of the Potts Point Markets – just 350m away from The Macleay Hotel, by the El Alamein Fountain in Kings Cross.
Discover local delicacies and foreign flavours while perusing vintage, one-of-a-kind treasures from the many antique vendors. One particular stall drawing in crowds with their grilled-to-perfection toasties is Great Wheels Of Cheese who serve up stringy-cheese sandwiches to rumbling bellies at Potts Point Markets.
Spend your Saturday morning in Sydney rifling through pre-loved treasures at Glebe Markets. Completely eclectic and diverse, who knows what you might find at this well-known inner city space – just half an hour away from your Sydney city accommodation.
Whether you're on the hunt for a killer piece of vintage clothing to elevate your wardrobe or a retro ornament to fill a living space, there are plenty of opportunities to delve deep.
Take the time to relax on the vast lawn space and listen to the live music while enjoying a coffee and bite to eat.
Bondi Markets were established in 1993, and to this day, still manage to draw in crowds from far and wide. Held in the grounds of the Bondi Beach Public School, visitors can enjoy perusing the many stalls while enjoying unbeatable views of the nearby ocean.
There's a great mix of modern and retro at Bondi's Sunday Market – find anything from vintage furniture to up and coming local designer clothing. On Saturdays, fill your basket with local produce and food items at the farmer's market. Choose from fruit-laden jams, flavoured olive oils and gooey cheeses – perfect for a platter!
Sydney's never short of things to do. Discover markets and more while enjoying your stay at the Macleay Hotel.
