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.

Pitt Street Mall Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 Star Rating

4 Star Rating Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall is a vibrant hub of street entertainment, lazing on the seats or shopping in one of many recognisable stores. The Mall is wheel chair and kid friendly. There’s room for every one of all sizes, ages and varying mobility. Many stores remain open at night, as well as street entertainers doing their thing. This commercial area of Sydney has done well fusing business, shopping and recreation. One advantage of Pitt Street Mall is the easy access to nearby attractions, and landmarks such as The Queen Victoria Building, Sydney Tower, Hyde Park and Circular Quay. #sydney #pittstreetmall #shopping #entertainment

5 Star Rating I went with my 3 year old daughter I have to admit the city hasn’t got much for kids to play when we go to the Pitt street mall however when we went to Lego she had the time of her life playing with Lego other kids and two levels of fun we even bought an Elsa Lego puzzle And I being the adult had a great time cause my daughter enjoyed herself and she wasn’t bored

3 Star Rating Always a nice day shopping in Pitt Street, fav stores and lovely live music. Protesters are a bit too much - but I guess that's how they get their point of view over. Love going to the strand arcade from here too. Makes for a great day out!
