Inside Sydney's $65 million abandoned shopping centre

·2-min read

A TikToker has showed off the derelict inside of an abandoned $65 million shopping mall in Sydney's southwest.

The Brands on Sale shopping centre in Campbelltown has been abandoned since 2010, when it shut its door about 12 months after opening.

Now, it's a place where TikTokers go to create content and show off what the shopping centre once was.

The latest was a TikToker and YouTuber, @xistfilm.

On TikTok, the creator showed off a sneak peak of what the shopping centre looks like now.

Graffiti is seen smeared on the walls, glass shards litter the floor and the railing along the top floors is gone, but the shop fronts remain, though they're completely empty.

Natural light fills part of the shopping mall, but other parts of the building sit in complete darkness.

In the YouTube video, which is an extended look at the abandoned building, the explorers find old Apple accessories on the floor — all compatible with iPhone 3 and iPad 2.

"Oh my god, these are old as," the YouTuber says in his video.

The skylight is completely smashed in, an elevator door was bent out of shape and a mannequin's arm was also found.

"It's absolutely nothing like, spooky or scary about this place, to be honest, whatsoever, because it's so new," the person behind the account said in the YouTube video.

Brands on Sale site to become 800 homes

According to the Daily Telegraph the shopping centre cost $65 million.

Last year it was reported the shopping centre would be demolished to make way for 800 homes.

After opening in 2009, Brands on Sale went into receivership in 2010, the Macarthur Chronicle Campbelltown reported in 2015.

According to the 2015 article, it appears several retailers were still operating at the shopping centre back then.

On TikTok, @xistfilm said they don't condone going to abandoned places such as this shopping centre, but urged people to be respectful if they do go.

This isn't the first time a content creator has come to the Brands on Sale shopping centre. Last year, TikToker @chris.grima also visited the mall and abandoned unopened stock.

However, in the year between the two videos, the mall has only become more derelict, which didn't go unnoticed by people on TikTok.

"It’s getting more and more smashed up every time someone posts a video of it," one person said in the comments of @xistfilm's video on TikTok.
