The Great Australian Clock hangs from the glass ceiling of the Queen Victoria Building. This animated clock was designed and made by Chris Cook and features 138 figures and 33 scenes from Australian history seen from both Aboriginal and European perspectives. An Aboriginal hunter and a sailing ship circle the exterior of the clock continuously, representing the never-ending passage of time. The Queen Victoria Building was designed by George McRae and completed in 1898 in the Romanesque architectural style. It was restored in 1986 and now houses retail shops, cafés, and restaurants.
