Don't go during peak office hours, you won't be able to move during the commute and lunch periods. You can meander all over the city, as there are many divergent corridors.

In the 70s the Mayor wanted to demolish this building and make a concrete plaza. Ah, the building was still so beautiful, even boarded up, that for once the public got off their bottoms and saved it! Well done. It's really worth going just to look at the structure. For tourists it is totally full of shopping, food is all... More

The building itself always pleases me and I just enjoy wandering about it. A large range of good shops with unique little restaurants and coffee houses. We had a very good Devonshire tea in one establishment

One of the prettiest buildings in Sydney, worth a visit even if only for window shopping. So beautiful.

We got coffee, candy, and good pastries here while we stayed in Sydney. The WIFI is free and there were soooo many tourists taking advantage of it, sometimes it was hard to find a place to sit. They had some extreme price watches/ accessories that you could buy, but no one would give me 21000 AUD to get a time... More

The building was recovered in an old world style which is beautiful. Lots of upscale stores and food, so you can Walt spend a few hours here. Don't miss it.

Beautiful building, stunning stain glass windows, beautiful stores, great little cafes. Well worth a visit if you are in Sydney. Particularly stunning at Christmas with the huge Christmas tree extending across many floors.
