The interior opens with the light filled feel of a winter garden, amazing both on a sunny and wintery day, there are eateries and cafes to choose from, also for those that like things that glitter Caleija jewellers is the place to visit...

The GPO Grand is a nice addition to Martin Place and a good use of a beautiful old building. The Westin Hotel uses the majority of the interior and has redeveloped the site with a fantastic skylight. A number of restaurants, both dine in and take away adds to the experience.

Our group of friends, including a vegetarian, were looking for dinner after drinks at Ryan's Bar in Australia Square and decided on this pizza parkour at Martin Place. The old GPO is now The Westin Hotel and houses several restaurants on the lower floor. We ordered pizzas to share with a good Pinot Noir. The venue was pretty full with... More

This building is quite distinctive - even when there is all the construction around the place, one will notice this grand place.

A wonderful old building with great architecture - situated in the heart of the city, it has been functionally remodelled to incorporate a hotel, upmarket stores and a few restaurants and cafes.

Originally the headquarters of the Australian Post Office System, the GPO is a magnificent structure, certainly the most important and largest structure when it was built. Now a small post office is still located on the Pitt St. side I think, but the major occupant is a Westin Hotel. Also restaurants adorn the perimeter of the building on the Martin... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
