Taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH1 point & shoot. in October 2010. Processed in Simply HDR for Mac.

The historic Queen Victoria Building in Sydney contains two mechanical clocks. This is the Great Australian Clock, designed and made by Chris Cook, which 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.

The Queen Victoria Building is an outstanding example of the grand retail buildings from the Victorian-Federation era in Australia, which has no known equal in Australia in its architectural style, scale, level of detailing and craftsmanship. Saved from demolition in the 1980s, and restored to its original glory, the Queen Victoria Building is an iconic State heritage listed building of Sydney and Australia.
