Canberra is more than just a land of epic landscapes and beautiful public attractions. It’s also a place where you can party till the wee hours in the morning or shop till you drop. From huge labyrinth-like malls, small boutique shops, to local markets, you will find everything from designer clothing to beautiful homewares.

Being a Kiwi who has just recently moved to the city, you are in for a treat. There is everything you ever wanted, and things you didn’t even know you wanted. From your favourite trans-Tasman brands through to unique Aussie designers, there’s a huge range of clothing, accessories, homewares and more.

You can’t miss Canberra’s malls

They are everywhere. You can’t miss them, as these behemoths loom over the streets. Shoppers can experience several international and local brands under one roof, and you might be in for a pleasant surprise with what you may find.

Canberra Centre

Located at the heart of the city, Canberra Centre is quite majestic to look at, to say the least. Housing more than 250 shops under one single roof, the mall has a cinema, restaurants, and other services. One of the favourite destinations of fashion-savvy locals, you can find famous department store brands like Myers and David Jones. You can also enjoy some scrumptious meals at the mall’s North Quarter, where the fun never stops.

Canberra Outlet Centre

This is the city’s only outlet centre and is located in Fyshwick. Standing tall on the Newcastle Street corner, you can identify it quite easily. If you enjoy a good bargain, then Canberra Outlet Centre is the perfect place for you. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself with more than 70% discounts as it’s common across all factory and Homemaker Centre retailers. If it’s retail you’re after, then this is your one-stop destination.

You will find a lot of leading international retailers like Kaisercraft, West Elm, Bose, Lincraft, and Adairs.


Spend your day looking through the 11,000 square metre showroom in typical IKEA style and browse through nearly nine thousand products. There are many room sets available if you are looking to decorate your new home. Grab a quick lunch of Swedish meatballs at the popular IKEA restaurant before calling it a day.

You can easily grab an ACTION bus that will drop you close to these shopping centres. Cycling is an option too if you live nearby but cabs are readily available if you don’t want a public bus.

If you prefer things slightly more boutique

If malls don’t get your blood pumping or you prefer things with a bit of unique style, the city’s boutiques will welcome you with a warm smile. You can shop for anything from designer shoes to ornate jewellery pieces.

Rebel Muse

Shopaholics who are drawn towards designer clothing, jewellery and other accessories must give Rebel Muse a visit. It’s one of Canberra’s premier women fashion retailers and it gives shoppers a unique shopping experience. Pop into Braddon boutique and you will then truly appreciate the patience and care that’s taken to curate all the offerings. You will also find a lot of Australian designer labels here.

The Hive

Not very far from the city centre, The Hive is a magnificent gallery where you can satisfy all your giftware cravings. The place has developed a unique market for itself and is famous amongst Canberra’s populace for its offerings across art, craft, and design. You will also find stylish lighting designs along with beautiful homewares, fashion accessories, and designer jewellery. If you enjoy looking at art, then there are regular exhibitions held at the shop where local artists congregate and discuss art.

Moxom + Whitney

Sweet-scented bouquets, unique terrariums, and lush green moss, ferns, and plants are what make Moxom & Whitney one of the most sought after florists in the city. If you love the sound of this, then this is not a destination you should miss. It’s in a lovely location in the suburb of Braddon, where it’s the go-to destination of locals looking for some eclectic flower bunches and indoor plants. They even offer terranium classes, so go ahead and enrol in one. Before long you will find yourself growing some beautiful plants at home.

Bison Homewares

This is the go-to place in Canberra for all your ceramic needs. Bison Homewares offer handcrafted ceramic pieces for your kitchen that not just look beautiful, but are highly durable as well. Their artisans use their experience to draw inspiration from ideas that are well over a millennium old and produce designs that you will not find anywhere else. If you are into lifestyle magazines, then there is a high probability that you have seen some of their products as their wares have been featured for years.

Don’t forget to give the local markets a visit

From fresh produce to handmade products and everything in between, the local markets of Canberra are a fantastic place to shop and relax. Take a look at these famous markets to which you can easily travel to. You won’t regret it.

Capital Region Farmers Market

Located in the Southern Tablelands, the Capital Region Farmers Market is the largest regional market in Canberra. You will be greeted with tantalising smells of fresh coffee and produce while you soak in the atmosphere which is always buzzing and lively. The honey from the honey shops will still be warm from the hives and the oranges will simply melt in your mouth. With plants, flowers, seafood, cakes, condiments, meats, and much more spread across more than a hundred stalls, this market is definitely one to write home about.

Old Bus Depot Markets

Held every Sunday, these Old Bus Depot markets have won several awards for the unique experience they offer. You can find anything from handcrafted wares to clothing, jewellery, and food here so prepare yourself to be overwhelmed by choice.
