“Harbour Town Shopping Centre”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Every time we go to the Gold Coast we always visit Harbour Town shops. It is well worth the short drive, and we always come away with a bargain ! Een my husband, (who is not a shopper) enjoys a few hours there, people watching, having a coffee or a snack. Definitely take time to go there and grab a bargain !

“Let down”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Excited at the thought of a bargain the whole family piled into the car and headed to harbour town, well when we got there most off the shops had very little discount and the first 3 stores we entered where I fact full priced regular shops, I didn't find anything at all for myself but luckily I have a 1 year old so we did buy a lot for her but again not many of the stores where discounted greatly

Hi Emma,

Thank you for taking the time to share your Harbour Town experience. We are disappointed to hear you felt “let down” during your recent visit as we strive to make the shopping journey worthwhile for the whole family. Harbour Town is home to over 220 stores and while most of them are brand direct factory outlets, we also offer the convenience of a number of specialty stores which are not required to adhere to our outlet pricing promise. Our outlet stores are clearly identified in our Centre Guide and we encourage you to refer to the colour-coded map next time so you know what to expect from the individual stores.

With regards to our outlet pricing, Harbour Town’s direct retail outlet stores all offer a percentage of their outlet stock at a minimum of 30% off the original retail price. While some stores do offer a selection/range of current stock at full price, it is not unusual to see discounts of up to 70% off on big name brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren and Oroton. Many of our stores also offer other specials such as buy-one-get-one-free or further savings on already discounted items.

We would love to welcome you to Harbour Town again in the near future and we invite you to visit our Tourism Lounge to enjoy a complimentary cup of tea or coffee and collect your free Tourism Club Card which offers further discounts at a great range of stores.

Thank you again.

“This is a must visit”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

If one is to visit just one shopping centre on the Gold Coast whilst on holiday then this is the one. All the shops are Outlet stores and most large labels and stores are there. Prices are as much as 70% off normal retail. There is a movie complex, supermarkets and cafes galore.

“Enjoyed the shopping”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

While the men were out for deep sea fishing (thankfully because Harbour Town doesn't have a lot of bloke shops for the guys), us ladies actually spent hours shopping at Harbour Town! We're not so into branded, hence we really enjoyed hunting and browsing through shops after shops for good bargains.

Managed to buy some really nice quality boots at only AUD5, the mums had a good time shopping (especially in Target) and we bought heaps of clothings! 90% down feather jacket for only AUD30?? And you get the second item at 50% off? Such clothings easily costs AUD100 back here in our country.

There's also this Asian convenience store (Hong Yun, with the red color signboard) near the fresh fruits and veggies store where you can get a lot of asian spieces/sauces such as chilli, satay, curry, laksa etc if you're feeling homesick and would like to cook some home cooked dishes with the sauces/spices which are not easily available elsewhere in Australia, this is a must go shop as well.

We wished we had more time to spend in Harbour Town, will visit again next time!
