“A wonderful sens of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

To think that they nearly pulled it down for a carpack a few decades ago.
This is Sydney CBD at its best - heart of the city with the most beautiful architecture.
The retail outlets wwould prefer that I do more shopping here but I just enjoy the building.
I often park here when I visit the city and this puts you in the heart of the city.

“Beautiful QVB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

Gorgeous shopping centre in a beautifully restored historic building. Prices and quality of shopping increases floor by floor with stunning boutiques on the top floor. The centre clock is exquisite and if are visiting around Christmas time it is just magical. Food courts on the ground floor and delightful coffee shops throughout.

This is a lovely shopping area in a refurbished Victorian era building. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants, clothes shops etc as well as an antique clock which chimes on the hour.
