I love this building and you really can see some great aspects of yesteryear, but be sure to look carefully at the fine detail also that can sometimes be lost through the glitz and glamour of fancy stores. The facade work, the tiles, the metal work and the grand staircase and it's stained glass windows.
This is a lovely place to see and do some shopping and plenty of Australian art and souvenir stores if your not from Australia. Well worth the visit.

Since we were staying at the Grace Hotel, we would come to the QVB for coffee and free wi-fi in the mornings. This building is stunning and full of very high end retail chains as well as small local boutiques.
