Queen Victoria Building

Historical landmark
1 km away
The Queen Victoria Building, now affectionately known as the QVB, was designed by George McRae and completed in 1898, replacing the original Sydney markets on the site. Built as a monument to the long reigning monarch, construction took place in dire times, as Sydney was in a severe recession. The elaborate Romanesque architecture was specially planned for the grand building so the Government could employ many out-of-work craftsmen - stonemasons, plasterers, and stained window artists - in a worthwhile project. Originally, a concert hall, coffee shops, offices, showrooms, warehouses and a wide variety of tradespeople, such as tailors, mercers, hairdressers and florists, were accommodated.

Rich with multi-layered history, Barangaroo is a dynamic retail, cultural and financial hub, with more than 50 per cent of the precinct offering extraordinary public spaces for everyone to enjoy. Nestled between the natural beauty of Sydney Harbour and the bustling global city of Sydney, the 22-hectare, $6+ billion development is a showcase of international design excellence, leading technologies, world-class sustainability, public art and cultural programs. At the northern end, Barangaroo Reserve is a six-hectare re-created Sydney Harbour headland. It offers an entirely Australian native garden, spectacular views, extensive walking and cycling trails, idyllic harbour coves, unique event spaces and peaceful picnic spots. In contrast, the southern end is a foodies’ paradise, only a few minutes’ walk from Wynyard Station. There are more than 30 restaurants and bars in this specially curated dining precinct. The laneways of Barangaroo are where contemporary architecture and the corporate world comfortably collide with the area’s maritime and industrial history. Between Barangaroo Reserve and the laneways in the south is the Central Barangaroo project area. The successful bidder for the construction of Central Barangaroo was announced in January 2018. This area’s civic and cultural contribution is intended to be the beating heart of Barangaroo. Once complete, more than half of Barangaroo will be dedicated public space encompassing a 2km continuous harbour promenade, expansive parklands and outdoor entertainment areas, extraordinary public art and cultural programming.

Sydney Tower is known by many different names, including Centrepoint Tower, AMP Tower, Westfield Tower, but regardless of what it is known as, Sydney Tower has been an iconic part of the famous Sydney skyline for over 30 years, since it was completed in 1981. Sydney Tower is 309 metres tall, making it not only the tallest building in Sydney but the second tallest observation tower in the southern hemisphere. It once was the tallest building in Australia for over 20 years, until the Q1 in the Gold Coast, Queensland overtook it in 2005, standing at 322 meters tall. However, Sydney Tower has been built to withstand earthquakes and extreme wind conditions, making it one of the safest buildings in the world.
