Here we are and There we go.

Hello, everyone.
I heard a teacher said when you arriving at a shopping mall.
You could say Here we are or There we go to express you and someone finally arrived here.
But what's the difference between these phrases? And it's just two idioms?
Thank you!

    Only “Here we are” would make sense if what you meant was “We’ve arrived”.

    “There we go – all done!” is the sort of thing a mother bandaging a child’s grazed knee might say as she finished the job.

    But “There you go” is much more common. It even has its own dictionary listing: there you are (or go) | Lexico Dictionaries
