Where are Australia's biggest shopping centres?

Melbourne and Sydney play host to most of Australia’s largest shopping centres, with Chadstone Shopping Centre in the Melbourne suburb of Malvern East claiming to be the largest shopping centre in the southern hemisphere. Brisbane’s Westfield shopping mall in Chermside is the largest shopping centre in Queensland, with over 406 stores to send you into a shopping frenzy. The Gold Coast is also a shopper’s heaven, home to Pacific Fair, Australia Fair and the most recently built Robina Town Centre.
