An evolving town centre

Positioned in one of Victoria’s strongest growth corridors, Watergardens serves the needs of an ambitious and rapidly growing community.

Occupying the central portion of a developable site equivalent in size to a third of the Melbourne CBD, the centre is ideally positioned to evolve into a major civic and commercial hub for the outer western suburbs over the coming decades.

By anticipating how people visit, where they meet and why they stay, Watergardens seeks to set a new standard in successful living for the young, family-oriented households of Taylors Lakes and surrounds.

Centre snapshot

A community hub

From talent shows and local art to walking groups, bowling and coffee mornings, the centre offers a range of events and initiatives that promote community connection and enable locals to thrive.

Epicentre for the west

Located 25km north-west of Melbourne's CBD in the heart of Taylor's Lakes, the centre offers abundant parking and is easily accessed via the Melton Hwy and Watergardens Railway Station.

A place for family

Along with a range of family entertainment venues and communal spaces, Watergardens supports busy parents with school holiday events, complimentary play care and a kids' club. 

Where flavours abound

From traditional wood-fired pizzerias to European-inspired dessert bars, the centre offers a range of cafes, casual lunch spots, family dining options and everyday food retail.

The Marketplace interior

Inspired by the famed produce markets of Melbourne and the rich cultural diversity of the local area, The Marketplace is a vibrant new indoor-outdoor space that introduces a range of new-to-area dining and food retail offers.

This $50m redevelopment comprises:

  • 5000m2 of transformed retail space with an open-air feel;
  • the area's first Aldi supermarket and a 40m2 children's playground;
  • fresh food purveyors, casual dining operators and essential services;
  • plentiful seating in a range of indoor-outdoor communal spaces.

    The Marketplace marks the first phase of Wategrardens' proposed multi-stage evolution into a culturally relevant microcity. QICGRE will next undertake an aesthetic upgrade of the centre's entertainment offering, with a new 86-room Quest aparthotel also due to open on the site in 2021.
