4. Dine at one of our child friendly restaurants

We have many places with food your kids will love in the food court or in our dining precinct. If chicken nuggets and chips are your child’s go-to then head to Schnitz and McDonald's or if they like a sandwich, try Melt Brothers or grab a freshly rolled sushi from Sushi Hub and oi Sushi. There is something to satisfy everyone’s tastebuds. Plus, there are some great meal deals and offers at:

There are many pram and baby friendly cafes in centre, too. Pick up a babycino and a coffee with a friend while you swap stories about your little one. Head to Archer Coffee and Bagels, The Coffee Club, Crema Espresso and Moderne Cafe.

5. Indulge in a sweet treat

There’s nothing like ending a shopping trip with a special treat. Whether it’s an ice-cream from San Churro or a delicious donut from Donut King and Brooklyn Donut & Coffee Co. and it might make the trip back to the car and home much easier for all involved.

Enjoy a bit of pampering in centre at one of our nail salon – kids can try a new bright colour on their nails and mums will love a moment to sit still and relax in the massage chair. Try ProfesstioNAIL, Fashion Nails & Beauty, Nexus Nails and Beauty Stop.
