# From Westfield Bondi Junction to North Rocks: where shoppers are spending (or not) their money in Westfield’s vast retail portfolio

Shopping centre giant Westfield, one of Australia’s biggest retail landlords, reported a strong 2011 to December 31, with profits of $1.5 billion despite the challenges facing the retail sector.

In its 2011 annual report, Westfield says its Australian portfolio remained resilient and at almost full occupancy “reflecting the ongoing demand for high-quality retail space”.

Westfield operates 43 malls throughout Australia, with Airport West in Melbourne recording the strongest increase in sales of 7% over the year, followed by Belconnen in the ACT, with a 5.5% gain.

There were 18 stores that recorded a decline in sales over the year, the biggest being a 10.3% drop in Kotara, Newcastle followed by an 8% declined in Pacific Fair on the Gold Coast.

Westfield Bondi Junction in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, which managed over $1 billion in sales in 2010, declined by 3.9% to $973 million in 2011.

Here’s a breakdown of how Westfield’s centres performed, starting from Bondi Junction and ending with North Rocks in Sydney’s west ($144 million):
