Hilton lies between Pietermaritzburg and the popular beauty spots of Howick Falls and Karkloof. The picturesque village of Hilton, regarded as the “Gateway to the Midlands” boasts a unique shopping experience at The Quarry Centre, which surpasses all expectations and boasts first class tenants.

Visitors can choose from over 45 retail stores which include our anchor tenants Woolworths, Super Spar, ÇNA and Clicks. We have branches of Nedbank, Standard Bank and FNB as well as ABSA and Capitec Atm’s.  Nino’s Café and Jaxx will satisfy anything from your cappuccino fix, to a beautifully prepared and served meal.  Our unique retail stores offer anything from gift and toys to beautiful clothes and accessories, furniture and that something special for your pets.

The Quarry Centre was purchased in April 2011 by a dynamic group of shareholders who were motivated to not only re-design the centre, but re-ignite this iconic link to the Midlands. With the extensive improvements to the aesthetics and tenancy of The Quarry Centre, you can be sure to enjoy something unique each time you visit us.

The Centre has over 136 parking bays which ensure hassle free parking.

We have 24 hour security guards as well as CCTV which is monitored onsite for real time activities. Every endeavour is made to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our valuable customers.


The centre has specially allocated parking bays for Mom’s or Dad’s and Tots, which hopefully assists in the off-loading of children safely. We also have baby changing stations at each end of the centre which can be used by either mom or dad.


Join us on every Tuesday for tea.


Our centre manager (Lynda Lees) is available every weekday morning from 08h00 – 13h00.
