The last of Sydney's arcades which were a feature of the shopping precinct from 1880's to 1960's. People from Melbourne will find it ho-hum - theirs are so much better.

Loved walking through and seeing the old architecture and interior details. They also have a Crumpler store for those who love their bags as much as I do!

The wife wanted the handbags and I was able to pick up some great estate jewellery. Then we had a terrific lunch. No doubt about these Australians, they know how to eat well and everything is so fresh. To die for.

I love the Strand Arcade. Lots of interesting specialty stores and beautiful old world charm. You can still get a traditional shoe shine ad the nut store has been there forever serving up nuts and sweets. There are two different chocolate stores selling quality chocolate and little cafes for a quick break. Don't visit Sydney without a walk through this true gem.

The Strand Arcade offers old world elegance and charm right between The Pitt Street Mall and busy George Street in the heart of Sydney's CBD.
The main attractions are the beauty of the multi story interior and the peaceful haven that it offers in the center of the city. The stores are high end and some are quite interesting, but nearly all are high priced. It is a wonderful place for window shopping and a quiet coffee.
