This is my local shopping centre and I shop here at least 3 times a week. If you can, avoid lunch hour (between 12 and 2 ) parking areas get busy and so do the food outlets.

Let's be honest. This place is a hole. Sick of going there to witness drunks, drug addicts and general scum wandering around, screaming at each other and getting caught shoplifting.

The shopping area is all over the place..Some shops in one complex and some shops in another complex, very limited undercover parking. Only shop there for convenience coming home from work

Whether you are visiting Marketown East or Marketown West there is plenty of parking with easy access to shops, supermarkets and even Officeworks. I particularly like the new addition with underground parking that keeps the car cool and me dry on wet days.

Small as far as shopping centres go.. had the essentials, we were in & out in 10 minutes. Not much to do! Probably handy if you're living/staying near!

Good for a quick grab and go. Grocery store, Post Office, Banks, eateries, cafes, news agent, hairdresser, Boutique stores, Henny Penny, Fruit and vege ( seperate to main shopping centre) and Office works. Plenty of parking if you avoid peak hour traffic.

This needs to be rated much lower. Glenrock and Fernleigh track should be much higher. There are much better.

This is a great little place in the centre of Newcastle city, its a vibrant little precinct and it brings much needed footfall and cash to the centre of our wonderful city, there are chemists, supermarkets, bakers, opticians, newsagents, you name it and all good quality even a fruit wholesaler with a great range of fresh home grown goodies.
