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.

タウンホール駅の近くにあるショッピングモールです。まるで宮殿かホテルのような外観をしており、中にはたくさんの店舗が入っていて悪天候の日でものんびりとショッピングを楽しむことができるようになっています。 more »It is a shopping mall near town hall station. It looks like a palace or a hotel, with plenty of shops inside, so you can relax and enjoy shopping even in bad weather.
You have to visit this place! It is absolutely gorgeous. The heritage this building has to offer is stunning. Heaps of high end shops upstairs and good (more useful) shops at the bottom floor. A variety of cafes on the floors too.
Picturesque and spectacular. Beautiful building, old fashioned but amazing shops. The designs on walls and the building architecture is notable. I visited the place during Christmas and there were families with kids celebrating. Cheerful environment.
