The Erindale Centre is a designated group centre located in the Canberra suburb of Wanniassa in Australia. It stands on the former site of the Erindale Homestead for which it is named,[1] and serves the suburbs of Wanniassa, Monash, Gowrie, Fadden and Oxley. Erindale was developed in 1985, two years before the Tuggeranong Hyperdome. It was intended as a “district retail centre”.
