*'''Queen Victoria Building''' [http://www.qvb.com.au/]in the [[Sydney/City Centre|City Centre]] is a renowned, beautifully maintained, 19th century sandstone building, home to over 400 stores. The stores in the building are laid out in a hierarchical style- literally. The basement level has cheap, casual-fashion stores with a food court, the street level mid-range brand-name chains and level 3 is where various Australian designers, some European labels and Italian shoe stores are located. It is one of Sydney's more photogenic pieces of architecture. Located on George St adjacent to Town Halland Pitt St Mall.

Both offer your standard department-store range of goods.

It is one block long between Market Street and King Street and is one of Australia's busiest and most cosmopolitan shopping precincts.
