Miranda is a suburb in southern Sydney, in the state of New South WalesAustralia. Miranda is located 24 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district, in the Sutherland Shire.

Miranda has a mixture of low, medium and high density residential and is known as a commercial centre for the southern suburbs. Miranda’s Westfield shopping centre attracts many shoppers from the Sutherland Shire, the St George area and as far away as Wollongong.



Miranda is noted for the Westfield shopping centre (mall), adjacent to the Miranda railway station. The shopping centre runs parallel to The Kingsway, and is built on three blocks, crossing over Kiora Road and Wandella Road. This shopping centre was once notable for being the largest shopping centre in the Southern Hemisphere. Originally known as ‘Miranda Fair’, the last extension and renovation was completed in 1994, providing 107,000 square metres of retail space. Westfield Miranda was soon eclipsed in size by Westfield Parramatta‘s extension. Miranda Fair is currently the 8th largest in Australia and the 4th largest in Sydney.

Miranda also has a shopping strip, running along The Kingsway and Kiora Road. Numerous commercial developments are also located on these roads and surrounding streets. A smaller shopping centre containing a supermarket and various grocery shops is located nearby in Wandella Road.
