The Colombo is a unique shopping and entertainment experience that has been a leading factor in the invigoration of Sydenham as a food and shopping destination.
The bright and airy architectural space houses a wide variety of retailers that cater to every need. From the craft-inclined to cutting edge fashion, local cuisine and home-ware; The Colombo supports and showcases many local businesses and is constantly bringing new and exciting retail concepts to the space. Their Friday Farmers Market is one such example; hosting top notch Canterbury makers & growers every Friday, they provide wholesome foods in a relaxed and creative environment.
Open late for First Thursdays, The Colombo is generously hosting Fitting Room, a large group exhibition of emerging contemporary artists. Make sure to visit this pop-up exhibition and sample some of the delectable treats that The Colombo has to offer! The First Thursdays guided tours both leave from The Colombo - the Graffiti Art Tour departs Underground Coffee at 6pm, and the Art Gallery Tour departs the Fitting Room exhibition at 8pm.
Not only is First Thursday's happening in Sydenham but after the event The Colombo will continue to have the Summer packed with plenty of good reasons to head down town such as the Afternoon Shout! To celebrate the season you can spend October shopping in The Colombo stores and when you spend $100 or more you'll instantly receive an afternoon shout in the Foodhall on them!
