Concierge.com's insider take:

Leafy, tony Queen Street is the place to head for antiques (traditional and otherwise) and sophisticated home design and fashion stores. Lee Hardcastle's shop in a Victorian townhouse is crowded with natural treasures, from giant sawfish teeth to leopard-skin rugs, giraffe skulls, and mounted whalebones. The owner can ship items anywhere in the world and uses a reputable company in Bondi Junction called Pack Send to handle the precious cargo (www.packsend.com.au). If you're looking to start an antipodean art collection, Rex Irwin is a good place to start. The gallery represents significant Australian artists such as painters Peter Booth, Robert Dickerson, and the late Fred Williams. Get a little of everything at Orson & Blake, where artisanal glassware and silk cushions made from Japanese obis sit amid an excellent edit of local and international fashion. Akira Isogawa is perhaps Australia's most acclaimed fashion designer, known for architectural designs that fuse traditional Japanese techniques with contemporary shapes and fabrics. Many of Sydney's fashion-forward brides choose to be married in his ephemeral, stunningly unusual dresses. Lisa Ho's designs eschew cutting-edge shapes in favor of floor-length, red carpet–worthy gowns in look-at-me hues.
