40 William Henry Street, Ultimo NSW 2007
Enter at Bulwara Road

Saturday 16 March from 11am to 1:15pm

Check-in: 11am to 12 noon. Swap: 12:15pm to 1:15pm

The City of Sydney and The Clothing Exchange are joining eco-friendly forces to bring a clothes swap for the whole family to Ultimo.

Swapping is a clever and thrifty way to update your wardrobe, save money and help fight textile waste.

If you have garments in excellent condition you once loved but are no longer your favourites, join us at Ultimo Community Centre, Ultimo, for a swap. Find out more below about what you can and can't bring.

This event is only open to residents who live in the City of Sydney council area. This map shows the City of Sydney boundaries.

Please note there is a 1 hour check-in period and 15 minutes of set-up time. Depending on when you check in, this means you could have up to 1 hour of downtime before the swap begins. You might like to grab a coffee or mingle with fellow fashion enthusiasts.

What you can bring 

Bring up to 5 items of seasonally appropriate, excellent condition clothing for any size, gender and age. Excellent condition means the clothing is clean, pressed and free from rips, holes, stains or major faults. Only bring items you would proudly give to a friend. 

  • Tops, shirts, blouses and jackets 

  • Pants, jeans and shorts 

  • Skirts, dresses and suits 

  • Belts, bags and shoes 

  • Scarves, ties and hats 

All styles and brands are accepted, provided they're in excellent condition – so keep in mind that items will range from on-trend pieces to older classics. And although we love receiving them, we can’t guarantee everyone who brings a designer item will take home an equivalent piece. 

What you can't bring 

Items are checked before being put out for the clothes swap. If your items are unsuitable, you may be asked to take them home. 

  • Jewellery and wigs 

  • Underwear, socks and swimwear 

  • Sportswear and activewear  

  • Anything stained, torn or unclean 

  • Noticeably worn out, shabby, pilling or frayed items
