Best shopping in Sydney

Updated: Oct 12, 2022

The Sydney Town Hall is located in the Central Business District (CBD) of Sydney and is the historical centre and the main commercial centre, located on iconic Sydney Harbour. The Sydney CBD is Sydney's city centre.

The Queen Victoria Building (abbreviated as the QVB) is a heritage-listed late-nineteenth-century building designed by the architect George McRae located at 429–481 George Street in the Sydney central business district.

The Strand Arcade is a heritage-listed Victorian-style retail arcade located at 195-197 Pitt Street in the heart of the Sydney central business district, between Pitt Street Mall and George Street. The arcade contains the preliminary boutiques that characterized the Sydney shopping experience of the 1890s.

When the arcade opened in 1892, it was said to be the very latest in shopping centre designs and was described as, "The finest public thoroughfare in the Australian colonies". The arcade has endured two depressions, two World Wars and two major fires.

Here are the links to The Queen Victoria Building and the Strand Arcade websites.
