The exterior is majestic but the interior is simply very beautiful. Even if you do not wish to shop it is worth spending atleast half an hour roaming in this building. I have to say it is very difficult to find a particular shop in the premises and we had to walk quite a bit before finding it ourselves without... More

It's a busy hub for tourists and those in transit to the city via rail. It makes for a jive of activity which is good for a solo traveler checking out the action but not so for families or those who like their space. The shops are fairly expensive and largely cater to the tourist. The food options are ok... More

came upon this by chance. What a gem! There is interesting shopping here but the building is stunning and the clocks worth seeing. Lots of people having afternoon tea. Good healthy food available

We met our relatives for a mid-morning coffee and what a surprise the building was. Well worth a walk round to do some window shopping (Unless your feeling very flush!)

A great place to shop. Set in Victorian splender over several floors, cafes for drinks and snacks.. Good for visiting if the weather is bad.

This is a fun building, crammed wirh shops. I discovered it by accident as a nicer option than the street for the region near the Town Hall Station train. The building is quite walkable, light and airy, and well laid out. All manner of shops inside. I also appreciated the good directions for whi h ecits and hallways led to... More

While in Sydney, if you're out exploring downtown area, make sure you stop here for a short visit. It's a beautiful building with gorgeous architect. The clock hanging in the middle of the building has to be the highlight along with the glass windows.

The design of QVB is a work of art, can't find a piece of architecture like it anywhere else in Sydney. Really worth the visit

Stunning building with a range of varied shops located in the heart of Sydney. Well worth a walk through and Queen Victoria's impressive statue can be found outside at one of the entrances/exits.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
