    Visited this iconic building which has been transformed into an exclusive shopping mall. Some amazing shops and restaurants, and a brilliant toy and model shop! The architecture is wonderful with beautiful staircases, and a working world clock. Well worth a visit!

    Graham has unusual but extremely interesting artwork. We were drawn immediately into his gallery as we happened to walk past. Graham was very helpful and friendly.

    Browsed the many shops & luxury brands for sale as well as enjoyed a couple of hot chocolates a a small cafe. It was a great place to come & explore when wanting to kill some time. I would like to re-visit as this is the same location as the Sydney Tower.

    An amazing array of seafood on display with some amazing prices to match for the high end crab/crays. Very busy place and service took a while, and difficult to find a table and seating to eat, although rear of building is under new construction so should fix this down the track.

    A fascinating space and a wonderful insight into the creative world of Brett Whiteley.
    This former warehouse was both home and working studio for Whiteley from 1987 - 1992. Left untouched after his death, the upstairs level includes unfinished works, paints, brushes and all sorts of painting tools.
    Drips and splashes of paint mark the floorboards and one wall is covered in handwritten quotes and images and scribbled musings. He filled his space with assorted and seemingly random odds and ends that caught his eye and inspired him - shells, seed pods, binoculars, books, a cricket ball. If you have any interest in the artistic process, it’s a must.
    Downstairs is more like a conventional gallery and is currently displaying an exhibition ‘Chapters 1959–69’, a collection of his works made between the ages of 20 and 30, a period of intense travel and artistic experimentation. It includes his disturbing Christie works, the London Zoo works as well as paintings from his time in New York and Fiji.
    It’s not a big gallery so you probably only need to allow an hour. However the exhibitions change from time to time so it’s worth a repeat visit.
    Staff were very helpful. They gave us a brief introduction and were on hand to give more information whenever needed.
    The studio is a little out of the way, in a small back street in Surry Hills. We walked from Central Station and it took about 15 minutes. Even when we arrived, we didn’t spot the building immediately because it is an unobtrusive, plain brown colour.
    NOTE: Entry is free and there’s no need to book ahead. However it is only open Thursday - Sunday.

    This was a charming abet small market. I thought it would be a lot bigger. Easy to get to on the bus. A variety of booths from clothing to jewelry, to fruits and vegetables and a small but vibrant group of stalls with food to eat. I just thought it would be bigger. I did find a booth with knit clothing and ended up buying two knit dresses and a top and slacks. It was called Matea. The salesperson/designer was delightful and I have already worn two of the pieces. There is an online shop too.

    This is a lovely location for a discount outlet. It is not too far from the CBD with picturesque setting. There are many branded stores with good discounts - particularly ones not commonly available in SA. Overall a very pleasant experience.

    We had a great time visiting the tram sheds with a group of eight friends. We enjoyed it so much that we went back a second time to try a different restaurant three nights later, and it was equally as much fun. Both the Japanese and Chinese restaurants were excellent and the staff were very competent. Oddly, we didn’t plan to go to Asian restaurants it was just at the other venues were either closed at 5:30 pm, or lacking in energy and life.

    The mall is regarded as one of the trendiest and busiest shopping districts not just in Sydney, but all of Australia. It's a relatively short pedestrian area between King and Market Streets but still hosts nearly 500 specialty outlets and the Westfield Centre. Good range but mostly top end. Busy mall, throngs of people when we visited on the Monday and Thursday. I think a 'must do' when visiting Sydney if only for the experience.

    A fun place to spend a few hours. Plenty to see and loads of eats. Many people with dogs, some of them snappy and yappy.

    One of the many malls found along George Street . A mid size modern mall with a good mix of retail & dining. A decent size COLES supermarket adds to the attraction. Definitely one of the better mid range malls along George Street. Worth a visit

    Exterior facade looked very old but surprisingly the interior is very modern. Good varieties of shops/dining & a huge Asian supermarket. Paddy Market is in the basement of this mall.

    I learned a lot about the different types of opal, they were very knowledgeable and helped me choose a great option. I would recommend visiting when coming to Sydney. Right next to the queen Victoria mall
