The Woolworths store is very good. There are not enough good food outlets for more choice. One coffee shop told us that 2 coffees would be half an hour as they only had one staff member. If you order coffee at any of the other...More

The strand shopping centre is located along the beach and has everything you could need when on holidays. Very clean with both Aldi and Woolworths, a great discount store, various retail boutiques and more. You will also find the library there. Very close to accommodation.

It’s small and lacking compared to other 5 Star shopping centres around the Gold Coast area, but it has what you need to get you by.

Went here for a neal and while the food was great the shopping centre was average, some not so bad shops but very disappointed by the atmosphere. So many better shopping centres in the region. Tweed City is vastly better.
