Australia Fair’s ageing food court transformed into snazzy dining precinct

AUSTRALIA Fair’s iconic food court has been transformed into a flash modern dining precinct following stage one of the shopping centre’s $25 million upgrade.

The ageing 1995 cafeteria-style food court has been revamped to reflect a contemporary coastal vibe.

The enhanced eating area plays on the centre’s expansive waterfront views and includes a mix of lounge-style bench seating, stylish high bars, new amenities and extravagant pendant lightning.


Phone charging stations have also been installed all throughout the food court, in addition to Free Wi-Fi and four large flat screen televisions which will air Foxtel.

Several new food outlets have also opened to compliment the popular precinct’s new look, including Vintage Grind, Uncle Bills, Stellar Vietnamese Street Food and U Grill.

Australia Fair general manager Ramon Otten said the upgrade followed the revitalisation of the Scarborough Street entrance and ground floor concourse, and the introduction of a new-look Coles.

Mr Otten said the iconic Broadwater-facing food court now “exudes a strong coastal ambience” with a “contemporary new-look”.

“Stage one of the revitalisation project has already been extremely well-received by our shoppers, who have provided positive feedback on the new look and feel to this part of the Centre,” Mr Otten said.

“We have carried on the same vibe through to the new-look food court, which will also complement our popular alfresco dining precinct, Australia Fair Metro.

“The transformation will see customers enjoy a selection of international dining options, from fresh salads, sushi and Vietnamese, as well as new furniture and facilities.”
