Over recent months, Phillip has had a much-needed injection of life. The core of the suburb, the Woden Town Centre, was once a thriving hub of activity but for most of the past decade it had fallen off the radar. Now, thanks to a hip, new dining precinct that’s part of Westfield Woden, the area is not only returning to its former glory but also has undergone a complete transformation. Plus, there are a number of residential developments on the horizon for Phillip including A&A, Oaks and Grand Central Towers.
