the tearoom – Queen Victoria Building

There is nothing quite like having High Tea and we resolved, prior to going to Sydney, that we would endeavour to have High Tea on the afternoon prior to me flying home to Darwin.

On the top level of the Queen Victoria Building in the city is the tearoom.  Situated in the original Grand Ballroom, the tearoom is one of Sydney’s premier dining establishments and function venues.

There were many older ladies of the Sydney scene meeting up or dining on their own, the day we went and it was amazing to sit back and soak up the atmosphere and the ambiance.  The ceiling is a work of art – white on white detail of the original ornate ceiling towering 30 feet above spectacular 1920’s art deco chandeliers.

The afternoon tea hit the spot along with the champagne and sticky whites that we enjoyed.  Everything was just so old fashioned, right down to the cutlery, crockery and tiered serving plates.

Now that I think of it – it is a good way to unwind after doing a spot of shopping in the QVB Building.
