“Loved this Shopping Centre :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

I know this is going sound weird but this was one of the highlights of my trip.....I know call me crazy but I managed to get a couple of hours to myself (not easy being a Mum) and headed off to the Canberra Centre. Heaven!! great shops including ZARA, Aesops, Honey Birdette and lots of other specialty shops. Clean and modern and with all the heat it was nice to be in A/C. Enjoyed very much.

“Best Shopping in Canberra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Everything is here with plenty of parking and wide spacious shopping, even when it is crowded it doesn't feel busy. The food court downstairs has had a revamp and caters for everyone. Must try the Vietnamese pork buns from the shop in the middle of the food court.

It covers a few city blocks.
Large clean centre on two levels.
It has all the main stores and supermarkets.
Good choice food court. Cafes & coffee shops scattered around.
Store directory displays are available and helpful.
Lots of parking. Always note where you park. Observe the shops etc as you enter the centre.
Nice place to browse and lunch.
Walking distance from many offices.
Bus interchange is a short walk away. Some buses stop at the centre.

“Boring - just another mall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Rarely come into the centre - had a crisis , my Apple iPhone charger stopped working and had to leave a meeting to have it fixed. Got to their location in the Centre and just thought "Is this it?"
Other than an emergency, most of the suburbs probably offer more.
