I am in Sydney for only 4 months. I will need some sport stuff to hike in the Blue Mountains, or walk through Kangaroo Island and the Red Centre.
Do you know any second hand sport store in Sydney where I could find hiking shoes, backpack, polar fleece jacket, etc.?

It doesn't have to be a second hand store, it could just be a cheap one, as Decathlon in France :)

Thank you very much!

You could try Aussie Disposals. I'm not sure if there's one near whre you are in Sydney, but check out the store locations on their website. Good luck!

Unfortunately, the shops are quite far from Sydney... :(
Thank you anyway!

Don't laugh, but I reckon K Mart and Big W have got some pretty good equipment at budget prices these days. Sure, their top of the line spleeping bag won't be rated to protect against Antartic frostbite, but it won't cost you five hundred bucks either.

It's worth a look at least.

While I think of it, there are a couple of cheap disposal type stores in the Sydney CBD on George Street up towards Central Station.
