Top ways to experience Pitt Street Mall and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Pitt St is one of the oldest main roads running through Sydney’s CBD. The middle stretch, in the heart of the city, is a paved, pedestrianised mall.
This is really just one big, concentrated shopping area and is dominated by big retail complexes like Myers, Sydney Tower and Westfield. Lots of chain-stores have their flagship shop here.
For something a little bit different, it’s nice to walk through the Victorian-style Strand Arcade. Built in 1891, it has retained its old-world charm and houses more specialised shops and boutiques. Haigh’s Chocolates is always a drawcard here.
Street performers regularly pop up in the mall and there is some limited seating in the centre of the mall, although its a busy area (especially around lunch time), so don’t rely on finding a spare seat.
If you're not interested in shopping, you can skip it altogether.

The mall is regarded as one of the trendiest and busiest shopping districts not just in Sydney, but all of Australia. It's a relatively short pedestrian area between King and Market Streets but still hosts nearly 500 specialty outlets and the Westfield Centre. Good range but mostly top end. Busy mall, throngs of people when we visited on the Monday and Thursday. I think a 'must do' when visiting Sydney if only for the experience.

It's more than just a regular street, or a street with shops all along. It is lively enough to host numerous artistic, musical, protest, and cultural events. It is home to high-end retailers as well as huge tech giants like Apple and Microsoft. I'll keep loving it forever ..

The Pitt Street Mall is one of the shopping hubs in Sydney. Most major chains are have stores here in some stunning buildings. This mall is quite clean and tidy and the people seem to socially distance as much as they can.

This is one of two malls in Sydney the other one being the Martin Place Mall. This one has more people as has more shops. It goes from Market Street and King Street. It has many seats and the only thing missing is a visitor information booth. There was one in Martin Place but that has been taken away .

We visited Pitt Street Mall on a dreary showery day.

The mall had lots of people but they scattered once the showers came.

I enjoyed listening to the busker play beautiful music whilst my wife shopped nearby.

The location is near Westfield and The Sydney Tower.

Pitt Street Mall is a great place to visit. It is especially nice if you are looking for some interesting street entertainment. If you want to do some shopping then prepare to pay high prices! Lots of shops, plenty of fashion, cafes and the like. We love to just walk around and look.

We enjoyed our shopping on the mall. Skechers is here and I got a bargain. There is also a convenient Woolworths metro supermarket.

Some good shops available - not the biggest of place which is preferable for those not fully addicted to shopping. Some really upmarket shops too!

If you like malls, this is probably as good as it gets. Doesn't go for many blocks but is spacious with lots of seating. Has a variety of stores adjoining it, both complexes like Westfield and heritage type arcades like the Strand ; so there is something for everyone.
Quite a few buskers for those who like music while they relax.
