“Everything yoked”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

A great historical building turned into a central shopping mall with every level of shop for all purses. We went specifically for phone services, but their are many tasteful cafes and upmarket shopping opportunities too, along side some very aromatic chocolatiers.

“Beautiful Window Shopping”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Possibly the most beautiful shopping mall in the world and well worth the stroll through. Continue on to see the Town Hall and the church past the Queen Victoria statue.

“Free QVB Goodies Bag”
Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

We did this tour because it was included in the iVenture Sydney pass - on paper we probably wouldn't have spent $15 a head, however, that would have been a mistake. We thoroughly enjoyed the interesting and informative tour, that included the origins of the building, and its later development/refurbishment. The tour largely went at our pace - we were the only ones that day! As we were shown around, it gave us the opportunity to ID what shops to return to later for a closer look - however, the tour concentrates on the building and not the current residents. My wife and daughter were thrilled with the free QVB goodie bag (made by the same people who make Harrods' bags!) - well worth the $15 we didn't actually pay.
