The shopping centre is also serviced by a taxi rank just outside of the centre itself.

History

Colonnades Shopping Centre was built in 1979 and had a wing added to the northern end of the centre in the mid-late 2000s which included a Woolworths supermarket. Colonnades Shopping Centre was acquired by Centro in 2003, and underwent a A$125 million expansion, which has seen the building of a larger Woolworths, and the addition of a Big W among many other shops. The new wing also added a number of speciality shops to the expanded area.

The centre contains three supermarkets, two department stores and approximately 200 other specialty stores. The mall also contains a food court.

The shopping centre has laid and connected 5000 solar panels on its rooftop. The 1.8 megawatts (MW) system is generating renewable power to reduce dependence on the national grid and contribute towards the environment of the local community.
