    Harbourside: Shopping at Darling Harbour

    by clueless83 Updated Apr 18, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you fancy doing a spot of shopping in Sydney then you can't go wrong with Harbourside. Located in the picturesque Darling Harbour its easy to spend a couple of hours here before or after visiting one of the many cafes or restaurants or even the zoo, aquarium, chinese gardens or imax theatre!

    What to buy: I can't remember any of the shop names but this is a good place to find clothes and souvenirs.

    In one shop I bought a funky hippy traveller scarf for just $10 and my boyfriend bought a hoody (it was a shop near some escalators and had mens clothes on the left and womens clothes on the right).

    We bought some photo frames and digeridoos in one of the gift shops near the entrance and magnetic bracelets in another gift shop near the entrance.

    What to pay: How long is a piece of string? My scarf was a bargain $10 but you can spend alot more (or alot less) here.

    Harbourfront: Darling Harbour Mall

    This is quite a big mall and you will find something for everyone. There are quite a few souvenir shops and also some shops that sell didgeridoos with art by aboriginals. They will get paid when one of their artworks are sold. I always recommend buying at those places rather than some random souvenir shop.

    Beside souvenir shops you can find a lot of nation wide stores here with big and some smaller brands of clothes and quite a few food places.

    Harbourside: Harbourside

    This is a fairly new mall that was built as part of renovation of Darling Harbour, and made to be one of its cornerpieces. It is a largish shopping center, full of swanky shops and cafes just on the other side of the footbridge from the city. Could be a nice place to spend some time if you like to shop. Some of the cafes on the outside of Harbourside have some nice views of the water and Sydney's dramatic skyline just beyond.

    What to buy: Whatever you want.

    What to pay: Whatever they charge.
