Affordable souvenirs / Shopping Centre Pacific Fair?

HI there,

Staying in Kingscliff 5 nights but wanting to drive to GC for day trip so I don't want to waste a lot of time shopping but have been advised Pac Fair is worth visiting. Any idea why?

We're from Melbourne so we are not short of shopping centres! We do however like to purchase souvenirs (t-shirts mostly).

Can anyone recommend where we can find affordable/quality? Happy to drive around (will have rental car).

Many thanks!

We're you after anything specific as Gold Coast souvenirs?

Aside from a few surf shops, I don't think there's anything at Pac Fair you wouldn't have in the Melbourne.

If you're just after t-shirts that have 'Gold Coast' on them, the main strip of Surfers has numerous Australiana type of souvenir places.

If its for kids, I'd suggest Hard Rock for 'location' t-shirts.

Pacific Fair is just a big shopping centre ... that's it, nothing special. And as KVE said, go right into Surfers Paradise for T-Shirt type souvenirs.

Be aware the Gold Coast Hwy is being dug up for transport work... it may be difficult to get through quickly.

There's some good T-Shirt Outlet shops in Ashmore - just west of Surfers Paradise. Worth a look while your cruising around.

Central Park Plaza, 12 Central Park Avenue, Ashmore
