Queen Victoria Building, Sydney

4.5
Create an itinerary including Queen Victoria Building
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. Plan my day in Sydney using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Beautiful old building with shopping, shopping and more shopping and when you’ve had enough of shopping it’s time to eat and drink in one of the many cafes. Staying right next door in the QT hotel...

  • This place is worth the visit just to see the architecture of buildings in years gone by. Lots of shops, mostly high end, with a huge array of eateries. This mall is in an older building and is beautifully set up. We went there in November and the big Christmas tree was already there. Interesting shops and nice restaurants. We stopped at one for lunch and were impressed with the food and service. Would recommend a visit if you are in sydney for more than a couple of days
  • It is a huge classic building with old fashion classy atmosphere. Here there are niche shopping , also the restaurants and cafes are amazing and good. I spend a lot of time in this building taking pictures and enjoying the cafe’s.
  • A must visit when in Sydney! One of the oldest shopping building around. Its got many different types of shops from high end to mid range stores. The interior is beautifully decorated victorian style. Parking is very expensive around the area and I suggest if you drive to book in advance your parking online at a much cheaper rate.
  • Most historic building in Town hall area, Sydney. Famous for its architectural design, high end shops (dress, ornaments, bags) and eatery along with an Australian chocolate shop. With passage of years the design of the building hasn't been faded.
  • I Miss Coming Back Here. Lovely Old Building , Gorgeous Shops, Vintage Shops. There Are So Many Restaurants And Souvenirs Around. Please Do Try The Coffeshop For Cakes And Bakery. They Are Tremendous. We Also Love The Vibes Here.
