Along with being a foodies heaven, it’s also a paradise for shoppers. Let’s uncover the top shopping areas in Broadbeach.

Let’s start with the biggest, which is Pacific Fair (https://www.pacificfair.com.au), a large sprawling indoor and outdoor mall which is an easy place to while away the best part of day simply wandering, browsing and snacking. It features many major retailers and brands such as Calvin Klein, BVLGARI, Carla Zampatti, Chanel, Coach, Country Road, Diesel, David Jones, Ella Bache, Fossil, Georg Jenson, Givenchy, Gucci, H & M, Hermes, Harrolds, Hugo Boss, Kiehl’s, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Sephora and man, many more.

Pacific Fair is located across from Jupiters Casino and a ten-minute stroll from the center of Broadbeach which is Surf Parade. Along either side of Surf Parade you’ll find a mix of eateries and some quite unique fashion stores.

Victoria Avenue which comes off Surf Parade offers a relaxed pedestrian street as it becomes Broadbeach Mall featuring shopping options on either side. Niecon Plaza (http://nieconplaza.com.au) is a small shopping plaza offering some tasty cafes, a book store and some other services. Looking to the other side and you have Oasis Shopping Centre (http://www.oasisshoppingcentre.com) which features a range of fashion retailers, beauty services, cafes, discount stores, travel agencies and a major supermarket, Woolworths. You can also catch the mono-rail from here which takes you directly to Jupiters Casino.
