It used to be really good. I mean REALLY good. Now it's nowehere close. Limited choice, not-so-good prices. I'm giving it a 3 simply because I used to buy A LOT of stuff from this place. RIP

It’s a fun place to wander through, but every other stall sells the same thing. Good for buying Aussie souvenirs. I enjoyed the visit.

The best place to buy Australian souvenirs and T-shirt in the country...never found any places with load of designs of souvenirs, like this place. Only downside was some sellers are not friendly at all, particularly, phone accessories sections. Some are rather rude. Fruits and Vegetables sections are also value for money, you just have to choose carefully for your finest quality, but generally all are cheaper than big Super Market. Really recommend anyone to visit, fun to shop and watch the flow. 😃

Great fun to wander through the isles though it's often the same thing over and over. The fresh food is amazing and worth going for just on its own. Easy walk from central or parking nearby. Lots of good eats as well, be sure to look around before you choose.
