Westfield North Lakes is a shopping centre in North Lakes on the northern outskirts of Brisbane. The centre first opened in on 7 August 2003 and initially included around 80 stores including Target and Coles. In early 2007, construction began on a major extension that was set to bring the total number of stores in the centre to over 200. The extension was opened to the public in October of the same year, including Big W and Woolworths stores and a food court which replaced the old one that was demolished due to the expansion. In May 2008, the centre's 2-level Myer store was opened, which replaced the Myer store in Westfield Strathpine that closed in 2007 to ensure that there is still a Myer in the fast-growing Moreton Bay area.

In August 2012 it was announced that a planning application for stage 3 of the centre was given to Moreton Bay Regional Council for approval. If the application is approved over 100 specialty stores including Kmart, a cinema complex and Ikea will be constructed. Westfield has said they hope for the next stage to be completed by late 2014 depending on the approval by the council.

On December 21, 2012, the Moreton Bay Regional Council approved the extension of the centre with completion set for the end of 2014.
