Southern city centre, Chinatown, Haymarket, Darling Harbour
Retail and food and drink outlets provide the most dominant business opportunities here. The area is the smallest of the 10 village centres, and is particularly famous for its Chinese stores, restaurants and the night markets in Dixon Street.
Sydney's Chinese New Year Festival is centred on this part of town and Paddy’s Market on Hay Street attracts millions of visitors a year. It also takes in the southern half of the city centre and Darling Harbour, a revitalised port area now popular with tourists, local revellers and conferences and trade show attendees.
After the Harbour village centre, Haymarket has the second highest number of workers within its boundaries. The two biggest employers in the Haymarket village centre are the professional and building services, and the public sector.
There has been a high rate of residential growth in this area, with nearly all residents housed in multi-storey apartment blocks. Locals are well served by public transport with Central station, the Railway Square bus interchange and several light rail stops in the village.
The City is improving streetscaping and laneways in the area, making it more inviting for shoppers and diners.
