It has 3 stories of everything you need - Coles, Woolies and Aldi's (supermarkets) as well as your usual newsagents, Kmart, Target other clothes shops. It also has a big food court on level 3 as well as Event Cinemas if your in the mood for a movie.
Late night shopping is on Thursdays untill 9pm.
What to buy: Everything you need!
What to pay: As much as you like - no limit!

It is an open air market that is open on Thursdays from morning to 5pm. It is located at the Hunter St Mall. Just walk outside from the shopping centre or from the train station. You won't miss them.
What to buy: It sells fresh organic produce like plants, herbs, eggs, honey and very fresh quality vegies. It is quite relaxing to browse amongst the stores, and you can sometimes pick up a good deal.
What to pay: The same price as your usual grocery vegetables. At closing time, sometimes, you can get a few 'sales'. Otherwise, organic vegetables can be a little more dear than the average supermarket produce.
