Disappointed to find that the $5 all day parking that was proudly proclaimed on the web, actually does not exist. The only parking I could find was $88 for the day.

Nice and clean and tidy, but unfortunately not many shops to look at. Woolies and Big W are really the only drawcards.

Shocking layout. Very little there in the way of shops. Limited eatery. It is clean but not an enjoyable place to shop. Dislike how it is on 2 sides of the road. Wont be going there again
