Westfield Kotara is located six kilometres from the Newcastle CBD. The centre is well served by road, bus and rail links and caters to a trade area population of 465,000. Home to the only full-line David Jones department store in Newcastle, the centre is defined by a strong fashion focus and has a Kmart, Target, Coles and Woolworths as well as a broad mix of business partners which includes approximately 267 specialty stores. An 8-screen Event Cinema complex flows out to a rooftop dining and entertainment precinct. In 2018, a $160 million redevelopment of the centre saw the opening of a new youth and urban precinct, making it the fashion, dining and lifestyle capital of the Hunter. The redevelopment included the reintroduction of a new Kmart, JB Hi Fi, and approximately 30 new specialty retail stores.
The total retail spend by the Westfield Kotara Total Trade Area was estimated at $7.8 billion in 2023 while the total retail spend by the Main Trade Area was estimated at $3.9 billion.
