Shopping suggestions needed

Our family is going to Sunshine Coast for one week's holiday in June. We have never been to Sunshine Coast (we went to Brisbane and Gold Coast last year) and would need some shopping advice. Are there any shopping centres that are similar to Harbour Town in Gold Coast for example? Any good malls? I know we should be outdoor but our usual routine is one day outdoor and one day shopping...clothes, shoes, bags, food...without these I can't call it a holiday!

Anyway, suggestions would be most appreciated. We do love Harbour Town so if there's something like that on Sunshine Coast that would be great!

THanks

Unfortunately there is no outlet shopping like Harbourtown or DFO in the Sunshine Coast. That said, there is Sunshine Plaza which has a similar atmosphere. Mind you, when your there in June there is a good chance the end of year sales will be on so you will be in shoppers Nirvana.

www.sunshineplaza.com

Also there will be the Eumundi Markets open on Wednesday and Sturdays till about 2pm. Definitely worth a visit.

for something different you could have a day out in Caloundra. the main st is a bargain shoppers paradise that time of year. it has mutitude of bag, shoe and dress shops. prices a lot lower than that of the plaza as rent is a fraction of the price, hence the lower prices.

It's really just the Sunshine Plaza shopping centre on the Sunshine Coast, not much else however why don't you swing by Brisbane Airport DFO on your way to the coast.

Theres really only the Sunshine Plaza which is really nice with the river / stream running through the middle. Eumundi Markes on Wednesday & Saturday is also good if youre into that dort of thing. Noosa Civic at Noosa is also worth a look if your staing up that way but muc smaller than Sunshine Plaza
