The "Queen Vic" was opened in 1878, but the meat market building has been in operation since 1866.
On Wednesday nights from November to January there is entertainment, bars, food outlets, arts and crafts, masseurs, camel rides, tarot card readers and crystal ball readers. It is a real bazaar.
To get here catch any tram riding north on Elizabeth or William Street.

Favorite thing: visit the Queen Victoria Market, just to the north of the city centre on Elizabeth Street. It's been a market since 1878, so it's a historic landmark in Australian terms, and it's definitely worth a visit! It's mainly open in the mornings and is closed on Mondays and Wednesdays. Lots more information is available from the official website.
