Tannery Shopping Centre The Tannery located at 3 Garlands Road is a shopping centre and function venue on the banks of the Heathcote River.

The complex is on the site of the Woolston Tanneries which closed in 1959.The Woolston Tanneries was a prominent industry in Woolston for approximately 80 years. The tanneries were situated on a roughly triangular piece of land bounded by Garlands Road, Maunsell Street, Tanner Street and Cumnor Terrace

The present day Tanneries complex was developed by Alisdair Cassels who began restoring some of the old tannery buildings and leasing them to businesses, while also developing the vacant land. This means that the site contains a mix of buildings, old and new.
