The Queensland Building is renowned for the gigantic entry arch which is constructed of stone and features intricate carvings of flowers and fruits around its border. The Queensland Building confirms architect Walter Butler's commitment to the Arts and Crafts ideal whilst still referencing elements of classicism. The oriel bays which stretch vertically up the building frame it nicely.
The top floor of the Queensland Building has been treated separately from the floors below.
The Queensland Building was built for the Queensland Insurance Company (now QBE Insurance) as its Victorian State Headquarters.
