Must Do

Shopping in Surry Hills offers an array of choice from one-of-a-kind fashion to high-end interior design.


For vintage clothing, head to Crown St for Cream on Crown and Grandma Takes a Trip. Take home a souvenir of a different kind – claim a piece from an emerging Australian designer label like those found at Paris Texas or SARK Studio.


Over time, Surry Hills has become a hub for high quality design, furniture and homewares. Object: The Australian Centre for Design and Craft combines retail outlet, museum and workshop in one location.  Cloth Fabric on Buckingham St sells natural fabrics, art and homewares, with designs inspired by Australian landscapes while Chee, Soon & Fitzgerald are a Crown St institution for contemporary, collectible homewares and fabrics. Australian design in particular is showcased at Workshopped and Planet Furniture.


A vital part of the Surry Hills shopping landscape, the Surry Hills Markets have been operating on the first Saturday of every month for the last 30 years - rain, hail or shine. The markets boast more than 40 stalls selling all manner of recycled, second-hand and handmade clothing, gifts and craft. Take in the village atmosphere and enjoy a beautiful winter morning uncovering a treasure with a warm cup of coffee and a treat from one of the many cafes in Surry Hills.
