Gnalla Pop-up Plaza

Come celebrate your local community at Gnalla Pop-up Plaza at Nollamara Shopping Centre running from 1 March to 30 June.

'Gnalla’ is the Indigenous word for ‘our’, and is the name of the Pop-up Plaza that has been created under the beautiful, shady Ficus trees at Nollamara Shopping Centre.

The City will be hosting six events throughout the month of April, which will include activities for families and young people including roving performers and workshops. 

City officers will be onsite on event days, working with the community to design a plaza at the Nollamara Shopping Centre, that reflects the community’s needs and priorities.

To facilitate the Pop-up Plaza, one of the entrances to the Nollamara Shopping Centre from Nollamara Avenue will be closed. The Shopping Centre can still be accessed from Nollamara Avenue near the Carcoola St roundabout and from Hillsborough Drive and Sylvia Street.

  • Concept - Gnalla Pop Up Plaza

    The Pop-Up is an economic development initiative that came from survey feedback the City received on the Better Suburbs project area. When the community was asked how we could improve the public places they meet at, 40% of respondents said they wanted the City to create public plazas.

    With that in mind, the City set about creating a public plaza that included 15 Market Stall spaces to ensure the space was sufficiently activated and could provide economic opportunities for local people to trade.

    Gnalla Pop-Up Plaza is designed to be a community led initiative to give retailers and residents ownership into rejuvenating Nollamara Shopping Centre so that it can be shared and enjoyed by all.

    The Pop-Up is operating as a trial so the City can test the plaza concept and survey residents, shop owners and market stall operators. The data gathered during the trial will assist the City in measuring the benefits of the Pop-Up Plaza to the community and how the space could evolve into a permanent plaza into the future.
