It's worth stopping by here just to admire the heritage building. THe shops are mainly high end so perhaps not really casual shopping. The place has some nice cafe's for a quick meal.

Great eclectic shopping mall with stuff crammed into it everywhere! Awesome homewares shop in the basement and plenty of things to do and see. The crowds were large as it was a Sunday but that was good.

A very unique building. It looks nice and never expect it is a shopping mall. I like the decoration of this building, wonderful. A lot of shops here and enjoy the shopping plus the cafes available here. It will be a good place for those who love to do shopping.

This large building is located on Market and George Streets. The Victorian shopping arcade is one of the most ornate in Australia with around 200 shops of all price ranges. The shops are open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with Thursday staying open until 9 p.m. Sunday hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. We were not tempted to... More

The shops are very expensive, and are mainly famous clothing brands. There is a coffee shop which was busy when I was walking past. You can walk through to Town Hall Station from the bottom of the QVB.
