Our Strand Arcade store which is located at the George Street end is our first Sydney store. The Strand, dating back to 1891, is a historic site that suits our company’s image perfectly. The heritage aspects of the store have been carefully...more

Wonderful chocolates but they always seem to taste better from a location like the Strand, QVB or Block Arcade in Melbourne. The presentation is wonderful.

This store is at the George Street entrance to the Strand Arcade. The chocolates are absolutely beautiful, although they're not particularly cheap. Their friendly and helpful staff are always happy to provide samples to try before buying. A must for any chocolate lover to visit.

When ever we visit Sydney, Haigh's is a must stop. Stocking up on frogs and trademark speckles. Love free samples on purchase.

The Strand has to be one of the best arcades in Australia and Haigh's always seems to be associated with quality such as this, QVB and Block in Melbourne, the presentation is wonderful but always feels better eating from such an outlet. Wonderful for gifts.

There were a couple of recommendations for Australian chocolates but I have to say I liked Haighs the best . Priced well and the chocolate was super. Try the chocolate covered almonds. The staff is also very courteous and helpful.

The chocolate made by this company is simply delicious. I've been to Switzerland and I actually think Haigh's does it better. I absolutely recommend the packaged peppermint frogs and the berry chocs. But you can also handpick your own box of delicious chocolates from a...More

For all chocolate lovers, this is a must. There's a few other brands but nothing quite like Haigh's.

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
