Top ways to experience Queen Victoria Building (QVB)
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

Historic building.
May 2021 • Solo
Located on George Street the Queen Victoria Building is one of the recognisable buildings in the CBD. This is a shopping and dining experience with high end retailers and fancy places to eat. There is an entrance to the Sydney Metro on the lower ground level.

Elegant with historical abundance

I love the QVB, it's the closest feeling I get to when I'm overseas in Europe or UK. The building is such a historical monument and the selection of boutiques are of equal class .
A classy place for high Tea that creates the perfect ambience suitable for opulent taste.
I love this centre. 💖

Queen Victoria Building

The Queen Victoria Building (QVB) was built 1893-1898 and is on the State heritage Register. It is a Romanesque Revival Building and is 98 feet wide and 620 feet long. It fills a whole city block. It has been restored as suffered decay and has five levels of shops and beautiful architecture. On level 2 is the Art of Dr Suess. There is also a statue of Islay Queen Victoria's dog outside the building. It is owned by Sydney City council.

A really historical looking building with modern shops within it’s walls but still has an old arcade type feel. Great space!

Magnificent
Jan 2021
We paid a brief visit to this magnificent 19th-century building. It has not lost any of its charm. It is one of the most gorgeous buildings in Sydney. It is a huge shopping centre but the feel is that of an opulent palace. There are many shops inside, ranging from cafes to jewllery stores, to fashion and wi fi and electrical and a multitude of others.

Lovely sandstone architecture, shopping
Dec 2020 • Solo
Lovely sandstone building with a variety of shops and eateries. There is a giant Christmas tree in December.
Go right up to the top floor to see the decorated clock. Its the perfect setting for high tea - the Tea Room is the best spot for this. Underground will take you to Pitt st Mall in one direction and the train station in the other
