This gem of a find is tucked in the basement of the iconic QVB. It is going into an Aladdin’s cave of baking and cooking paraphernalia at bargain prices. There are gadgets galore for the serious and the occasional kitchen people. Lovely to browse and...More

And I am now the proud owner of Australian birds' crockery as a result of my visit here. The prices were bargain basement and the service was cheerful and positive. What was not to like?

I confess - I love a bargain. Why pay more elsewhere for a product when you can pay less at Victoria's Basement for exactly the same thing? Beats me. I've shopped at Victoria's Basement for years and I'm still using most, if not all the...More

Amazing stock and service; fast delivery; best prices anywhere. It's all exactly the same current stock that you find at other retail outlets, except that it is almost always much less than what the others are selling at.

Hidden below ground level in the stately QVB building is this treasure. It offers good quality housewares at most affordable prices. The variety is huge and the staff most helpful. Ideal place to get cookware utensils and anything other than larger electrical appliances that you...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
