Paddington is in the eastern suburbs of Sydney not far from to the CBD. The size of Paddington is approximately 1.6 square kilometres. It has 5 parks covering nearly 8.7% of total area. The main street - Oxford street, features two endless rows of shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, pubs, local designers, grocers and etc. There are many buses from Paddington into the city. Rest of the public transport facilities are also excellent in the area but perhaps its most glaring weakness is a lack of a train station. Adding to the fooding and shopping options, Paddington is just north of Moore Park and its stadiums and the theaters, cinemas, and restaurants of its Entertainment Quarter. Housing in Paddington is definitely on the higher end of the scale. Paddington is one of the best suburbs in all of inner Sydney for younger professionals.
