This synagogue's front facade looks a little like a 1930s cinema, but there's an impressive colonnaded interior. To get inside, you'll probably need to pre-contact the Community Affairs office at 63 Park St (tel 9831054669).

Opposite the synagogue is the decrepit Pollock St Post Office, once a grand Jewish school building. Walk a block north and Pollock St narrows ito a very colourful market alley full of balloon, tinsel and plastic-plant vendors.
