Inside was like a middle age decorated, it was nice, but it had heavy feeling. Shops & stores were nice, the benches to sit gave a feeling of the train station feeling. While my family was doing shopping and discovering around, I felt like I...More

Always enjoy popping in to window shop or enjoy a snack at one of the many eateries. Reminds me somewhat of The Burlington Arcade in London. A lovely spot for visitors to Sydney or to cool off on a hot Summer day

I simply enjoyed the walk around and through it from an architectural point of view. The big bonus was the stunning music that steadily comes from the grand piano constantly used by passing by performers. Hence housing both audio and visual beauty.

The building is still beautiful but the shops are mainly those which can be found in any shopping centre anywhere. Food outlets very overpriced.

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
