Your Questions Answered.
You have questions. We know that. Hopefully this helps.

Is Melbourne Central still open?

  • Yes, the Federal Government advised on 24th March that shopping centres provide ‘essential services to the community'.
  • We continue to be open for our customers, retailers and the broader community to access food, groceries, household items, products, medical services and banking.

Are food retailers still trading?
  • Selected food court retailers, cafes and restaurants within the centre continue to trade offering takeaway and home delivery only.
  • We have removed all tables and chairs from our food courts to facilitate take-away only and to ensure that social distancing practices are adhered to.
  • We continue to take extra precautions to ensure our food courts are clean and hygienic. This includes more frequent cleaning and sanitising high-touch surfaces.

How do we know what retailers are closed?
  • As the circumstances for each retailer continues to change, we will have a comprehensive listing on the Melbourne Central Website outlining any temporary store closures as well changes to trading hours.
  • If you are keen to visit specific stores, we recommend that you call the store before coming in to clarify their opening hours.

What are you doing to keep Melbourne Central clean?
  • It goes without saying that we remain absolutely committed to doing everything we can to put the health and safety of our MC community first.
  • We’ve installed free hand sanitiser stations throughout the centre including near our main entrances and exits, near food and dining precincts, and close to bathrooms.
  • We’ve also increased cleaning across the entire centre with particular focus on high foot traffic areas, and established dedicated additional cleaning services to make sure MC remains a place where you can feel safe.

What’s temporarily closed or restricted under the new directive from the Federal Government?

Temporarily Closed:
  • Cinemas and entertainment venues.
  • Gyms and indoor sport venues.

  • There are no dine-in options available in our food courts. You can still grab your favourite food and drink, but it must be takeaway.
