A Treasure Hunt at the Paddington Antique Centre

Thanks to shopping centres, we're all familiar with the concept of several stores under one roof. In theory, that's what you get at the Paddington Antique Centre, but you also end up with much, much more. On a site that was once a theatre back in the 1920s, the massive antique shop became Australia's biggest space of its kind in 1985. Get ready to scour the joint for vintage threads and finds while soaking in — what else? — plenty of old-world charm.

Once you've finished your treasure hunt, take a short stroll down to The Hope & Anchor, which just might be Paddington's cutest little pub. It's just over a year old, but looks like it has been around for much, much longer. Grab a breakfast burger or brioche French toast if you're heading by earlier in the day, or the homemade pie of the day, some roast chicken or a half-pound wagyu burger for lunch.
