The jewel of the east, Eastgate Shopping Centre brings a profound shopping experience to the table. Here, you can expect to find everything you need and more. Eastgate Mall

Here's a fun fact for you! Eastgate Shopping Centre has 2 000 free parking bays and 1 781 undercover bays! Another fun fact, it was also the country's first 'super-regional' shopping centre when it first opened in 1979. The complex is central and easily accessible via the major motorways that criss-cross the great city of Johannesburg. And did you know that the compound crossed municipal borders? The mall fell under the City Of Johannesburg and the other half under the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. However, in 2013, the boundary was adjusted by the Municipal Demarcation Board to move Eastgate fully into Ekurhuleni.
