Canberra, Brisbane and Perth will soon be hosting Australia’s 14th, 15th and 16th Apple Stores. Alert readers have pointed us to job listings on Seek asking for applications for ‘Apple Retail Specialists’ in all three locations.
In Canberra, there are no reports of the distinctive black cladding Apple uses to conceal its shop fit-outs being seen anywhere yet, but likely locations include the Westfield shopping centres at Woden and Belconnen, and in Civic, Canberra’s city centre.
Currently, the nearest Apple Store to Australia’s capital is in Sydney, three hours to the north.
The Brisbane job ads refer to the location as ‘South-East Brisbane’, which could indicate a location in the Westfield Carindale Shopping Centre – a site long touted as a possibility.
Queensland currently has Apple Stores at Chermside and Robina.
Western Australia currently has an Apple Store in Hay St, Perth, and since the jobs ads refer to ‘South Perth’ the location for the next one is touted to be at the Westfield Carousel mall.
Hobart, Adelaide and Darwin are currently the only capital cities in Australia without an official store.
