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.

    Queen Victoria Building - grand heritage olde-worlde, iconic copper-domes, stained glass, 5 level of shops bedecked with Christmas cheer, giant Xmas tree in the interior. The Great Australian Clock (astronomical) hangs suspended from the ceiling – amazing. Elegant high-end shops, restaurants, cafes, white-red-green baubles exterior Xmas tree, lit up at the night - retail-therapy time. Will visit again soon.

    Lovely gallery. Hard to choose a print but I fell in love with Lily the Koalo so I adopted her and brought her back to the UK.
    Graham spent a lot of time with us explaining his work and the hidden words.
    Well worth a visit to the Rocks to visit this amazing gallery.

    The Rocks Markets, on a Sunday, picturesque against the Harbour Bridge background - very lively, tourists or locals, bustling & crowded it had a vibrant feel, nearly Christmas. Crystals, Clothing, accessorize with pendants, hairties & bows; chocolates and fudges, different tastes and artisan products, too many items to see, too little time. Browse, try, buy; will return again when we visit Sydney. (I have gait/walking challenges (stroke), wear a legbrace.)

    Browsed the many shops & luxury brands for sale as well as enjoyed a couple of hot chocolates a a small cafe. It was a great place to come & explore when wanting to kill some time. I would like to re-visit as this is the same location as the Sydney Tower.

    Small market with multiple seafood(raw and cooked). Few bakeries and cafes. Prices are okay and it was not very crowded on a Monday 9am.

    This Saturday market featured Local artisans that make everything from jewelry, leather goods, and clothing. There were an array of goods and food items. This was a casual and relaxing way to spend Saturday morning.

    This is a lovely location for a discount outlet. It is not too far from the CBD with picturesque setting. There are many branded stores with good discounts - particularly ones not commonly available in SA. Overall a very pleasant experience.

    We had a great time visiting the tram sheds with a group of eight friends. We enjoyed it so much that we went back a second time to try a different restaurant three nights later, and it was equally as much fun. Both the Japanese and Chinese restaurants were excellent and the staff were very competent. Oddly, we didn’t plan to go to Asian restaurants it was just at the other venues were either closed at 5:30 pm, or lacking in energy and life.

    Situated in the back streets of Surry Hills, this gallery is worth finding. It is only opened Thursday-Sunday and closes at 4pm. The top floor is Brett’s last studio and they have left everything as if he could walk in at any minute. It is an amazing way to see a snippet into his life and to see who he actually knew. Downstairs is a number of Brett’s artwork and to see them up close is special. The best thing is it is totally free. If you like your art and want to check out one of Australia’s best artists do find time to visit.

    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.

    Exterior facade looked very old but surprisingly the interior is very modern. Good varieties of shops/dining & a huge Asian supermarket. Paddy Market is in the basement of this mall.

    A fun place to spend a few hours. Plenty to see and loads of eats. Many people with dogs, some of them snappy and yappy.

    One of the many malls found along George Street . A mid size modern mall with a good mix of retail & dining. A decent size COLES supermarket adds to the attraction. Definitely one of the better mid range malls along George Street. Worth a visit
