Macquarie Centre

Macquarie Centre in North Ryde is a retail landmark of Sydney’s northern suburbs. Since first opening in 1981, it has become the largest centre in its Total Trade Area and the only centre to accommodate two department stores.

Macquarie Centre provides a mix of some of the best international and high-street fashion and accessories brands, supported by productive supermarkets and fresh food retailers. Enhancing its entertainment appeal, Macquarie Centre encompasses a cinema, ice skating rink, children’s amusement operators and more than 70 food and hospitality venues.

The centre sits within Australia’s largest suburban office precinct, which comprises approximately 62,000 workers, and adjacent to Macquarie University, home to 44,000 students and 3,700 staff members. The centre is also positioned beside the Macquarie University Metro Station, with connecting rail transport to Sydney’s CBD.

Macquarie Centre was significantly redeveloped in 2014 and further opportunity exists in the development of over-site towers, which have received concept development consent.

Cbus Property owns a 25 per cent interest in Macquarie Centre through its investment in the Australian Core Retail Trust, acquired in October 2021.
