The retail heart of Australia's capital

Canberra Centre is the capital’s home of fashion, dining and lifestyle – a place where the finest local and global brands are showcased and where the city’s unique culture finds its full expression.

From its beginnings as Monaro Mall, Canberra Centre has set the benchmark for innovation in architecture and style.

A landmark development built in Australia’s capital city in 1963, the centre formed part of American architect Walter Burley Griffin’s original plan for the city and introduced a new concept to Australian retail in the 1960s as the first fully enclosed and air-conditioned shopping mall.

In recent times, Canberra Centre has welcomed new specialised lifestyle and beauty precincts to Monaro Mall and continues to maintain its role as a vital retail and lifestyle destination at the heart of Canberra’s civic centre.
