The Myers Centre, Shopping Complex


The Myer Centre is a 12-storey shopping complex between Queen Street Mall and

Elizabeth Street. It houses around 200 stores, including the Myer department store,

Coles Supermarket, Target, Australian Geographic Shop, the Birch Carroll & Coyle cinema complex, as well as a food court, pharmacies, news agencies, book shops, computer and electric goods stores, souvenir shops and a host of other stores.


This gives Myer Centre shoppers a wide range of selection on the things they need and want. They also have the option to make purchases online and be updated on the latest through

the Myer Centre’s own fashion magazine.

The Centre’s business hours are from nine a.m. until five-thirty p.m. from Mondays to Thursdays. It is opened until nine in the evening every Friday. On weekends, it closes at

five p.m. every Saturday and at three p.m. every Sunday.


Opening is an hour later at ten in the morning every Sunday. During holidays, business hours are from 10 a.m. to five p.m. However, some stores observe their own opening hours like the Birch Carroll & Coyle, the Beach House Bar and Grill and other establishments on level A.

Its customer service desk is located on Level Q, where shoppers will find the lost and found,

a stroller and wheelchair hire service and a parcel delivery service. Customers can avail of

the free home delivery service for their big items if they live within the 10 kilometer radius of the Centre. It must be noted that the Myer Centre is a no smoking area. When it opened to

the public in April of 1988, the Myer Centre was a lot different from how it is now. It used to house the Tops fun park where the current cinemas are now located.

Tops had an amusement centre, ferris wheel, dragon train, a swing ship and some small stores. It also had some nightclubs that offered live music including the Funkyard, which played host to alternative guitar rock music, and the Metropolis. In 2001, this area ceased operation and was demolished.

Being centrally located and easily accessible, the Myer Centre serves as a hub to Brisbane’s central business district. The Central Train Station is just three blocks away, and the Myer Centre has one of the largest car parks which operates 24 hours and can be accessed through Elizabeth Street and exited via Elizabeth and Albert Streets.

Through a direct lift, commuters can gain access to the underground bus interchange from the Myer Centre and the Queen Street Mall.

Buses pass through this interchange more than 3000 times per week. It is said to be among the largest underground bus interchanges in the world.
