“nice just to look at”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

loved the architecture but all the shops were empty and it seems too pricey for the average person so it had a cold, lifeless feel. Just enjoy it for its history but shop elsewhere

“Expensive, but great to look at”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Its nice to go here and pretend like you'll buy something, makes you feel rich. There are some less expensive shops on the lower grounds which I usually shop in. Some nice places to look at if you're looking for a wedding ring

“Look up...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

...its not your vulgar modern shopping mall. You're surrounded by beautiful Victorian-era detail, even in the lifts. If you can't afford to patronise any of the exclusive little stores you can still enjoy a coffee in the adorable surroundings.

“I love this building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Mainly because - as hard as I try not to - I always seem to end up coming out of a different door each time. It never ceases to amaze me.

Great building. Great shops, food stalls, toilets, the Town Hall train connections. You really could not ask for more. Always a great buzz about the place. People moving to and fro.

Bit of a spiritual focal point for my trips to Sydney.
