“A large shopping centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

The Canberra Centre is a very large shopping centre including both upmarket and discount stores for example David Jones, Myer and Big W. Dendy cinemas is also in this centre as well as many restaurants and a couple of food courts. You always have to pay for parking at this shopping centre which is the downside.

“Just another mall.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

Canberra is a weird layout, mostly due to it's full "design" concept. Shopping is in the north central quad of the city, miles away from the admin area, and the funky restaurant neighbourhoods. Stores are pretty much NA mainstream in the Centre. A good idea at the time, but already dated thru non-use and lack of residential anywhere near the mall.

“Dullest Centre you can find”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

I don't mean to insult Australia, but coming from beautiful Sydney, the (shopping)centre of Canberra is incredibly dull and sad! Even the small skating oval couldn't cheer us up. We wanted to drink a cup of coffee. In the end we found (hidden away) a good one (name forgotten). Being very crowded probably the only decent one?

“A good bunch of retail stores under a single roof”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

I just move around the shopping centre and found most the OZ outlets in there; So, if anyone needs for a quick shop - I assume this is the right place in canberra. Found the town's most happening place is around here as well; so tourist staying in CBD can get easy access for shopping, food court and other's happening places.
