We knew relatively little about Sydney before we arrive and decided to stroll the city as one of the first things we did. We were just wandering around and found the most amazing shopping and scenic part of Sydney. We learned this area is called...More

Many Australian city’s do this, just be mindful of the weather because there is no covering from rain except the shops. I like this particular mall because they have live entertainment like buskers they are a brilliant addition to the feel. It’s a busy place...More

Great for shopping and food, plenty of options. Mind your prams, keep streamlined and do not stop abruptly walking along the pavements, just keep walking! as it can get really crowded!

If you have a limited amount of time to do your shopping then this a good place to start from. There is a mix of high end, middle of the road and cheaper places. Lots of bars and cafes around to refresh afterwards.

Sympathise with Jason W below, he was obviously in the Westfield Mall and it is so easy to get lost. The Pitt street Mall is a mixture, some upmarket malls like Westfield which are all about clothing and major brands and other stores like the...More

The Pitt Street Mall is not the best place to go if you are looking for souvenirs for gifts, as it is prohibitively expensive. The majority of its stores are for clothing, but it does have some nice restaurants. Just beware that the exit to...More

A centrally located mall with a good variety of shops and a great range of different eateries. Probably the best selection of decent stores we’ve found in Sydney.

We had a great time "chilling" in the Pitt Street Mall last month. There were a great variety of street performers while 'people watching' could also be indulged in at great length.

Probably one of the best places to shop in central Sydney. Prices are similar to Malls and outlets plus a much bigger range of shops. Easy to find and get to.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
