Westfield Chermside is also becoming a favourite evening spot of many locals and visitors from abroad thanks to a new leisure and dining precinct, opened in June. Numerous boutique cafes are almost always full, still, whoever prefers some fine dining it’s all there: already established restaurants and local offerings. The list includes: San Churro, Tapworks Bar & Grill, Daniel Ridgeway's BiN 931, Betty's Burgers, Hermosa by Olé and many others.

About Scentre Group
Scentre Group was established on 30 June 2014 through the merger of Westfield Retail Trust and Westfield Group’s Australian and New Zealand management business. In 1960, Westfield was listed as a public company on the Sydney Stock Exchange (ASX) and began developing shopping centres in Australia. It later expanded to New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Europe.
Scentre Group was created to own, manage and develop Westfield shopping centres in Australia and New Zealand. A separate company – Westfield Corporation – was created to do the same with Westfield Group’s international shopping centre portfolio.
Group manages around 11,550 retailers in 3.6 million square metres of retail space. All the centres within the group have strong positions in their local markets.
