Built in the late 1800's, this building offers upmarket retail shops, cafes and dining options. Stop for lunch and marvel at the beauty of grand old building. Simply stunning.

The Strand Arcade was constructed in 1891. We visited in May as it’s a place my wife loves visiting due to the historical significance and Victorian architecture. The location is right in the CBD and we use this arcade to get between Pitt Street Mall...More

The Strand Arcade is a small arcade between George and Pitt with several boutique vendors and shops. They have nice little coffee/tea rooms and of course a Haigh's chocolate, which is the best there is. Premium leather goods, clothes, shoes, jewellery, health and beauty products,...More

One of Australia's better arcades, so much to see and do. Easy just to enjoy the history and grandeur of the building but there are so many shops and cafes to enjoy plus one of Sydney's best Italian restaurants (Pendolino's).

We were spending our last day in Sydney out shopping and came across the Strand Arcade. Lots of shops in a lovely old Victorian style building, not the high end designers boutiques like QVB, but more affordable stores. Quite busy on a Monday afternoon with...More

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
