Queen Victoria Building
Queen Victoria Building (QVB) was built in 1898 to celebrate Queen Victorias golden jubilee. This building is a perfect blend of historic and shopping experience. It resembles Byzantine palace perfectly with the central copper dome, glass roof, original floor tiles, and iron circular stairs. With 200 stores providing best in fashion, art, antiques, and jewelry, it promises a true shopping experience.

Just those particular features , QVB's considered as a very unique building in the city
Yes, it's a mall, and it's like putting Macy's in NYC on your tourist itinerary. I forgot how or why we ended up at the QVB in the first place. I really think we were looking for a phone, but we ended up wandering through the place.
The building is just beautiful! All the detail is amazing. I believe on the third floor is a jade carraige and a statue of, well I forget. It would make sense that it is of Queen Victoria, wouldn't it? There is also an envelope with a letter in it from Queen Elizabeth II. It was written in 1985 or 1986. It says that on a pleasant summer day in 2085 (2086?) the people of Australia should open it and read it. I was there right before Christmas so there was a tree on the main floor that went all the way up to the dome. Near by was a beautiful black iron sprial staircase that looked like it led to somewhere probably only used by maintanence.
Don't go because you need the Macy's/Harrod's/Oh my god it's shopping experience. Go to just look at the detail and architecture of this building. Don't forget though to look at it from the outside as well. The dome is gorgeous when lit up at night. I can't believe this building was almost torn down. (Oh, I only put the value at three because we didn't really do any shopping so I can't judge the stores. If however, you're only there to look at the building, it's free so that's a good value.)
The interior is actually at the very beginning of one of the ads for that foam mattress. It goes by very quickly. If it's not the QVB, then there's another building out there with the same interior.
