When planning a shopping weekend to Sydney there are a few things to consider and a number of places that you should check out. Once you’ve booked your accommodation for a hotel or one of the serviced apartments Sydney has to offer, it is time to plan where you’ll spend your weekend shopping. Here we’ve listed the must-visit shopping spots you won’t want to miss.
Pitt Street Mall- Pitt Street Mall is full of all of the major retailers and designer brands, including a huge outdoor piazza, which is often host to a number of entertaining buskers.

You could easily spend a day in Pitt Street visiting the many shops and malls that are located in the area.

There are some great Australian designers located here, as well as one off boutiques and well known designer stores too.
Op-shopping- For the best op-shopping experience Sydney has to offer, Surry Hills and Darlinghurst are the places to go. Start on Crown Street and once you’ve checked out all of the stores, why not catch a bus or train to Newtown for even more op-shopping and a great selection of boutiques.
