I was just wondering whether there is any magic shops in Sydney. I'm new to the scene so I'm not really sure what's out there.

My wife and I stumbled across Davenports Magic in London last year on our honeymoon and had never seen a shop like it before. Just curious to know if there is anything similar a bit closer to home that I could check out.

Thanks, Nathan

Thanks Aus, I'll have to check out Hey Presto next time I'm in the city. Shame there is only one left in Sydney.

I can vouch for Taylors.

Sean and Dianna have looked after me very well and even though they no longer have a bricks-and-motar presence I am comfortable enough in my prior customer experience to let that fly.

I will have a longer stay in Sydney next year. I will definitely visit Hey Presto Magic. Thanks for the information

I can't recommend Hey Presto enough.

I was there, for the first time, about a week ago. The clerk - whose name I didn't catch - was really helpful; I was able to talk openly about an effect that I'm working on (an original(?) variation of Cardtoon), and I received a lot of great advice from the guy ... he also put on a quick display of card and ring magic for me.

I was only in there for about 30 minutes or so (due mostly to the fact that the only parking I could find at the time was an over-priced parking garage lol) but if I didn't have that expense hanging over my head, I could have easily stayed longer.

Prior to that visit, I had previously ordered from their online catalogue - really quick delivery - I live west of the Blue Mountains, so in order to receive my package when I did, that must have meant that they had mailed it out by first post (that or Australia Post was just super efficient that week lol - but I'd rather give Hey Presto the credit heh)
