A spectacular, beautiful building with stained glass, curved staircases and other features. Many of the shops are boutique, and there are also some very good eating establishments.

A grand building that should be a must visit when visiting Sydney. Stop at one of the many cafes and enjoy a coffee while wandering the many shops.

This is such a beautiful building. Be sure to get a photo of the dome in the middle. There some cafes and expensives shops around the building. The bus stops just out side and only a few minute walk to westfields mall and the tower.

The QVB is a beautiful building and it is a shoppers paradise with wonderful shops, cute cafes, and great holiday decorations. We spent at least a half a day in here shopping and eating, and we wished we had more time. The holiday decorations were gorgeous too. A must see.

We even saw a wedding photo shoot in here! Always bustling and lots of interesting boutiques. There are some eating choices and this is a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. It is clean and seems well-managed.

We took metro from the camping in Sydney suburbs and this building was our first step in Sydney actually. Really amazing architecture, nice just to wonder around but expect rather high prices even for coffee.

You can catch a freebus that travels up and down George St and get off right outside this iconic late 19th century beautiful building. You can climb the stairs or ride to the third level in an old fashioned lift. On the top level is the beautiful clock with figures that move to music on the hour. Even the stylish... More
