Positioned in one of Victoria’s strongest growth corridors, Watergardens serves the needs of an ambitious and rapidly growing community.
Occupying the central portion of a developable site equivalent in size to a third of the Melbourne CBD, the centre is ideally positioned to evolve into a major civic and commercial hub for the outer western suburbs over the coming decades.
By anticipating how people visit, where they meet and why they stay, Watergardens seeks to set a new standard in successful living for the young, family-oriented households of Taylors Lakes and surrounds.
In 2020 we unveiled The Marketplace, a 5000m2 fresh food and casual dining precinct anchored by the area's first Aldi supermarket.
A community hub
From talent shows and local art to walking groups, bowling and coffee mornings, the centre offers a range of events and initiatives that promote community connection and enable locals to thrive.
Epicentre for the west
Located 25km north-west of Melbourne's CBD in the heart of Taylor's Lakes, the centre offers abundant parking and is easily accessed via the Melton Hwy and Watergardens Railway Station.
A place for family
Along with a range of family entertainment venues and communal spaces, Watergardens supports busy parents with school holiday events, complimentary play care and a kids' club.
Where flavours abound
From traditional wood-fired pizzerias to European-inspired dessert bars, the centre offers a range of cafes, casual lunch spots, family dining options and everyday food retail.
Inspired by the myriad culinary influences at play in Melbourne's western suburbs, the new-look Station Street brings together local food icons and nationally renowned restaurateurs to introduce a range of new-to-area dining offers.
This high street-style precinct comprises:
The rejuvenation of Station Street in 2021 is the latest phase in Watergardens' proposed multi-stage transformation into a thriving satellite city for Melbourne's west, with an 86-room Quest aparthotel also currently under construction.
