#2 Skygarden, Sydney
This shopping complex is located within the most famous shopping street in Sydney, Pitt Street in the central business district of the city. We recommend this mall in particular because there is everything for everyone – from small local stores and affordable brands to high-end international fashion ranges. You can even purchase diamonds and custom made golden pieces. When you get exhausted of roaming around you can chill out in a stunning rooftop bar with an open space, this mall is also famous for.
All of the world's leading fashion and clothing brands under one roof. The layout of this mall is split into different buildings, and each one has multiple floors, so it would be a good idea getting a map before you head to shopping. The western part is mostly occupied by the department store Myer. The eastern portion houses many boutique shops. Floors 3 and 4 are dedicated to all higher end stores. We also recommend visiting this shopping centre because it is home to one of the main attractions in Sydney which is the Sydney Tower and its observatory, Sydney Tower Eye with views of Darling Harbour, Hyde Park and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Useful info for all the travelers - shopping malls in Sydney are one of the best places to find free internet connection and Westfield offers free Wi-Fi for 3 hours each day.
Maribyrnong’s Highpoint is famous for bringing many retailers and brands to Melbourne’s west. Many call it a world class shopping destination featuring more than 500 stores. This centre offers plenty of australian fashion labels including Sass & Bide, Gorman and Alannah Hill. What makes it stand out are special parents rooms equipped with facilities for changing the babies, as well as play areas, private feeding rooms, high chairs and TVs.
Eastland Shopping Centre is a large shopping centre located in the outer eastern suburb of Ringwood in Melbourne. The centre features two main levels of shops, with a 3rd level containing a Hoyts 12 screen cinema complex and restaurants, forming a total of approximately 235 stores.
