Queen Victoria Building (QVB)
This gorgeous heritage building is worth a visit for the beauty of the architecture alone. Marble floors and stained-glass windows adorn this grand structure, but the standout feature is the cage elevators with ornate wrought-iron handles. The QVB has been standing since 1898, and today, it plays host to a lively and central shopping district. Stop for something sweet from Haigh’s Chocolates, and then peruse the upmarket clothing boutiques.
