The shopaholic in you will be singing "Hallelujah" as you walk along this gigantic centre of over 220 stores with the best of local and international fashion.
As if the idea of shopping all day doesn't already make your heart flutter; Harbour Town ups the game by giving tourists a dedicated lounge where they can have coffee, tea, and more importantly, a discount card. Yes, you get discounts on already great prices. Remember that these factory outlets sell the items at well below recommended retail prices.
When you've had your fill of shopping, head out to one of their many restaurants or cafes to recharge. But if you want a different kind of dining experience, try the Gold Lounge at their cinema. You don't just get dinner and a show.

Paradise Jet Boating
Shop 7b Mariners Cove Marina 60 Seaworld Drive, Queensland 4217
What happens when you mix exciting theme park rides with a gigantic jet boat? Two words: Broadwater Adventure.
