A wonderful testimony to a legend

Have done the trail many times but not through any guided tour. It's the Balmain that many of us remember with fond memories - not quite the same today as "progress" and development have overtaken the suburb.Many of the terraces are being overtaken by apa

Balmain Market

Reviewed By Andrea S - Sydney, AustraliaSydney, Australia

Very disappointing and not as discribed

Sydney.com makes this market sound really cool with 140 stalls, second hand books and clothes and live music plus international food stalls. I took the ferry today from Kirribilli to Balmain to see the markets and I found it was a waste of time. The locat
