Martin Place is one of the few pedestrian areas in the city centre. It is quite a long strip, crossed by a number of streets where vehicular traffic is allowed to go through. The general area is a centre of financial activity as there are several banks and other institutions along its length. There is also a fountain, one of very few in the city! There are many shops as well, including big department stores as well as smaller ones and cafes, restaurants and others. It is a good area to go to for meeting people and some lunchtime relaxation.

In the heart of the business district it is full of amazing heritage buildings And home to the World War I Cenotaph. If you get a chance, go into some of the foyers and see the beauty of some of these buildings.

Martin Place is a cobblestone street, which is a pedestrian only walkway located in the heart of Sydney. A short walk from the Sydney Botanical Gardens, it is flanked by the Parliament of New South Wales on one end and the Sydney GPO on the other. Martin Place is a nice place to walk and spend time with many cafes and restaurants nearby. The Reserve Bank of Australia as well as the major commercial banks of the country all are located here. You may also come upon surprises such as I did, when I saw a living sculpture for the first time! One can spend 1-2 hours here.
