A stunning iconic building inside and out, no trip to Sydney is complete withoit seeing the QVB. Try the asian food downstairs in the basement too!

Once the premier shopping centre in the CBD, renovated in the 80s, but probably a little past its heyday due to its proximity to (and as a thoroughfare for) the somewhat seedy Town Hall station. Still an architectural gem, though.

QVB is a very beautiful, stylish, old-world style and elegant shopping arcade. There are many shops and many cafes and small restaurants. The atmosphere will take you back in time. So go back in time and have fun and be a Victorian shopper.

QVB now looks great from the outside; I can remember when it was grimy from pollution and disused. It is pleasing to see such a great building restored and utilized well. Several levels of interesting shops to please almost everyone and a variety of restaurants...More

Upscale retail with plenty of coffee and tea shops. It’s a pretty building to walk through. This should be shopped on your wa to somewhere else.

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
