Go On. Take The Credit.

When it comes to shopping on the Gold Coast, we put retail therapy right up there as one of our favourite things to do. Our shopping centres are as big as some of the fashion names they carry, but we have plenty of one-off boutiques to pop into too. And it won’t matter if you prefer to add one of the latest international designer pieces to your collection, hunt for some high-street fashion or pick out something local from one of our Australian fashion brands. You can scour the outlets for a bargain, hit the markets for that fabulous vintage or fresh foodie find, or stumble upon a pop-up - we have shopping options to suit all shapes, sizes, tastes and budgets on the Gold Coast.
