We walked the 2 miles to the Queen Victoria Building to do some shopping. All the stores were small boutiques and would negotiate the price. We ate at Cellini’s and Rebecca was a wonderful waitress!

Inside and outside are amazing. Many shops, restaurants, views, history inside. Rail stops inside, so easy access

... this is a great place to stroll and people watch. There are lots of shops on three different levels, many of which you'd find anywhere. But that this is an older building, it's great to see how it's been preserved and re-purposed.

We saw the Queen Victoria Building posted in several Sydney guides as a beautiful sightseeing destination shopping area. The architecture of this building is absolutely stunning. However, it is completely full of high end stores, so everything was out of our price range. Nice to...More

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
