Shop up a Storm in Sydney

story by: House of Travel

Sydney is a shopper's paradise, with seemingly endless options whatever you're looking for, whether it's clothing, jewellery, accessories or any other kind of treasure.

With so much to choose from, we've narrowed it down to five of the best locations for shopping in this city. That means you can get straight to the fun part - buying great new belongings - rather than worrying about where you're going to go to find them.

So, without further ado, here are five of the best spots for shopping in the wonderful metropolis that is Sydney. What's more, these destinations are also home to great places to dine out, enjoy a coffee or savour some entertainment. 

The Galleries 
In the heart of the Sydney CBD you’ll find a cultural hub bubbling with fashion, art and music. An enticing mix of retailers and boutiques showcase their wares as you meander along the covered laneways and bridges. There is nowhere else in Sydney where you can find an inner city hub with such a diverse mix of boutiques and retailers housed in the one space. Head along and marvel at trendy local designs and the latest fashions from around the world. Get your literary fix at Kinokuniya, refuel at the global food court or grab a beer at The Arthouse.

Pitt Street Mall
Pitt Street Mall is a shopping delight, located right in the heart of Sydney's CBD. It's a gorgeous pedestrianised area spanning a couple of blocks, so you can really soak up the great retail atmosphere and shop til you drop with fellow fashion enthusiasts. 

Home to shops like Myer, David Jones, Glasshouse, Westfield Sydney and plenty of other destinations, there are more than 600 stores for you to peruse! 

With so many options, you're sure to fall in love with something here. 

Bondi Junction
At 500 Oxford St Bondi Junction, you'll find a great mall filled with all of your favourite stores, tasty eateries and awesome entertainment. Not to mention, you can also enjoy soaking in the vibe of this part of Sydney, which is relaxed and laid-back. 

Whether you're shopping for a new bikini at Seafolly or checking out Myer's latest offerings, you're sure to find something to your tastes at Bondi Junction. When you're finished shopping for the day, you can always head down to the beach!

DFO Homebush
If you don't mind heading slightly out of Sydney's CBD - just a mere 15km - you can enjoy the shopper's paradise that is DFO Homebush. 

Here, you can shop for all your favourite designer brands, whether you're a Sass & Bide enthusiast or a loyal Michael Kors customer. 

The mall puts on great deals and offers on a regular basis, so keep your eyes peeled for a bargain, and check out the event calendar for new store openings and any special events that might be on during your visit.

Queen Victoria Building
The Queen Victoria Building, or QVB, is a stunning piece of architecture located on George Street. It is home to more than 180 boutique fashion stores, as well as cafes, restaurants and other wonderful shopping destinations. 

It's special for more than just its shopping, as the building itself dates back to the 1890s and has since been restored and rejuvenated, making it a beautiful homage to days gone by. 

Of particular note is the building's dome, not to mention its stained glass windows, which illuminate beautifully on the city's abundant sunny days. During the festive Christmas season the building is even more grand and spectacular, decorated to the nines with Yuletide accessories.

Head along to soak in not only the shopping, but beautiful design, history and culture, too. 

With so many great shopping destinations in the city, which do you think you'll tackle first? Hopefully, you'll have time to visit them all.
