Only got time for a couple of quickies? The Strand / 412 George St / 9265 6800 / strandarcade.com.au / has many Aussie brands not found elsewhere under one pretty Victorian arcade roof: Haigh’s Chocolates, Andrew Mcdonald (see Adv. Shop), Love & Hatred, Lover and more. Exit onto George St and spy R.M. Williams opp. (see Standout Stores). Or, take the Pitt St exit right for, god forbid, Westfield mall, hosting a heap of top Oz designers alongside int’l labels. Fill up at the sprawling global gourmet food hall on 5/F, or Sky Phoenix (see Lunch) on 6/F. Elsewise, on Market St is David Jones / 9266 5544 / davidjones.com.au / a dame of a department store with a great food hall.
