Martin Place, paifang

This paifang, also known as a pailou, is a traditional style of Chinese architectural arch or gateway structure which was installed in Martin Place, to celebrate the Sydney Lunar New Year Festival. Behind it, along George Street, are the former Commercial Banking Company Head Office now a Burberry store and the former Bank of New South Wales Head Office now a Westpac Bank branch.


  1. Love that colorful, welcoming gate. To me, it looks both traditional and modern at the same time. Lovely photo.

  2. I was thinking that was an unusual structure to have in front of a customs house but once I read it was for the Lunar festival it made sense.

    1. Apologies, Aimz. This one was actually in Martin Place. I had copied some info from the previous post at Customs Square. These buildings are former banks.
