Strand Arcade, Sydney: 5 reviews and 21 photos

The Strand Arcade is a Victorian styled building that was opened in 1892. At the time the building was heralded as "The finest public thoroughfare in the Australian colonies." In 1992 it had a major restoration that makes the building look as good as the day it was built.

The Strand Arcade today is still a shopping area and continues to receive many visitors to its shops. There are many shops inside the Strand from electronics, chocolates, clothing, jewelery and more. It is always an adventure walking through and seeing everything since the architecture is still impressive today. The building does look a bit out of place in the bustle of modern Sydney and some modern architecture surrounding the Strand Arcade.
