its time to play
Now, It's Time To Play
With school holidays coming up you’ll be looking for ways to keep the little ones busy.
Published 16 September

Spring is for exploring, especially at Grand Central! Here are three ways to entertain the family during the September School Holidays. 

No family outing is complete without food, and thankfully, we’ve got a world of different options that are just perfect for an afternoon or evening out with your brood. The secret to keeping everyone happy? Choose a venue with a broad range of family-friendly options on the menu or head to the Food Court, where everyone can take their pick from their favourite vendor. 

Until the end of September we have $10 and $20 dining deals available Centre wide, and we are sure there will be something for everybody! For more information visit the link below. 


As well as over 25 dining deals, some of our foodies are offering specific kid's deals. 

Betty's Burgers Kids Deal

It's time to dust off those schoolyard skills because Betty's Burgers have designed a limited edition Yo-Yo which is free with any purchase of a Betty's Classic, fries and drink bundle. Yo-Yo’s have had a popular place in the hearts of Australian’s for many decades but have been missing from mainstream society of late. Betty’s now believes it’s time to bring back some Yo-Yo fun to all of us! For more details and to redeem your free Yo-Yo in store, visit Betty's in our Dining Quarter. Available from 21 September, for the school holidays.

However, you wish to spend your holidays we hope to see you in Centre this September. 

The safety and wellbeing of our community, retailers and staff is our number one priority; so we encourage all customers to socially distance, make use of the sanitiser stations throughout the Centre, and to stay at home if you’re feeling unwell.
