+ Shop on your own where possible

And remember, if you are unwell, please stay home.

We will continue to monitor and act upon the advice of the Victorian Government as the situation changes. We would also recommend staying up to date with the latest advice by visiting: vic.gov.au/coronavirus or health.gov.au

Thank you for your continued support. We are in this together, please stay safe.


I want to visit a specific retailer – how do I know if they are open?

We recommend contacting the retailer directly as individual store opening hours can differ from our centre opening hours. You can find a comprehensive list of our retailers here https://www.broadmeadowscentral.com.au/stores/.

What are you doing to keep the community safe?

Our focus remains the health, wellbeing and safety of everyone in our centres - our customers, our retailers and our retailers.

Of course, we continue to have a range of stringent and protective measures in place including:

  • Physical and digital signage reminding customers to keep a safe distance apart
  • Window signage and floor decals for our retailers to assist with communicating physical distancing measures
  • Floor decals and physical distancing reference points in key areas
  • Increased sanitisation and cleaning of all customer touch points and high traffic areas
  • Hand sanitiser at all entrances
  • heat-mapping to help our team identify any busy zones in our centre
  • Additional team members in-centre during peak periods, offering hand sanitiser and reminding customers of distancing guidelines
  • Automated, regular public announcements centre-wide, communicating distancing expectations
  • Security officers, in high visibility vests, are monitoring our centres, together with supporting local police to enforce social distancing requirements as appropriate
  • Zero tolerance on anti-social or disrespectful behaviour
  • Precautionary closure of playgrounds, kids rides and massage chairs.

Can I come shopping after coming through the COVID-19 pop-up testing?
