Canberra Centre, Canberra

3.4
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.

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
