One last image from Sydney. This is the 'view' from our hotel room at night - just across the road from Westfield Miranda (thank goodness for blockout curtains!).
With nearly 400 shops, this centre is the largest in the southern part of Sydney, and in 2010 turned over $723.6 million. There are approximately 13.4 million visits to this shopping centre each year - with 7 day trading, that's over 37,000 people a day through the doors. No wonder it seemed really crowded!
