As our cities get bigger, so too do our shopping centres. If you’ve noticed your local shopping centre or major shopping complex expanding, you’re not the only one. Shopping centres in Australia are expanding at a high rate, and one of them is Indooroopilly Shopping Town in Brisbane. The shopping centre car park has been suffering for months from huge delays for those who simply want to get out. They don’t love shopping that much! It’s been the subject of much discussion on talk back radio this week but today, we want to know the worst car park in Australia.

Instead of driving, shoppers are encouraged to use public transport, with spokespeople for the Brisbane shopping centre telling the Courier-Mail, “To maximise their shopping experience, customers are encouraged to travel to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre by bus or train. The train station is only a few minutes’ walk from the centre on Station Rd”. Is that good enough?


Tell us, do you have a local shopping centre that is a nightmare to navigate? Or somewhere you simply avoid because of the horrible parking situation? Or are you over paying when you’ve just spent money shopping? Let’s talk about it!

  1. like to know how to get the weeks groceries home on public transport

  2. Our shopping centre car parks aren’t too bad in the West although they can be crowded on occasions – but why would anyone who didn’t have to travel on public transport to do their shopping? I went shopping this morning and ended up with 5 bags and a carton of cool drink. How on earth would I take all that on a bus?

  3. Chadstone Shopping Centre with a million visitors everyday and a car park catering for one/two thousand car parks. Ridiculous!! Then there is Meadow Heights Shopping Centre with a car park for two hundred cars. Next to the Centre is a MOSQUE which attracts ten thousand devotees every Friday and these hardened Islamists occupy the car park and near by surrounds practically all day, making it impossible to go shopping on Fridays.
