See the QVB

Grand on the outside, glitzed-out on the inside, the Queen Victoria Building--aka the QVB--is among Sydney's most recognizable historical buildings. The spectacular Romanesque-style monument opened in 1898, during the depths of recession, as a marketplace and concert hall. As with many a long-standing landmark, the QVB had its up years and its down ones, but recent decades have seen millions of dollars go to its meticulous restoration as an epic shopping center.

Loads of stores and restaurants ensure around-the-clock bustle at the QVB, worth visiting alone for up-close views of the Victorian-era architecture.
