The most popular tourist attraction in Australia is shopping, and shopping in Sydney is spectacular. There is so much variety. From high-end upmarket designer to bargain markets, there is something for everyone.
The shopping hours are generally 9.00am to 5.00pm with late night shopping till 9.00pm on Thursdays. Many of the shops and department stores are also open on Sundays.
If you are looking for art and souvenirs, The Rocks near Sydney Harbour Bridge is a good place to start. There are handmade goods, eateries, designer boutiques and duty-free shopping at Joe Mananas. There are weekend markets to browse and it is only a short walk from the ship.
Other amazing shopping areas include The Queen Victoria building which will take your breath away, it is a Romanesque building which was restored in the 1980’s. It has been standing in the same place since 1898 and can take a day to explore all by itself, and the Strand Arcade, branching off from Pitt Street Mall, another elegant, beautiful shopping area, where you can find a hatter that sells Australia’s famous Akubra hats widely worn throughout Australia.
Other shopping areas for fashion are Westfield, Sydney, The Galeries and World Square. Here there are fashion shops galore and jewellers selling Australian opals.
If you are looking for brand outlet stores you will find them at Market city, near Chinatown. There are also Asian restaurants to tempt you if you are feeling peckish.
Sydney is a shoppers paradise and if you love fashion there is no shortage of trendy boutiques if you are looking for something out of the ordinary.
The buildings housing the shops are beautiful to look at and it is a pleasure to wander along the buzzy high streets.
If you love food, there are no end of dining experiences to suit every budget. From upmarket Thai to cheap Japanese noodle bars the food is delicious. Pick from Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Korean, Japanese, Italian, Greek, Lebanese, French, Northern Italian and fast food. Something for everyone.
