Opened over 50 years ago, Canberra Centre, one of the city’s top malls, is a convenient stop for travelers in need of some last-minute shopping. Noted for being the very first shopping center in the area to include a parking lot, the mall was named an Australian Capital Historic Site in 1997. At this location you can visit over 300 shops, including a variety of specialty retailers. A number of popular eateries provide shoppers with a wide range of food options. After a busy day of shopping, visit the mall’s modern movie theater, featuring nine projection rooms and two premium lounges. A visit to Canberra Centre represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Canberra driving holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • Love to shop here. Great environment. Gets busy on weekends and you will love it if you like people watch like I do. Many good restaurants, brands, activities, etc. Sometimes it has too many people. Other than that you will love it over here. Lots of fun things to do for people of all ages
  • Great shopping mall. Neat and clean with a few good food malls and all the usual shops you'd expect to find. Parking is paid but reasonably priced, especially since there isn't much other parking in the area.
