About Us

Canberra Centre is the ultimate destination for fashion and lifestyle shopping. Providing a mix of premier shopping and first class entertainment, it has gained recognition as the definitive destination for locals and visitors who enjoy the outstanding choice of quality retailers.



From our beginnings as "Monaro Mall" in the 60s, Canberra Centre has set the benchmark for innovation and style. Declared open by Sir Robert Menzies in 1963, the Centre introduced a new concept to Australian retail as the first fully enclosed shopping mall.

Over the 50 years, there's been several major renovations, including a $500 million redevelopment in 2007. In 2016 we have commenced a redevelopment in the old Monaro Mall precinct. Due for completion in 2017, this will bring more unique and specialty retailers to Canberra.

Canberra Centre is the shopping mecca we all love. Today, locals and visitors alike enjoy an inspiring culture of style and fun with over 260 national and international retailers.
