Queen Victoria Building offers an architectural delight: an extravagantly detailed shopping center from Australia's late colonial period amidst the gleaming modernity of downtown Sydney's skyscrapers. From the outside, admire the Romanesque Revival facade that American architect Henry Hobson Richardson employed throughout the city in the last decade of the 19th century. Observe the large copper-sheathed central dome, cupolas on the corners of the roof, and columns all along the exterior walls. Inside, see stained-glass windows, arched skylights by the central dome, colonnades, and balustrades. And the shopping isn't half-bad in here either.

Queen Victoria Building Reviews
Fantastic transformation of a beautiful building to a high end shopping mall. The Christmas tree was in the process of being removed. There were many restaurants and shops. more »
I went there to buy nothing, but to see the whole building, the façade, the interior, the ceilings, everything. Also for shopaholics. more »
So beautiful to to experience. Beautiful Christmas decorations, awesome Christmas tree adorned with crystals stretches up through every level. The carol singers sound amazing, really delightful. So many delicious treats to eat and lovely gifts. Make sure you go to the QVB to enjoy the festive atmosphere.
Gorgeous, elegant piece of architecture. I love everything about this place. The selection in stores are quite good, everything you need. I also love the history behind this beautiful building. It’s legendary.
