A must visit in Sydney which compares well with GUM in Moscow. The shopping is similar also. One of the finest buildings in Australia with plenty to explore. Check out the sales in January.

The facility has numerous shops and cafes. The building itself is quite beautiful with many photo opportunities. The only downside is the early closing hours.

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
