Quaint place

Not listed as a must-see, but it is a lovely place with nice architectures and beautiful flowers adoring the streets. I like it. Simple and just simply lovely.

Most visitors and locals tend to use this mall as a means to be/get somewhere else. However surrounded by a collection of architecturally beautiful buildings, ranging from neo-classical to contemporary styles. This is quite a nice place to sit and enjoy the surroundings watching the world be somewhere else.

A great breakfast of collaboration , learning, inspiration by a group of 30 business owners and leaders meeting with a spirit of generosity - adding value to each other in ways that one would never have been expected . An eclectic mix of Gen Ys and Greys - collaborating - made the 3 hours feel like 5 minutes!

We happened upon this space when out walking on our last day in Sydney, attracted initially by a young man playing the violin. I imagine that it's probably a very different place during the week, but it was quite tranquil at the weekend. Well worth a visit, if only to see the buildings and the war memorial.

Apart from the odd event here this area is a wasted oppprtunity. Its grey and dull and usually dirty. Some green space would be a huge improvement. The skatebaorders are a constant blight on the area.

We passed through during a walking tour and it was fun to stand behind the window of the tv station. It was surreal to be at the Lindt cafe where the terrible siege took place. Lindt cafe was quite pricey so we didn't stay. Certainly don't plan your day around this.

Martin Place is a great spot to relax and just people watch. It's an easy walk up from Wynyard Station up Martin Place to the Domain and Botanical Gardens. Lots of places to eat nearby. The beautiful old GPO building which is now a hotel is right next to the Cenotaph. Walk around and look at the fountains, building and... More

Forget about PItt or George street! Martin Place is yet another place in the heart of Sydney CBD may not be as popular as the former but full of bustling activities. It has a long stretch of walkway that interconnects to every part of the city and surrounding places (i.e. the State Library, Parliament House, The Wild Bore Fountain of... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
