This is an iconic building you do not want to miss. Shopping here is good too. Check out the basement for discounted home ware. Interesting!!

I've been to Sydney three times this year, and always visit the Queen Victoria Building. It is handy to anyone staying in the CBD - because Town Hall station (underground) exits directly onto the Lower Ground floor of the QVB. There are many low-cost eating places, and further up the levels of the building, there are some lovely cafes and... More

A magnificent 19th century shopping arcade, with stunning art glass, ironwork, tiles, clocks and other decorative details. Go and gawk.

Like a journey back in time to the old covered 'arcades' in Victorian England (where they banned whistling because it was a way for pickpocket gangs to communicate and exemplified in Dickens' 'Oliver Twist'). Beautiful, air-conditioned and full of shops, as one would assume from a shopping centre, but from someone who hates shops and shopping, it's still worth a... More

QVB in Sydney is a must-visit when in the city. There's hundreds of shops, specialising in fashion, food, art, electronics and much more! If you're not interesting in buying things, even just walking inside the building is enjoyable. It's also in the heart of Sydney CBD, which means it's easily accessible by trains and buses. Highly recommended for everyone whenever... More

Cant miss it, such a great building and fantastic shops, you can easily spend an entire day in the complex, l always visit each time l go to Sydney. If you like antiquity then this place is must see, the inner building is spectacular.
