The Erindale Centre is a designated group centre located in the Canberra suburb of Wanniassa. It stands on the former site of the Erindale Homestead for which it is named, and serves the suburbs of Wanniassa, Monash, Gowrie, Fadden and Oxley. Erindale was developed in 1985, two years before the Tuggeranong Hyperdome and was intended as a “district retail centre”.
A variety of retail and service outlets are located in the retail core, Erindale Shopping Center, accessed off Denigan Street and Grattan Court, including a Woolworths supermarket, a pharmacy, a bakery, Michel's Patisserie, Coffee Guru, a take away shop, Mr. Sushi, a fish market, Canberra's Italian Deli, Erindale Meats and a St. George Bank branch. Several other outlets, including a 7-Eleven service station (converted from Mobil in 2011 after 7-Eleven acquired Mobil Australia outlets), are located in a mixed services area on the southern side of McBryde Crescent. Foundation Health Care and Erindale Chambers are located off Comrie Street.
A new Caltex Woolworths Fuel service station and retail complex were constructed on Denigan Street in 2006.
Some buildings in Erindale Centre are: The Cheesecake Shop and Goodberry's Ice Creamery.
Erindale Police Citizens Youth Club, Gugan Gulwan Youth Centre and Erindale Christian Centre are located at the northern end of the centre. Adjoining the commercial precinct of Erindale are Erindale College, Erindale Library, Active Leisure Center Erindale Vikings Club, and Tuggeranong Uniting Church.
Erindale is serviced by several ACTION bus routes. Routes 63, 65 and 66 run between the Tuggeranong and Woden Interchanges every 20 to 60 minutes from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. Route 11/111 also passes through Erindale, and continues to Tuggeranong and in the opposite direction to Woden and City Bus Interchanges. The additional service 265 runs from the Tuggeranong Interchange to City West twice during the morning peak hour and twice in the other direction in the evening peak hour. These services are weekday and weeknight only, on the weekends a different set of routes pass through Erindale. These are the 961, 964, 966 and 968. On weekends, the Blue Rapid also deviates via Erindale and operates under the route number 900. Time tables are found at the bus stops, however, passengers can also get times and routes from 13 17 10 or on Google Transit which is accessible through the Maps App on iOS devices.
A taxi rank can be found at the south entrance to the Erindale Shopping Centre.
Carparking is peaks at times, so drives may have to do a few laps to find a park, but is usually ok. Otherwise there is more parking at the car parks behind McDonalds.
