When it comes to shopping, and eating in Sydney, I don’t even know where to start! I lived in the city for over 10 years so here’s my abridged version for tourists who have a day to shop and eat in the Sydney CBD.  

 

Where to Eat and Shop in the Sydney CBD

 

Westfield Sydney

Where to shop in Sydney for high-end fashion houses? Go to Westfield Mall located in Pitt St Mall for labels like Mui Mui, Prada, Bottega Veneta and Christina Louboutin and Chanel. There are also shops like Gap and Zara, so there is a little bit of everything for everyone. I personally love getting a little retail therapy from a store called Sass and Bide. Their clothes are stylish and funky, so if you are into that look then I highly recommend checking them out. Here’s a full list of shops for your reference.

Food on Five (Westfield Level 5)

There’s food court in Westfield called Food on Five, click here to see all your options. This is not your average food court, this is like a high end food court where there are many great options for eating. I recommend checking it out, but note it can get very busy there so be prepared.

Myer and David Jones

The great thing about shopping at Westfield is Myer and David Jones are attached. And even though it can be a maze it’s great for rainy days or hot days as you are completely undercover, indoors and comfortable. See the picture below there two glass bridges on the left and right? To your left is Myer and to your right is David Jones.
