“Excellent!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

If in Sydney make a point of visiting the Queen Victoria Building.
Catch the train to Town Hall Station and you're there.

Take your time, (lunch at Vanto's restaurant on level 1 - great food) or have a coffee at one of the little coffee shops.

Beautiful architecture offering many photo opportunities, and lovely little boutique shops.
There is a lift in the building.

“A Fantastic Restoration Trophy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Magnificently beautiful restored Victorian building housing some grta shops, fabulous cafes and is above a major CBD transport hub.

Definitely worth a visit, even if just passing through.

“Love the ambience....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

I didn't visit on this latest trip, but I nearly always go there when in Sydney, it really is a Must Do, just to wander through the architectural delight that it is.

Located in the Sydney CBD, with many lovely speciality shops, coffee bars etc. The building was beautifully restored to its original splendor about 30 years ago
