A nice old building, the Westin Sydney Hotel is now inside, as well as plenty of restaurants and cafes. Maybe there is some mail.

At first we couldn’t find the old Sydney Post Office. We were looking on our map and all of a sudden a man asked us: “Can I help you?” He led us to the old Post Office. It was attractive, even though it was old....More

Located on the corner of George Street and Martin Place. Interesting exterior architecture. Remodelled interior with a great selection of eating options particularly in the basement. Had dinner here three nights in a row for three very different but enjoyable and affordable eating experiences.

This post office is harried and difficult with staff who make the simplest of transactions a dreadful chore. Find another post office.

The GPO Grand is a nice addition to Martin Place and a good use of a beautiful old building. The Westin Hotel uses the majority of the interior and has redeveloped the site with a fantastic skylight. A number of restaurants, both dine in and...More

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
