Stage 3 Development

Stage 3 commenced construction in March 2018, to add an additional 5,634m2 to the existing centre. With commitment from Coles and Liquorland, Stage 3 will also include a gourmet market precinct along with additional specialty retail including fashion, homewares and services. Due to the recent weather event, the opening has been delayed until approximately the third quarter of 2019. A new Grand Opening date will be confirmed in due course.

Questions and Answers

What is happening to Fairfield Central Shopping Centre?

We are excited to advise that the $32M expansion of Fairfield Central (Stage 3) has commenced on the land adjoining the existing centre.

What is the history of Fairfield Central?

Fairfield Central is a bustling sub-regional shopping centre located in Idalia, just 7km from the Townsville CBD. Since Stage 1 opening in 2008, Stage 2 opened in November 2015, with Kmart offering extended trading hours to 9pm weeknights.

What are the benefits of Stage 3?

The expansion will provide customers with a quality shopping experience and first-class retail and facilities.
Upon completion, the expanded centre will include:
✅ A new 4000sqm Coles full line supermarket
✅ Approximately 16 new specialty stores
✅ 285 new car parks

There will be a significant number of local jobs created during the construction phases and following the opening in 2019.

Parking and Traffic

There will be minimum disruption to customers while we expand the centre. The existing Stage 2 entry from Darcy Drive is now closed and a new temporary road has been constructed for customers as the new entry / exit point off Darcy Drive. Please follow the directional signage.


We look forward to keeping you updated throughout the construction and will announce new retailers along the way. Subscribe to our email updates via our website to stay informed.
