A great experience going with young children to see the huge Christmas tree with 100,000 Swarovski crystals! The whole layout of the building is in keeping with its past and many Original features have been incorporated into the decor. Wonderful ambience and use of space....More

Walked in needing the toilet and stayed after seeing how impressive the building was. Many well known and unknown designer stores and boutiques, good for window shopping or actual shopping. Many cafes and restaurants for coffee and lunch as well.

Once almost derelict, the QV building has been restored and now boasts many "high end" shops. The architecture inside and out pays hommage to the Victorian era.

The QVB is a stunning building, especially when the giant Xmas tree is there. The shops are very expensive so it really depends on your tastes. The lower levels have reasonably priced stores.

This is such a beautiful building in Sydney. It does have a wide range of shopping and esting options, but I was taken by the building itself. Some of the stained glass was just magnificent. Well worth the effort.

I keep forgetting what a beautiful building this is. It is worth just a walk through the building to admire the history, attention to detail and straight out luxury, and outside to see the beautiful facade. Well worth a visit. Some lovely (non-chain) cafes inside...More

How beautiful is this building all the lovely shops etc. Worth a visit so much to see and do in one building if you do all the floors.

This is a very elegant building with many different shops and elegant cafes. The building is very royal. Some of the stores sell some unique items and good finds to enhance one's shopping experience.

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
