We recognise the critical importance of physical distancing. To help our customers maintain the recommended 1.5 metre physical distancing while in our centres, we have closed kids’ play areas in some states, are working with our retailers to provide appropriate space for customer queues and have implemented signage at gathering points, including at our vertical transport locations, entry/exits and car parks, for guidance around effective social distancing in these areas.
Our retailers are also expected to have signs that clearly display how many patrons they can accommodate in their space, given the restrictions.
Your wellbeing is our priority

Westfield car parks are open. Controlled parking has started to be reinstated in all regions excluding Victoria to ensure that our customers can access parking as quickly and as easily as possible when they visit. For updates on parking, please visit your local centre website.
Thank you for your support.
We apply the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene across our Westfield Centres. We have increased the routine cleaning of frequently-touched hard surfaces, including in car parks. We expect our retail partners to apply the same principles to their cleanliness and hygiene.
If a retail partner becomes aware of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 within their customer facing teams in our centres, they must contact their local Westfield centre management immediately. We would then work with our retail partner and the relevant health authority to support any required public communication and advice on deep cleaning.
We remind all customers to practice regular hand washing, use hand sanitiser and cover sneezes or coughs with your arm, not your hands. Single use hand sanitiser is available at the Concierge desks and other locations around our centres.
The NSW Government has provided health guidance on the use of face coverings. It is recommended individuals wear a face covering when it is hard to maintain 1.5 metres physical distance from others, for example, when using public transport, in customer facing roles such as hospitality or when shopping.
If you have flu-like symptoms, you should seek your doctor’s advice. If you have returned from overseas effective 16 March 2020, you are required to self-isolate. You should not visit a Westfield centre during this period.
