Elevator 2

Elevator 2 is a Johns Perry elevator, which, like Elevator 1, was installed in 1980 and modernised by Schindler in the 2000s. Unlike Elevator 1, this elevator is a service elevator and therefore is not intended to be accessible by the general public.

  1. Start from the Myer entry and head for the Level 2/Ground Level food court.
  2. As you turn into the food court, note the passage near the Boost juice bar.
  3. Walk down that passage. The elevator should be on your left.

  • This elevator is one of the few elevators in Australia to have a non-centre opening, non-telescopic door.
  • This elevator has a Kone mod-style call button; whether this actually means that this elevator was modded by Kone is unconfirmed, however.

Elevator 4

Elevator 4 is an elevator in Westfield Garden City. It is either originally a DEVE-Schindler, or an Otis. It has been modernised by Schindler around 2003.


  1. Walk towards Toys 'R' Us and/or the Brisbane Library. 
  2. Turn towards the outdoor dining area. The elevator should be on your left if coming from Toys 'R' Us.
