A few weeks ago I posted some photos of the QVB from the outside.
This week, here are some inside shots of the Queen Victoria Building.
I thought it was appropriate to go with a royal theme since the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and baby Prince George will be in Sydney this week.
The first three photos were taken at Christmas time. The giant Christmas tree fills the entire space leading up to the central dome. It's hard to get a photo of the whole thing.
The top floor has several cafes - it's a great place to people watch.
"Two mechanical clocks, each one featuring dioramas and moving figures from moments in history, can be seen from the adjacent railed walkways. The Royal Clock (below) activates on the hour and displays six scenes of English royalty accompanied by Jeremiah Clarke's trumpet voluntary.
The Great Australian Clock, designed and made by Chris Cook, weighs four tonnes and stands ten metres tall. It includes 33 scenes from Australian history, seen from both Aboriginal and European perspectives. An Aboriginal hunter circles the exterior of the clock continuously, representing the never-ending passage of time." (Wikipedia)
