Pitt Street Mall is a very trendy, busy and famous Sydney shopping district that lines each side of a pedestrian only portion of Pitt Street in Sydney's Central Business District. Even though it occupies just one block between Market and King Street, you will find over 500 specialty stores and many large flagship stores here.

One of the trendiest and busiest shopping districts in Australia, Pitt Street Mall includes the modern new Westfield Sydney Shopping Centre which alone has nearly 240 stores. Between the Westfield centre and the street mall you will find flagship stores such as Zara, Esprit and Guess. There is also a huge 5 level Myer store, part of Australia's largest department store chain along with several large shopping arcades including the historic Strand Arcade built in 1891.

Even if shopping isn't your thing, Pitt Street Mall is just a fun place to hang out with lots of energy and plenty of street performers to entertain you throughout the day. Some of the buskers, musicians and dancers are very, very talented. Don't be surprised if a flashmob suddenly breaks into a routine either.

The mall recently underwent a major 10 million dollar upgrade and revitalization. It is one of the highest rent retail districts in the world - number two behind New York City's famous 5th Avenue according to at least one source.

Shopaholics beware you may spend your entire vacation here.

Nearby attractions: Sydney Tower, Art Gallery of New South Wales and Hyde Park.
