Fashion and Shopping
Sydney is one of the world’s great style capitals and it’s the perfect place to stock up on designer fashion, local labels, handcrafted jewellery and chic homewares. From multi-storey shopping centres to tiny boutiques, bustling markets and historic arcades, there’s plenty of ways to shop in Sydney.
In the city centre, stroll through the 19th century grandeur of the Queen Victoria Building and Strand Arcade, home to elegant boutiques, dressmakers, hatters, antique stores and cafes. In nearby Pitt Street Mall and Westfield Sydney you’ll find more than 250 local and international stores.
Discover hidden boutiques in the narrow lanes of The Rocks or pick up artisan goods at the bustling Rocks Markets every weekend. Browse luxury fashion in Martin Place, including spectacular jewellery from Australia’s oldest pearling company, Paspaley.
The Intersection in Paddington is Sydney’s hub for local designer labels. Don’t miss Paddington Markets every Saturday for up and coming names. Surry Hills is great for vintage fashion, while across the harbour Mosman is known for its stylish homewares.
For tailored shopping tours with your own personal stylist, David Jones, Myer and Westfield Sydney all have stylists to help you browse the latest fashions and accessories in the city centre. There are also stylists who will take you to the fashionable neighbourhoods where famous celebrities shop.
If you love a bargain, the outlet stores of Market City in Chinatown and Birkenhead Point in Drummoyne should be at the top of your list. You can even hop aboard the Shopper Hopper ferry to Birkenhead Point to combine a harbour cruise with bargain hunting.
Designer shopping is a pleasure in the spectacular Harbour City. Cap off a perfect day with an ascent of the Sydney Tower Eye above Westfield for panoramic views over the city, high tea in the ornate Tea Room in the QVB or an indulgent treatment at a luxurious day spa.
