Rochedale Village opened on 2nd September 2019. It is a brand new neighbourhood shopping centre in the heart of Rochedale, located 15 kms south of the Brisbane CBD. The venue is Rochedale Village, 329 Gardner Rd, Rochedale.
Offering the latest concept Coles Supermarket, Liquorland and 14 other specialty stores, the centre will include a vast range of tenants from medical, allied health, retail services and casual dining/takeaway and great cafe options. There is also a park right near the centre, so children can play while adults shop.
