Still out and about

The Metamorphosis of Minto Mall
For sometime, the old Minto Mall was a cause of discontent. Unlike its counterparts in Campbelltown and Macarthur, the Minto Mall wasn't the hub of activity that it should have been - having an aged feel and only a few shops.

This was despite the fact that the site is in a prime location - close to the Minto railway station, and almost all major fast food drive-thrus - McDonalds, KFC, Red Rooster, Pizza Hut and Hungry Jacks. It is also very close to Minto's Fruit Orchard, the Coronation Park Netball Complex and the Minto Indoor Sports Centre.

A new face for the mall


Since its much needed renovation, and subsequent christening as the 'Minto Marketplace', it has become the sort of shopping centre that a local mall should be. And it's no wonder - the new mall is far more enticing, with a good balance of well-known chain stores and local businesses. Both the interior and exterior are fresher and more inviting, and there is promise of more stores to come.

Still a few shops to be filled but the mall is busy regardless


The centre already has a Woolworths, Kmart, Reject Shop, GBO, Flight Centre, Lowes, Best and Less, Spendless Shoes and a Priceline Pharmacy, to name a few.

Local shops include a fish market, bakery, and this fantastic Oriental shop. It has a blend of Indian and Asian supplies as well as various other food items not normally found in regular supermarkets - think dried fish and frozen okra. The range is ideal, considering that there are very few outlets in the Campbelltown area selling these types of specialist food items.

Among the eateries on-site is a Thai restaurant, a fish and chip shop, Gloria Jeans, Michelle's patisserie, Subway, a Donut King, and a food court with Middle Eastern and Asian options.

Fortunately Minto Marketplace is central to the ever-growing residential areas surrounding it, as well as the older more established suburbs like St Andrews, Woodbine and Minto Heights. It is also an easy 5-minute walk from Minto Station, and a number of bus routes go via the Minto Marketplace to nearby suburbs. There is plenty of parking on both sides of the mall as well.
