You Can Shop Till You Drop - Just 5 Minutes Away

The Best Western Sunnybank Star Motel And Apartments is ideally located to all major amenities. For all your day to day needs a 7 day supermarket, chemist, newsagent and post office are within 5 minutes walking distance. You will also find more specialty shops and entertainment within walking distance. There is a fine fruit and vegetable market, fish market and butcher, delicatessen, bakery and various restaurants. If you need to see a doctor, dentist or physio, they are also close by. If you want to take your shopping experience to another level, there are 2 major shopping centres nearby :

Garden City Westfield

Garden City is a huge shopping complex about 5 minutes by car or bus from the motel. It is part of the Westfield chain of shopping centres.

It is the largest shopping complex in the south of Brisbane and is much more than just a place to shop.

It has a megaplex cinema where the latest movies can be seen and arcades can entertain the kids in between movie sessions and shopping. There is also a main stage in the “Town Square” part of the complex, where occasional live acts will perform. There are an assortment of restaurants and eateries to try too.

There are heaps of specialty fashion shops for any dedicated followers of fashion. These include Alannah Hill, Diane von Furstenberg, Ksubi, Lisa Ho, SABA, Sabatini and many more. And you can even get a personal style and shopping session by an in house stylist. This can be booked online or at the Concierge, Upper Level in the centre. The stylist will suggest a new look and take you to the  rights stores and shops to make the look a reality. 

There are also plenty of shops for men and kids, including the major department stores and places like Harvey Norman, Toys r us and others.

If you need a bit of time to yourself, the Kids Stay 'n' Play lets you drop your kids (3-11) off. Carers will instruct the kids on face painting, arts and crafts and will also tell stories and play video to keep the kids entertained.

Kids can also go to the Playworld near Harvey Norman. This has slides, ball pits and various other things to keep kids (1-5) busy and active.

You can also see a justice of the peace at the centre too.

Most of the shops are open standard hours (9-5.30 Monday to Friday). There is late night shopping on Thursday night till 9pm. The centre is open on Saturday 9-5 and Sunday 10-5. events

Sunnybank Plaza

Sunnybank plaza is another shopping centre not far from the motel. I'd say it's not as big as Garden city but still big enough to spend an afternoon shopping and doing various other things.

The Plaza is also around 5 minutes by car from the motel. It would be easy to get to it by bus or taxi if you didn't have your own transport.

The plaza has all the major shops you will need like Coles and K-Mart. It also has a Hoyts cinema complex too.

A unique aspect of the Sunny bank plaza is that there are many individual Asian shops. These are mainly to do with food and fresh produce. You can even go on a tour of all the shops with Tony the Chef.

He will show you all sorts of Asian ingredients and food stuffs and suggest things you can do with them. You may pick up the odd new recipe or cooking technique from Tony on the tour. The tour can be booked at the information centre in the plaza.    

If you are in the area during Chinese New Year celebrations, be sure to spend a day at the Sunnybank plaza as all sorts of activities go on to see in the new year.

And Even More Shopping

Eight Mile Plains Shopping centre is very close to the motel. It has a range of shops and eateries.   The Brisbane city centre is 15 minutes away by bus too. The bus will take you to the Queens Street Mall which has shopping, entertainment and eating venues for every taste.
