Sunnybank Plaza Food Discovery Tours in QLD Marketing Awards!

On Friday 13 September, Sunnybank Plaza was awarded the Property Council’s Excellence in Marketing Award for Regional Shopping Centres, beating seven other Queensland shopping centres for the title.

Sunnybank Plaza Marketing Manager Lisa Smith said her award entry focussed on the centre’s popular Food Discovery Tours which began in September last year.

Lisa said the food tours were inspired by Sunnybank’s strong Asian influence and international dining offer. “Sunnybank Plaza is unlike any other shopping centre of our size in that we’re home to over 30 restaurants and take-away outlets.

“I’ve lived in the area all of my life and have worked in the centre for more than 10 years so I’ve been able to get to know the special qualities of the precinct very well. The Food Tours are one way we can encourage the broader community to embrace Sunnybank for what it is – a unique melting pot of food and culture,” she said.

“Throughout my time here I’ve come across a lot of people who love Asian food and want to try something new, but don’t really know where to start. It’s not an easy task deciding where to go and what dishes to order and sometimes you just need someone to point you in the right direction! We’re very lucky to have our tour guide Tony Ching; he’s a great character, extremely knowledgeable and has worked as a chef for over 30 years.”

Sunnybank Plaza has also been nominated as a finalist in the national 2013 Shopping Centre Marketing Awards which will be presented in Sydney on October 31.


  1. I’d never heard of these before but what a great idea to get the most out of all of those awesome Asian ingredients I’m never quite sure how to use properly! I’m checking out the January tour right now.

    • Yeah it’s such a great idea. I’m booked in to go this February – finishing off at Yum Cha, can’t complain about that 😉
