Queensland will make shopping enthusiasts feel right at home with a wide range of retail options available.
Money talks in Brisbane and the Gold Coast with a magnificent selection of top notch department stores, luxury goods retailers and designer fashion boutiques to browse through. In Brisbane, Queen Street Mall and Edward Street are the prime retail thoroughfares, each lined with a huge range of retail options. Head to the upscale suburbs of New Farm, Teneriffe or Paddington for a selection of funky shops, antique stores and fashion boutiques set within vibrant neighbourhood settings.
The Gold Coast is known for its upscale shopping too. Shop in comfort at Marina Mirage where eager shoppers will find an enjoyable selection of men’s and women’s clothing shops as well as jewellery stores and other name brand retailers. Not far away, Surfers Paradise has its own selection of upscale shops and boutiques, all near the many beach attractions that the Gold Coast is famous for.
Quaint gift shops, art galleries and markets can be found in cities big and small. Stroll down an ocean side esplanade as you duck in an out of the local stores along the way, or head to the lush hinterland regions and admire the many organic or all natural offerings, from health and beauty products to hand-made art, jewellery and gifts.
