Clothing? Shoes? Homewares and decorator items? Cheap? Expensive? Souvenir-style covered with koalas and the like? Australian, eg uggs and akubras? Unique designer that you won't find at home? Handmade market fashions? Vintage?

Agree with Lien, what shopping we've done has been mostly around Centrepoint, etc area in CBD. That was from the point of view of going to Sydney for other reasons and taking the opportunity to take advantage of big city shopping, eg our local DJ's department store has three floors versus Sydney's six, or was it seven (been a while), across two buildings. Your priorities might be different.

If you want designer's labels at factory outlet prices, try Birkenhead Point. How to get there depends on where you are staying.

The other place to consider is the DYFO at Homebush - factory outlets of designer rags mainly, and shoes.

January is the month for sales. Our own favourite place is Chatswood. There are 2 main shopping centres there - Westfied and Chatswood Chase. You should get clearance sales on then.

Shopping places for women? All shopping places in Sydney are for women. Men are just the shopping trolleys.

The city is best. All of these places are in the vicinity of Pitt St Mall, and are linked by underground walkways/overhead bridges.

The CBD by definition is the most central densest conglomeration of a variety of commerce. In the absence of any more details from you, and taking a wild guess that your accommodation will be located convenient to there, that is the simple answer, yes.

I agree that if you want discount good quality shopping, Birkenhead point is great. Just a 10 minute bus ride from the city and set on the river, a lovely half day visit.
