A blast from the past is this 120 year old building. Definitely caters for tourists or well heeled locals. Saying that there are some unique articles in the up market shops. Definitely worth a walk through the building to see if anything takes your fancy...More

One of the most beautiful historic building in Sydney both inside and out, full of highclass stores and a multitude of cafes and eateries, we went in the lead up to Christmas and the building was busy, but not annoyingly so. The fact that it...More

Very beautiful inside and out. Filled with so much shopping and people. For a lunch time visit it was just filled with too many people for my taste.

I love the atmosphere. The shopping options are endless and very varied; the food, coffee and bar options are many. Any building that can have tables all through it’s central areas,attached to cafes on the edges of the building, is good place to visit

This place has many shops on several levels, and we were fortunate to be there in late December where everything was on sale.

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
