What a beautiful old building, worth to have a walk through it. Didn't have a chance to look at all the shops.

Fabulous building with lots of historical features. Love the centrepiece clock! Some great boutique shops and good (albeit overpriced) cafes and restaurants. Something to do on a rainy day.

The outlook of QVB is outstanding but as other travelers may comment things are too expensive. I personally felt that the interior is quite romantic with the old style design and light is a bit dim compared to other arcade. It is located just opposite the Sydney Town Hall and is in the heart of the CBD. There are lot... More

Too expensive for this pensioner to shop at but well worth a look from the visually stimulating aspect. There are two very unusual clocks hanging in the central gallery between the floors but it's hard to get a decent photo of them without including the huge, ugly banners advertising I know not what. The curved staircases with huge stained glass... More

The QVB looks amazing from the outside, but when you go inside you realise that it is just the same as any Old World arcade. It is located in the middle of the CBD under the shadow of the Sydney Tower, and you find lots of small cafes and shops in the QVB. Additionally, it is a focal point of... More

Even if you are not shopping it is well worth a walk through this building. Mainly upmarket shopping, but inside and out this building is a sight to see. Especially the roof area.

Still drawing in the crowd; mostly for coffee and cakes at its entrance and inside cafes. Good access walk way to Westfield shopping centre

Great place for high-end shopping and nice coffee shops, but the real draw for my family and me was the impressive architecture. From the vaulted ceilings to the mosaic floors, curved iron stairs to the intricate clocks (best seen from 3d level), this is a place to see and appreciate a fine building which has been well restored. Nice antique... More

Not only is this building beautiful but it has some great shops in it as well. We went everyday as it was close to our hotel, had some great cafes, and was interconnected to other malls.

The building is amazing. Very pretty and well cared for. We had the most delicious tea too. It is well worth the visit.
