Queen Victoria Building

Shopping may be what the Queen Victoria Building (QVB) is all about today, but it wasn't so when it was built in 1898.

Inside the Queen Victoria Building

The QVB was constructed as a monument to Queen Victoria and was originally a concert hall and later a library. It was slated to be demolished in the 1950s until the local council began restoration works, which continue today. Located on George and Pitt Streets (opposite the Hilton Sydney), the QVB houses outlets including men's and ladies' fashion, gifts and souvenirs, arts and antiques, restaurants and cafés. If you have the time you could spend an entire day wandering the floors of the QVB, as many people apparently do. It is open until 6 p.m. from Monday to Wednesday, 9 p.m. on Thursday, 6 p.m. on Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday.
