“A beautiful building near the Town Hall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Leave plenty of time to visit this building as there is lots to look at. The architecture is the focus. Some boutique shops worth a visit as well.

“Beautiful old building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

The heart of city shopping! Visit at Christmas to see the giant sparkling Tree, it's beautiful! And visit the little cafe's that are dotted around the centre on the upper floors, even just for a sit down and a coffee.

“An architectural delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

For architecture buffs a building not to be missed on a vist to Sydney! If you close your eyes you can imagine the old queen coming down the road in a horse and carriage to shop in this great place. Wander through the pace and take yourself back in time!

“Fantastic restored building with lots of shops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

QVB is a great place to visit and shop and it is right on George Street at the Town Hall station. The restoration of this gem is really well done and picture worthy! There are a lot of nice high-end shops, and if you go below ground to the basement floor - which connects to the Town Hall subway stop, there are bargain shops including one of my favorites for kitchen/household items. QVB is also across the road from more shopping malls and only a few blocks from the Westfiend shopping area. Enjoy shopping and checking out the architecture, or stop for coffee at one of the zillion cafe's in Sydney. There is a food court area too.
