Westfield Woden is a shopping centre located in the Woden Town Centre in the suburb of Phillip of Canberra, Australian Capital Territory.

History[edit]

Initially constructed in stages during the 1970s, it underwent a major redevelopment in the late 1990s[citation needed], adding on a new wing to the building called "The Fresh Food Market" as well as a new Hoyts 8-screen cinema complex, and refurbishment of older sections.

The Westfield Group purchased a 50% stake in the complex during 2005, with the remaining 50% still belonging to General Property Trust.[1] [2] As of July 2014, this shopping centre is now under Scentre Group management.[3]
