Town centres are places for community and residents to access goods and services, socialise, recreate, work, study, access transport. Increasingly they're places to live.
Brimbank’s commercial offices and retail premises are concentrated around three key town centres.
Key Town Centres in Brimbank
Sunshine Town Centre
The Victorian Government’s metropolitan planning strategy, Plan Melbourne, identified the Sunshine Town Centre as a Metropolitan Activity Centre. It will play a significant role in the delivery of increased jobs and housing close to public transport, and provide a range of businesses, and education, government and community services.
Sunshine Town Centre is a base for State Government offices including VicRoads and the Department of Justice, well-known retailers in the Sunshine Marketplace, Sunshine Plaza, City West Plaza, and many local businesses, services and community facilities.
St Albans Town Centre
The St Albans Town Centre is an established traditional town centre that has an important local and sub-regional role.
With an extensive range of businesses and community, education, recreational and transport services, it's developed as a popular location for ethnic shopping and services, particularly among the Chinese and Vietnamese communities concentrated on Alfrieda Street.

Sydenham Town Centre
The Sydenham Town Centre predominantly comprises the Watergardens Shopping Centre. It includes the areas along Melton Highway, Kings Road and the Melbourne-Bendigo Rail Line.
There's significant potential for the centre to develop across the 50 hectare site that could accommodate additional retail, office, service, residential and community development and uses, broadening its role to that of a multifunctional centre.
A $50m food and dining precinct – The Marketplace – is currently being constructed.
Other notable town centres in Brimbank include Deer Park Village, Derrimut Village, and Keilor Village.
