This day is the anniversary of the Battle of Amiens, which was one of the most successful advances made by Allied forces during the WWI. The efforts of the ANZAC Corps were orchestrated by General Sir John Monash and would be much lauded as an example of combined arms warfare in a conflict mostly remembered for the stalemate of trench warfare. For those who value its place in Australian history it has become known as 08-08.
On this day in 1880 Earle Page was born. He was later to become Prime Minister of Australia.
On this day in 1909 Mary MacKillop died.
On this day in 1959 the Aboriginal painter Albert Namatjira died.

Markets in Sydney

Thursday 8th August 2024

Sydney’s Paddys Markets Haymarket

This is Sydney's best-known market and and one of the longest established. In a large indoor setting on the edge of Chinatown and on the tourist tram route you will find stalls selling all manner of wares and produce. On the upper floors of the same building you will find food halls and a large number of variety shops. We at White Hat have shopped at this maket many times over the years and have been as delighted with the things that remain the same as we have with the the new additions.
