Paddington was considered a 'slum' up until the 70's, and then the artists & writers moved in....and well......you know the rest. It's now one of the city most expensive areas to live in.

I started the walk on Hargrave St, and then slowly made my way through the 'new & improved' Five Ways . Then it was up Glenmore Rd........Oxford St, Jersey Rd......and finally, finished up by heading into Woollahra.

More info on Paddington can be found here

Wow!! Sydney is truly one of the most beautiful cities in the world! It looks so green, clean, European, and everything you'd want a city to look like! Definitely one of the greatest cities in the world and I can't wait to visit Australia! I love it!

Fantastic neighborhood. Love the narrow streets -- a big factor in walkability as well as density.

Ey! Some not-modern sights of Sydney! I like it, very different architecture. Those metallic balconies give some of a "New Orleans" look to the area, cool.

One funny thing is that whenever I see pics of Australia, I look at the streets and I ALWAYS think the cars are on the wrong way.
