The Strand Arcade – CBD

img_6683

Built in 1891, the three storied Strand Arcade between Pitt Street and George Street in the CBD is a rare gem of Victorian architecture, and unfortunately the only surviving arcade of its type in Sydney.

This is just a beautiful building to wander through with its ornate stained-glass windows and tiled floors, and full of over 60 small boutiques and and cafes.

Check out the iconic Australian Akubra hat at Strand Hatters, and if you want something unique to take home from Australia, don’t miss Dinosaur Designs on the first floor which stocks handmade jewellery , homewares etc.
