Oxford Street features prominently on this map. The area surrounding the length of this street is now considered a village and a center of the Gay and Lesbian community of Sydney.
Although undergoing lots of changes during the last few years the street is still the beginning of the Mardi Gras Parade every year, something Sydneysiders and overseas visitors look forward to. The parade celebrates life and bring to attention the ongoing issues that still concern the community.
The gay and lesbian community, once a very important part of this area has spread its wings to places like Crown Street, Newtown and around Surry Hills (not far away). Efforts are ongoing though to bring this fun part of town to its glory days.

In the daytime, the village is busy, not only with shoppers but those looking for a bite to eat. Lots of local character add to the colour of this part of the city, in the evening even more so. There are bars and restaurants, and some of the city’s best nighclubs. Gotta get that Doof, Doof thing going and dance the night away!
Oxford Street has fashion and clothes shops during the day, and in the evening and at night, bars and restaurants.
Hyde Park is also home to the ANZAC War Memorial, dedicated to those fallen in wars fought by Australia.
This leafy inner suburb harks back to a Sydney that elsewhere has long passed:
