Shopping delights in the city centre

For shopping pleasure, the city centre is perfect. From the grand Queen Victoria Building and the elegant Strand Arcade to the Pitt Street Mall and your favourite international brands, the city centre of Sydney is truly delightful for shopping. 

The Pitt Street Mall is one of Australia's busiest and most vibrant shopping centres. A pedestrian mall between Market, George, King and Castlereagh streets, it is home to boutiques, global brands, department stores and fabulous arcades. 

The Strand Arcade, built in 1891, is named after one of London's smartest shopping streets of the 19th century, The Strand. In the arcade you'll find fashion designers, jewellers and a shoemaker, among the enticing boutiques, cafes and restaurants. 

Strand Arcade, Sydney

For top international brands, check out Westfield Sydney. The stylish indoor shopping complex, at the mall's southern end, has over 250 fashion, food and lifestyle stores. Towering above it is the Sydney Tower Eye, where an outdoor glass-floored platform offers breathtaking views.

You can walk under cover from the Pitt Street Mall to the Queen Victoria Building, affectionately called the QVB. Built in the 1890s and wonderfully restored in the 1980s, the palatial arcade has three levels devoted to fashion, jewellery, homewares and gifts as well as cafes and restaurants.

The Tea Room serves superb high tea, daily, in the QVB's gorgeous Grand Ballroom. Next to the QVB, on the corner of George, Park and Pitt streets, is The Galeries, where fashion, art, music, books, technology and food meet over several floors.

The top level is home to Japanese bookstore Kinokuniya, which has a huge range of books – some 300,000 titles.
