455 George Street,

The Queen Victoria Building is renowned for its romantic architecture which can be contrasted with the contemporary buildings which surround it in the centre of Sydney. This shopping centre was built in 1898 to replace the Sydney markets and the building which houses the mall was originally used as a concert hall, library and town offices by Queen Victoria.

There are currently 200 shops in the mall where you will find whatever you are looking for, and even if you don’t like shopping you should go to the Queen Victoria Building just to see its beautiful architecture. There are even guided tours available.

The most significant feature within the building is the large central dome which is surrounded by a number of small domes. There are also permanent and temporary exhibitions which include replicas of the British Crown Jewels, an oriental car, paintings and the royal clock.
