Here, shopaholics can spend hours walking up and down the pedestrian mall, enjoying the local and international brands on display. Altogether, there are more than 800 shops operating inside the mall area. Westfield Marion Shopping Centre is the most important shopping complex in the state. Even though it is outside the city center, the shopping mall can be reached via buses from the downtown area. Tea Tree Plaza and Harbour Town are two of the busier medium-sized shopping centers in the state.
