MacArthur Central  

MacArthur Central is always a hive of activity, thanks in large part to Woolworths, one of the only full-sized supermarkets in The City. On the basement floor, you can find a BWS bottle shop, Priceline Pharmacy and several grab-and-go food outlets. On the ground and upper floors, you’ll find a two-level Big W department store, JB HiFi, and food and drink retailers Mica Express and Blackstar.

We recommend securing your parking spot ahead of time with Secure Parking Brisbane City. Spend $40 in Woolworths or $65 in Big W and receive one-hour free parking any day of the week. All you need to do is validate your parking ticket at the customer service desk at either retailer. This car park is closed on public holidays.
