We thoroughly enjoyed touring the QVB on our own. They already had it decorated for Christmas, so it was extra special. Class from days gone by.

This historic building houses many upscale stores and is a great shopping experience. An essential stop is seeing what Sydney is like.

Went to see how and where the wealthy people spend their money. Lots of upmarket top of the line shops. The Christmas Tree was up and it was worth the visit just for that.

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
