Yes, there are a selection open - some duty free alcohol, cigarettes, cameras, makeup, a newsagent and McDonalds - but all the good stores are closed (like all of the clothing stores, including Victoria's Secret - which I long to visit as it's the only store in Australia and shopping on line with them costs a fortune in postage!)

N.B. - I presume you're talking International terminal? I have no idea if you're referring to the domestic.

If there are flights due to fly out, then yes the duty-free shop will be open.

Restaurants and dutyfree are always open as long as there's flights operating.

You can also visit the duty free shops again on your return.
