Between art, shopping and our great café culture, Taradale is the perfect place to be. Shopping small means getting products that you are interested in as small businesses select products based, not on a national sales plan, but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, which guarantees a much broader range of product choices.

Our Taradale CBD is compact and easy to get around, offering a truly unique shopping experience. The stores are local independent businesses offering friendly personal service. We have numerous boutiques, retailers and online traders showcasing a variety of brands, labels and unique pieces.
