Convenient location, good shops and cafes, with a fantastic food court in the basement. Nice simple place for those in the central business district (CBD). Some of the venues have seating in the internal atrium so you can enjoy the architectural views.

This building has been well maintained over the years and I'm always impressed each time I visit Sydney. There are plenty of shops to choose from inside, although don't expect to find too many bargains!

The building itself was amazing. The clocks were beautiful and the woodwork was stunning but the shopping...not a fan.

If you want the feel good and excitement of shopping in the Sydney CBD then the Queen Victoria building has it all. A great range of shops, services and food, vibrant, exciting and a beautiful building as well, I loved this place.
