Pitt Street Mall
Smack bang in the heart of the Sydney Central Business District, Pitt Street Mall may be less than the size of two city blocks, but it remains one of the busiest (if not the busiest) retail shopping strips in all of Australia.
This pedestrian-only section of Pitt Street is a wide, attractive boulevard that runs for around 200m between King Street and Market Street.
Despite its small size, around 600 speciality stores in total call the Pitt Street Mall precinct home. Many major flagship chain stores occupy Pitt Street Mall’s prime real estate, along with other multi-level retailers including the fashion-centric Glasshouse, the historic Strand Arcade and Mid City Shopping Centre. It’s here you’ll also find the main entrance to the granddaddy of them all, Westfield Sydney. Sydney’s largest shopping centre encompasses six levels of mostly high-end retail shops and speciality food outlets, set beneath the landmark Sydney Tower.
A shopaholics paradise, whatever you might be looking for, chances are you’ll find it here. Mega department stores David Jones and Myer feature prominently, but a slow-paced stroll down the boulevard will reveal local and international designer boutiques, big brand tech showrooms, cafes and eateries, bookstores, gift shops and a sprinkling of more budget-friendly options as well.
Pitt Street is a prime spot for buskers and some of Sydney’s best street musicians set up here around the week, to entertain tourists and lunch-breaking local workers.
Home to almost all the world’s most glamorous brands and some seriously glitzy shopfronts, Pitt Street Mall is one of the flagship venues of Sydney Fashion Week, held every year in May.
