Birkenhead Point Drummoyne, The Outlet Centre is Sydney's largest outlet centre.[citation needed] Located in Drummoyne, New South Wales, Australia, the centre is also home to a marina and apartment complex. Most of the centre is an open space to maximise the views of Sydney Harbour.[citation needed]

History[edit]

Prior to being redeveloped as a shopping centre, the site was the site of the Perdriau Rubber Factory. Henry Perdriau started manufacturing rubber products here in c.1900. Perdriau Rubber Co. merged with the Dunlop Rubber Company of Australia in 1928, by which time Perdriau was producing 50,000 shoes per week and between 500,000 - 780,000 tyres annually.[2] The rubber factory was closed in 1976 when the site was sold to David Jones to be redeveloped.[3] The centre was opened on Thursday 26 July 1979 when redevelopment works were 80% complete.
