Find vintage threads at the Glebe Markets

Don't miss Glebe’s popular Saturday markets (10 am to 4 pm), where bargain hunters and bohemians flock for second-hand clothing, handmade arts and crafts and up-and-coming designers. There's a handful of food stalls selling everything from Turkish pide to artisan pastries for you to enjoy while listening to the soothing sounds of street performers on the lawn.

Stroll along the Glebe foreshore

Away from the hubbub of Glebe Point Road, there's peace and quiet to be found along the harbour foreshore. Glebe's waterfront encompasses four parks – Federal, Jubilee, Bicentennial and Blackwattle Bay – spanning more than 17 hectares (42 acres) of open grasslands, sports fields, playgrounds and wetlands. Stretch your legs on the Glebe Foreshore Walk, a leisurely 2.2 kilometre (1.4 mile) track that meanders from Bicentennial Park to the Sydney Fish Market in Pyrmont. The parks have barbecue and picnic areas if you’d rather just kick back.

Browse the bookshops

Bibliophiles head to Glebe for its string of local bookshops. Drop into independently run Gleebooks, where shelves are lined with the newest titles in Australian literature as well as crime, history and philosophy. Around the corner on Derwent Street, Florilegium specialises in gardening titles, with more than 5000 new and second-hand books. Sappho is another well-known book and record store, with a beautiful courtyard café that doubles as a wine bar in the evening.

Get cosy in the cafés

Glebe’s wake-up call is at The Wedge Espresso, which serves coffee using a variety of methods, such as filter and cold brew, alongside an all day breakfast menu catering to the vegan and gluten free. Brewristas is another popular choice among coffee connoisseurs, offering everything from pour over to siphon and cold drip. Pair your coffee with a decadent pastry, sourced from Textbook Boulangerie Patisserie in Alexandria.
