QVB is a must see place. Great architectural building of historic significance. Many quality shops for the keen shopper. Very central at the heart of the city.

The whole centre is currently set up for Christmas. The architecture is stunning. Everywhere you look there is a bit of stained glass or a curly little staircase. Beautiful old building.

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.

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
