Canberra Airport is partnering with new retailers to add more than 1,000 square metres of new retail, food and beverage destinations with a focus on local food and locally-made gifts that showcase Canberra and the surrounding regions.
On the Western Concourse (Virgin Australia or International end of the airport), there will be a new café, ‘City Hill Coffee,’ serving Canberra’s favourite ONA coffee, a new Asian noodle and sushi offering called ‘Noodles XO,’ and a health food outlet.
On the Southern Concourse (Qantas end) the existing Limestone Bar, Tuk Shop and Hudson coffee will be replaced by, ‘Capital Brewing Co. Bar,’ a partnership with the well-known, local brewery to showcase the latest brews on offer, combined with high-quality, locally-sourced meals. Additionally, a new mixed news, books, travel essentials and café space will be added on the ground floor in the arrivals baggage hall.
Australian Way Pty Ltd will initially bring ‘News@CBR’ to Canberra Airport, offering a selection of news, books and everyday travel essentials. Following the opening of ‘News@CBR,’ Australian Way will open a second store, ‘Merchant Canberra,’ which will showcase iconic gifts from Canberra, its surrounding regions, and around Australia.
Construction will begin in coming months and stores will be introduced in two stages, with stage one finishing by the end of this year and stage two being completed by Easter 2020.
