COVID-19 information and centre updates
As the impact of COVID-19 reaches further into our communities we wanted to assure you that the health and wellbeing of our customers and the Brandon Park community is the overriding priority.
We are monitoring the official advice from relevant health authorities including the Australian Government Department of Health and other National and State agencies and our actions will reflect guidance we have received.
We have implemented a range of precautionary measures to help mitigate the spread of the virus at Brandon Park including a heightened focus on sanitising hard surfaces throughout the Centre such as bathrooms, lift lobbies and centre court areas, the installation of additional hand sanitisers in the bathrooms and increased communication to customers regarding hygiene standards.
We continue to monitor the changing circumstances and are working to ensure Brandon Park, as the heart of your community, provides a safe environment to service your shopping needs.
Our policy and procedures relating to COVID-19 also includes contingency plans should we be required to manage the presence of the virus in our Centre. We are governed by the advice of health authorities and are well prepared for this scenario.
We will continue to communicate with you again as required and strongly encourage you to access and make yourself familiar with the following information sources:
We thank you for your continued support of the retailers at Brandon Park. The Centre remains open for business and look forward to seeing you soon.

Fresh & Fast
At Brandon Park Shopping Centre the safety of our community is always of the upmost priority. We have been closely monitoring the progression of the COVID-19 outbreak and as a result it is with much disappointment that we have decided to postpone our Fresh & Fast activation for the months of April and May based on the advice from health authorities.
Behind the scenes we will continue to monitor the advice from government officials and look forward to communicating revised dates for these activation’s in the future once the health and safety of patrons attending events is no longer a concern. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to celebrating with you soon.
