Canberra Centre, Canberra

3.5
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.
