Queen Victoria Building
Last Updated: 5th May 2011
The Queen Victoria Building in Sydney (known to the locals as the QVB) was a beautiful building in itself when it was completed in 1898 but it has now been transformed into a shopping arcade filled with over 200 boutiques and galleries. The building is packed with pedestrians during rush hour as people walk through the building to get to work but the small one-off shops and major chain stores fill the opulent interior and create an escape form the often hectic pace outside.
The Queen Victoria Building is on York Street in the heart of the city.
