Best Gold Coast shopping outlets for bargains

Are you over paying full price every time you go to the shops and want a better alternative . . .


Well, start shopping like the locals do when they’re after a bargain and get over to some the best Gold Coast shopping outlets in town.


I know what its like having to walk into a shop and be blown away by the price of some things. So, if you are like me and can’t find what you want or need online or simply need to try something on, or are not quite sure what you are after but still don’t want to get taken to the cleaners every time you buy something.


Then it is about time you found out where some of these Gold Coast shopping bargain outlets are, where you can save a buck just like the rest of the locals do.


Harbour Town

This is by far one of the most popular Gold Coast shopping bargain outlets as they have it all! There are a total of 220 stores in one complex, from specific brand outlets to clearance stores that offer a rough minimum off 30% retail prices. You have big brands there from Nike, Rivers, Oroton, R.M Williams, Ralph Loren, Ugg and many more.

Harbour town is the pick of all the Gold Coast shopping bargain outlets as you have all those stores along with a movie theatre, cafes and restaurants. Meaning you can spend a whole day here and not get bored, that is of course if shopping is your thing.

Harbour Town Shopping Centre

Trade Secret

Trade Secret is a clothes outlet of Big Brands. Small prices (which is their slogan) and which means you are certain to score top brands from all over the world with discounts up to 60% off!

This is one of the Gold Coast shopping outlets you should certainly check out also for Birthday and Christmas shopping and their outlets are at:

– Burleigh Homespace, 1 Santa Maria Court, Burleigh Waters, QLD 4220

– 502 Hope Island Road, Helensvale QLD 4212

– 107 Ferry Road, Southport QLD 4215


Billabong Factory

Also known as the Billabong Seconds Outlet, this would have to be my favourite bargain outlet, as in the same centre, you also have a Ripcurl, Hurley and a Sideways shopping outlet. So if you are into your surf brands and surf wear, here would be the place to do all your birthday and Christmas shopping where you can save a bucket load!

12 Central Park Avenue

Gold Coast, Queensland

(07) 5509 0101

Opening hours 9:00am – 5:00pm


Sideways Surf Outlet

Sideways stocks a range of surf wear along with surfboards, skateboards sunglasses and other accessories. With extremely low and competitive prices on surf wear, be sure to not past them as you have the opportunity to pick up some real bargains.

As I mentioned before, there is a Sideways Surf outlet in Ashmore, right by the Billabong factory. Although if you are looking for something more local they also have an outlet in both Tweed and Underwood.

Tweed Heads South

28-30 Greenway Drive (corner of Traders Way) – (07) 55 130 919


1-2/16 Central Park Ave – (07) 55 646 690


Shop 5, 1-15 Lexington Road – 07 3423 3306

Now if you really can’t find what you are after from these few Gold Coast shopping bargain outlets, then you can always head on up north to Brisbane where you can spend a day picking out bargains at the DFO (Direct Factory Outlet). However that is an hours drive north of the Gold Coast.
