Looking for a seemingly endless shopping holiday? Head to Gold Coast’s Harbour Town outlet shopping centre, the largest of its kind in Australia. This retail mecca is home to more than 240 stores selling brand-name items for a minimum discount of 30 per cent. You’ll also find boutiques, al fresco dining and family-friendly entertainment.
Get ready to fill your arms with bags as you go from one international store to the next, including Michael Kors, Polo Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss and Nike, as well as quality Australian brands, such as R.M. Williams and Tigerlily. The centre’s open-air design floods its shopping spaces with natural light and complements the range of dining options, from Zingara’s Kitchen to San Churro.
Harbour Town makes it easier to explore the Gold Coast’s famous sights with its on-site Tourism Lounge, where you can take advantage of complimentary services and a free tourist discount card. Combine your shopping trip with family-friendly fun at the nearby Wet’n’Wild Gold Coast and Warner Bros. Movie World theme parks.
Catch the free shuttle bus to Harbour Town, which picks up from four locations around the Gold Coast. You can also drive there in about 20 minutes from Surfers Paradise, catch the G:Link from one of 16 Gold Coast stations or ride one of five bus routes.
