This small museum has enough to learn about Jewish life in Australia and the holocaust. The history of Australian Jews who were in ww2 and had some impact in the country are on display too. I will recommend.

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
