A Hub for Retail and Convenience

At the heart of Tarneit’s commercial expansion is The Sheds Tarneit, a $100 million development slated to open in late 2024. This much-anticipated town centre promises to cater to the needs of a rapidly growing population, featuring a full-line Coles supermarket, McDonald’s, and a range of specialty food stores, hospitality venues, childcare centres, and medical facilities. This development not only signals a boost in local employment opportunities but also ensures that residents have access to national retail offerings within their community.

Sporting Spirit and Community Engagement

Tarneit is also set to become a focal point for sporting excellence and community engagement, with Western United Football Club announcing its new home in the suburb.
