Stores and featuresEdit

Extensive refurbishments commenced in 2003[citation needed] have taken several years to complete. The centre incorporates several key retail outlets: including department stores the three-floor Myer, Big W, Kmart, and Target as well as supermarket chains Woolworths Supermarkets, Coles Supermarkets and Aldi (replacing Franklins). The refurbishment incorporated an entertainment precinct, which incorporates a Hoyts 10 screen cinema, bowling alley and a video arcade. There is also an outdoor dining precinct and speciality stores.


The refurbishment was to be undertaken by Baulderstone Hornibrook Pty Ltd (BHPL). However BHPL and QIC became embroiled in legal proceedings regarding the payment of outstanding progress payments which BHPL claimed were owing to it. This court proceeding delayed construction. In October 2006, QIC terminated the contract with BHPL.[2]

Car Park and transportEdit

The centre incorporates a large multi-level car park however as of October 2018, presently half of the car park remains closed until further notice due to issues with structural integrity. Repair work commenced in early 2019. There is a taxi rank on level four. There is an underground bus station which provides a direct connection by bus services to surrounding suburbs. The main entrance on Level 3 is within short walking distance to Blacktown railway station and nearby alternate taxi ranks.
