What to expect

There are many fabulous shopping malls in the city centre, all with distinct personalities, but possibly the most exclusive is the Queen Victoria Building - affectionately known to locals as QVB. It has been lauded as the most beautiful shopping centre in the world by none other than Pierre Cardin, a man who knows a thing or two about good design! Much like Covent Garden in London, QVB started life as a market. When you walk through the doors today and see how beautiful this building is, you won't believe horses once trotted through here. Now it's a Mecca for shoppers, with over 190 shops and boutiques.

Things to look out for

Experience the history and grandeur of the Queen Victoria Building with a guided tour. Learn about the fascinating history of the building from design and conception, through its life as Sydney Markets, its refurbishments and life today as a bustling shopping centre. Admire the gorgeous architecture featured throughout the building with the majestic central dome, glorious stained glass windows and clocks as your major highlights.
