Keeping you safe at Coburns Central
Our community’s health and wellbeing is our overriding priority and we continue to maintain a range of measures to help keep you safe when you visit Coburns Central. These include:

Strengthening our already stringent cleaning processes, including a heightened focus on sanitising high-touch points with high-grade disinfectant, as well as increasing the number of cleaning rotations each day.
Placement of hand sanitiser stations at key locations throughout the centre for our entire community to access.

Installation of signage across our Centre, reminding our community to keep 1.5 metres between themselves and others at all times, as well as the placement of Australian Government-issued information posters in our bathrooms which outline crucial information on how you can help stop the spread of COVID-19.

How you can help
While visiting Coburns Central, we ask that you continue to play your role in keeping our community safe. This means:

Social distancing – always keep at least 1.5 metres between yourself and others,

Exemplary personal hygiene – wash your hands regularly and use the sanitiser stations located throughout the Centre for your convenience.

Handling illness safely – cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue and, most importantly, stay at home if you’re feeling unwell.

Adhere to capacity guidelines – currently in Victoria, the one in two square metre rule applies. Please adhere to retailer maximum capacity numbers which are outlined at their store entrance. 

Plan your visit - due to restricted numbers in our restaurants and beauty salons, please ensure you contact individual retailers to book your visit.


We ask for your support in ensuring Coburns Central continues to be a place of kindness and compassion for all our customers and staff during this time.
