this beautifully restored building is a must see when visiting sydney. Packed with specialty shops, food hall and even its own train station. Situated right in the heart of the city. Make sure you go next door to the Sydney town hall another historic attraction.

With good shops, nice cafes and a nice atmosphere. Not your usual shopping centre. Located above Town Hall station is another benefit.

A nice and old, well maintain english building, with many stores. Kind of expensive but hte most interesting part aside from the vitreaux, is the QVB sub terrain shops.

We love this historic complex, great for window shopping and plenty of choices for coffee or tea. If you are looking for a special gift you would most likely find it here from antiques, leather, clothing, toys and in the basement we found a great factory outlet selling china and other kitchen items at bargain prices. Make time for a... More

If you are looking for gifts such as towels or opals head upstairs to the top floor and work your way down. Also look in the ABC store for some great books. If you are hungy, go to the bottom level and grab a snack.

We visited the Queen Victoria Building on a recent trip to Sydney when the very popular Swarovski Crystal Christmas Tree was on display, and it was a spectacular sight. There is a nice selection of up-market boutiques on the various floors, plus various eateries. There are public toilets on the upper floor of the building on the Town Hall end,... More

Ideal place to shop if you get paid in bags of gold coins. Top end shops with top end prices. Stained glass and building design are worth a look.

This building is a marvel. Built in it's hey day and still standing. It's historical and has many historical little shops and eateries, and is a sydney icon. Do take the time to walk up the stairs and go up to the higher levels. The stairs have been very well worn, and I swear if you stop and listen you... More

The Queen Victoria Building located on George Street, Sydney is breathtakingly beautiful. This up market shopping centre is located on 4 floors around a central atrium. With ornate clocks and fittings this is a beautifully preserved building from Sydney of the 1800s. There are shops, restaurants and even a real old fashioned lift and when we visited a giant Christmas... More
