  • The Canberra Centre is well run, clean and warm and with all lights and fixtures functioning. Sprawling across several buildings, the touch screen guide maps with path display are vital to find specific stores. The variety of stores is excellent.
  • As far as shopping centres go it's pretty good. Parking, while not cheap, isn't outrageously expensive. There is a good range of stores as well as entertainment and food options. There is something here for the very young to the very old.
  • I love Canberra Outlet Centre but my husband doesn't. Apparently he can't retire because he has to earn the money for me to spend at COC. There is a great selection of shops here, a really good food court and some bargains to be found.
  • Its very good shopping center with all australias big brands. Very neat and clean. Love the place.
  • Great place to shop or dine. This place has just about everything you need except accomodation which you need to check out Riverview Homestead for that. Relax with nature in country comfort.
