From enchanting markets exploding with bargains to the world's most exclusive brands, Sydney has something to tempt every shopper. The city's busy shopping arcades are within walking distance from one another. Cosmopolitan Pitt Street Mall is home to arcades filled with superb gifts, fashion and food, as well as friendly staff. The Strand Arcade accommodates the stylish Glasshouse and Skygarden complexes. Queen Victoria Building spreads over four wonderful floors and is the jewel in the Sydney shopping crowns. It houses over 200 specialty stores and many restaurants and cafes.

David Jones in Elizabeth Street is well known for its spring and Mother's Day floral displays as well as the luxurious perfumery and cosmetics. Grace Bros is a good venue for cosmetics, hats, Australian fashion, lingerie and hosiery while Gowings carries a large range of quality menswear, sunglasses, watches, and Swiss army knives.

Duty-free shops are found in the center of the city as well as at Kingsford Smith Airport. Some shops also have branches in the larger suburbs. Overseas visitors will need proper identification such as the presentation of a valid passport in order to purchase these types of goods. For more cheerful and colorful shopping, check out Balmain Market, which is held each Saturday. A food hall selling Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and Indian dishes forms part of the market. The Beach Bondi Market is well known for its second-hand clothing as well as its cactus plants, glassware, and tourist art. The Rocks Market, held every weekend under a canopy, has up to 140 participating stalls selling posters, lace, stained glass, and leather goods.
