“Great for Shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Loads of places to get good value for souvenirs. Alot of the shops around the harbour are quite expensive, walk for another few minutes to get the same ones for better value. Watch out if you are buying Ugg Boots. There are quite popular and alot of places sell fake ones that are made in China and still charge the smae amount as you pay for the real ones. Make sure the outside of the store says Ugg Australia and that if you pay any less than $140 they are probably fake.

“Nice place for a walk!”

This place isn't all that big but it's a nice place to go for a walk. Old style looking building. Great places to eat or have a drink. Great atmosphere!
