One of Sydney's most elegant and historical shopping centres. The Queen Victoria Building (QVB) is up there with the Strand Arcade. A Malaysian company, Ipoh saved the building in the early 80's.

Today the QVB is a place of charm: to unwind, to go shopping and even to pass through on the way to an important appointment. The busiest part of the QVB would undoubtedly be the lower ground level connecting busy Town Hall Station. On this floor there is a personalised bank, yet all of your essentials can be found here with a hip and happening news-agency and pharmacy. Glasshouse Fragrances have set up a corner store, and hence always seem to be burning more and more of their sweet caramel candles.

A popular place to buy some jewellery, clothes and beauty products. For some bargain basement kitchenware, none other than Victoria's Basement is here.

It takes a significant amount of money on restorative works to maintain the charm and heritage that is the Queen Victoria Building. Elegant chocolate shops such as Haigh's and Bon Bon have made themselves home in a fitting locale. Adriano Zumbo seems to shine here too.

Love the Swarovski Christmas Tree that comes out at that time of year, and hence easily and magically becomes a photo hot spot. Then again, this whole space is.

You definitely feel prosperous shopping here, and the second floor has a fair few kid-friendly stores such as the elegant Just White and Hobbyco.

Furthermore, if you find yourself a real bargain hunter, rest assured - many of the stores have sales on at sale time. Oroton is also in the process of receiving a facelift, as at the time of writing this.

Spend a good few hours here, and that includes sitting down and having something to eat and/or drink elegantly and in civilisation. Long lunches most welcome.
