Well after you visit Pitt Street Mall, walk through the Strand Arcade on the way to the Queen Victoria Building. It has lovely shops, eateries and is a step back into history. Make it part of your Sydney CBD Walk.

Refurbished with all its original decor, this arcade is a sight to see, let alone having a look at the shops contained within. There are three levels of little boutique stores with a few cafes as well.

The Strand Arcade, with its boutique shops and cafes & restaurants, is one of Sydney's oldest. Worth a look even if you don't plan on doing any shopping.

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
