There was a pub just across from The Three Monkeys pub in the city I went to few times, always had the footy on.

You'll probably find a fair few places will have the games on.

Well as a 'normal' UK 3pm kickoff is the middle of the night in Sydney not many pubs will be showing EPL live.

Cheers on George Street always shows Premier league matches, its open till very late as well so even good in the summer.
Otherwise you migth find a few places on Saturday showing the matches, even some smaller suburbs with hotels show them.

Ironically its easier to watch Prem footy than the UK as there aren't the same licensing restrictions. So the Saturday 3pm games that never get shown live in the UK are televised in Aus. Sydney and Melbourne should have bars with 24 hour access to footy, failing that the Casinos are your best best. Even Adelaide has the footy on in most of the bars. Broome was a little trickier!

Crown Casino (Melbourne) has those ma-hoo-sive screens to watch them on! Awesome!

Yep, re-runs on Monday evenings on Foxtel, but only the main games, you don't get the Viewer Choice like you do with the live ones.
