One of the most beautiful palace in Sydney. Located downtown and full of shops and restaurants. Very nice place. I've been there in August 2010.

The place is near Sydney Town Hall, I think it just across Sydney Town Hall and there is a statue of Queen Victoria in front of it, I guess. And then after I come in, wow..the building is old and there are many luxury shops in there, the interior is vintage!! Must go there!!

Beautiful building, nicely restored, high end shops, really a must see at least once. And once there check out the unique clock in the north hall, I have never seen anything like it.

Lots of small luxury boutiques in an amazing building, nothing to buy for me as the brands are pretty pricy but still nice to visit. The building from the inside remembered me of milanos boutiques and architecture.

Lovely place to visit. It's like stepping back in time but with modern shops. The architecture is amazing. Really easy to get to from Town Hall Station

Located in the heart of Sydney's CBD,the Queen Victoria Building (QVB) has had a chequered past. It has been a parking station , a City Library, a warehouse, none of which were the original intentions for this gracious old building. Then along came a wealthy Asian investor who transformed the bones into what it has become today: a multi-level upmarket... More

No matter how often we are in Sydney we quite often find ourselves wandering through the qvb... All the shops and cafes have something to offer for all ages and some times we've seen some famous faces shopping with their families'!!! The clock in the centre is always a winner with everyone...
