  • Good central location in the city to meet up with people. Bless the clock. On every hour the clock plays Waltzing Matilda, which is a pretty neat thing for tourists to experience. Has lots of shops ranging from food, clothes, skincare, technology, arcade, bowling, laser tag and more… No one I know actually goes to the shops here though, it’s more just a formality to have them.
  • A good shopping experience in the heart of the city. Lots of different stores, including many popular franchises, and also plenty of food and entertainment options. But I've also loved the main courtyard with the Shot Tower under the dome - such a weird concept but it totally works!
