Follow the meandering paths to one of the many outdoor spaces and features in the vibrant community plaza.
Relax on the sprawling lawns, attend a food festival in the amphitheatre, cool-off by one of the two water features, or cheer on your favourite sports team when they play on the big outdoor screen.
The paved amphitheatre will be a welcome celebration and back-drop for community life, gatherings, external performances and interactions.
Attend an outdoor market or food festival, or come with the kids in summer to cool-off in the splash-zone. There will always be something to do and see in the amphitheatre.
Watch a movie with family and friends or support your favourite sporting team when the big game is on.
Protected from the noise of the highway thanks to the enveloping arms of the building, you won't miss any of the action on the big screen at Bunjil Place.
Reflective water features
Sit back and relax by one of the two reflective water features in the community plaza. Wrapped in bluestone pavers, the rippling water features will provide a sense of peace in the otherwise busy plaza.
You will find the water features beside the outdoor screen and as part of the splash-zone in the amphitheatre.
Lawns and play areas
On a sunny day, the best seat in the house will be on the green grass of the community plaza. Grab a seat to watch the big screen, read a book in the shade or simply watch people come and go.
The kids will be kept busy on the new and improved play areas. And if it starts to get warm, cool off in the amphitheatre splash-zone.

The name 'Bunjil'
Bunjil is derived from traditional Aboriginal mythology, meaning ‘the eagle’. It is the creator and spiritual leader of the people of the Boon Wurrung, who, along with the Wurundjeri people, are the traditional custodians of the land on which Bunjil Place will be located.
The unique building design, which gives the impression of an eagle's wings, was inspired by the Bunjil and the historical significance of the name is fitting.
