Wurundjeri acknowledgement

We at The District Docklands Acknowledge the Wurundjeri people who are the custodians of the land on which our Centre is based.
We pay respect to Elders past and present.

The District Docklands is the experiential heart of the Docklands, primed to become Melbourne’s leading lifestyle destination. Shop your favourite Australian and international brands include H&M, Cotton On, General Pants Co., Canterbury, Bonds, Platypus Shoes, Miniso and more.

Ride the iconic Melbourne Star for a bird’s eye view of Melbourne, or experience 3D art at the ArtVo immersive gallery. Explore a range of different and unique experiences including The Blender Studios, Dialogue in the Dark, The Lost Forests and Chipmunks Play Centre.

In the coming months, we look forward to opening a new state-of-the-art entertainment precinct with HOYTS, alongside vibrant first-to-Melbourne dining and diverse fresh food offerings for the entire family. All through the day from morning till late, it is the place to experience different.  

In 2019, we also look forward to welcoming The Market! Our new fresh food precinct with Woolworths, Dan Murphy's and twenty-five specialty retailers. Also joining us is Priceline Pharmacy and Tristar Medical Centre as well as health and beauty services to complete the convenience offer.
