The GPT Group have opened ‘The Quarter’, a $34-million dining and entertainment precinct at Casuarina Square. The Quarter will be Darwin’s key alfresco dining and entertainment destination, with 5,500m2 of dining and entertainment space and seven first-to-Darwin eateries. The new precinct will also be a place for families and people to socialise, including a Timezone, interactive kids play and water areas, a civic space and undercover parking.

The precinct was officially opened on 8 July with Casfest, a weekend of live music, entertainment, kids’ activities and special offers.

GPT’s Head of Retail, Vanessa Orth said GPT is very confident about the long-term economic outlook for Darwin.

“We are very excited to be delivering this food and leisure offering to the people of Darwin,” said Orth. “GPT is continuing to invest in Casuarina Square to service the needs of Darwin’s fast-growing population.”

“GPT has spent $34 million on the new food and leisure precinct, $35 million on a new student accommodation at Casuarina Square and $4.5 million on Australia’s largest rooftop solar installation at the centre,” she said.

The seven ‘first-to-Darwin’ eateries as part of the new dining precinct include: The Groove Train, Grill’d, PappaRich, Max Brenner, Cantina de Mad Mex, Nutrition Station Café, and Sushi Bay. Other food retailers in the precinct will include Hog’s Breath Café, Nandos, Baskin-Robbins, Chatime and Casuarina Square’s second Coffee Club. SCN
