So much to see here, give yourself some time to see the creative genius of these people. Rich culture, brilliant food to share, busking...(got to see my gum boot dance) and creativity...again...not enough time was spent here

Everyone seems to have the same stuff for sale. Some is hand made especially the bead work but much seems to be mass produced.

Allow yourself plenty of time because this place is huge. Great place to buy gifts for yourself and to take home for friends. Prices are good.

when you're in the neighborhood, or when you have time. It's not that special, a busy market with to much of the same market stalls. A few nice things, but I expected more special, unique stuff so I was a little disappointed.

Hi Beth, answers are yes and yes. You will feel quite safe there. Also agree with Michelle to keep your wits about you. Don't allow wallets to be seen etc. Food hall also very good, give it a try.
