The outlet center was as expected. The hospitality center was nice with a free coffee and info. We are not great shoppers but still managed to purchase a few things.

Decided to go shopping during our stay in Gold Coast. Went to Harbour Town by taking the public transport. It was convenient and easy to locate. The place offered a good variety of branded stuff at discounted price. My kids were happy to get some clothing and shoes which they did not manage to get back at home. It was a fruitful trip for hubby, with all the different sports brands around. There were several cafes and restaurants around if you need to fix your hungry pangs after all the walking.

recently went to harbour with a friend, wasn't dissapointed at all. An array of discounted stores with very reasonable prices. Complex is a little disjointed but helpful signs with maps are an added bonus as we got lost on many occasions. great service in most stores, a few need to work on customer service. All in all a pleasant experience, got a few bargains.. Would definitely return

We arrived Gold Coast on the 8 Jun 2013 & we had planned to go for any of the 3 theme parks. We didn't expect that there would be occasional raining showers during the winter season. Unfortunately, it rained lightly throughout the whole day on 10 Jun 2013, so my back up plan was to go SHOPPING! So we head off by taking the public bus transport & it was easy to locate the Harbour Town Outlet.

Harbour Town offers a good variety of branded products at discounted price. There were few sales persons in different shops that keep on promoting their items using their loud speakers. The prices were reasonably cheap especially the winter clothes. They also have nice summer clothes but limited pieces.

Overall, it's a good shopping experience for me. It's something different and the price is quite reasonably cheap for a budget traveler like me. There are a few cafes & restaurants in the shopping outlet. For Muslims, I appreciate & am very glad that there is Nandos restaurant which is Halal! I don't have to pack my own food from Hotel or worried about being hungry!! The price is reasonable....not too pricey but taste as good as any other regular Nandos restaurants. :)

Hi there and thankyou for reviewing Harbour Town!

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your shopping experience and were able to find some great bargains.

Harbour Town is certainly a great wet weather destination and many visitors to the Gold Coast choose to partake in a spot of shopping on days when it is not really suitable for the beach or theme parks. Having said that, the design of the Centre is such that shoppers are able to enjoy the beautiful Gold Coast sunshine in our palm lined malls or shelter from showers easily throughout the Centre, as such we are really an all weather destination!

We do hope to welcome you to Harbour Town again in the near future and you may be interested to know for any return trip that we have two other halal restaurants in Centre and also a prayer room facility.

Thanks again for your review!

Great if you strike a wet day on your trip. Many shops (more than SA) and prices are OK. We had a list of things that we needed along with a couple of special buys. Good day. Bought tea at the butcher on the way out great meat and value. :)
