RETAIL THERAPY? PITT STREET IS AT THE HEART OF SHOPPING IN SYDNEY
Sydney is one of the world’s great style capitals and it’s the perfect place to stock up on designer fashion, local labels, handcrafted jewellery and chic homewares. From multi-storey shopping centres to tiny boutiques, bustling markets and historic arcades, there’s plenty of ways to shop in Sydney. The main CBD retail precinct in fits into just a few blocks - the 4 main streets of the CBD that run parallel from north to south from Circular Quay to the Town Hall are Elizabeth, Castlereagh, Pitt and George Streets.
The shopping precinct sits along these 4 streets in between the cross streets of Martin Place and Park Street to the south.
Getting here from our Potts Point properties via the Kings Cross train line is one stop to Martin Place Station - 5 mins on the train, or a 15 min walk down William Street and across Hyde Park.
With the installation of the new Sydney Light Rail (coming from our Randwick Properties) it's easy and takes about 20 mins, the majority of George Street down the retail shopping precinct end is now a pedestrian mall area, making it safer to carry lots of shopping bags!
