5 Best Shopping Destinations in Australia*

When going to Australia, it’s only natural that you want to experience everything: beaches, parties, food, the heat, and of course, shopping. Every city in Australia has something special to offer: markets, malls, high-end department stores, and thrift shops, and for those who aren’t familiar with them, shopping in Australia can be tough. We’re here to help you have the best shopping experience, which is why we’re listing five places which you should visit and shop at.


Perth is the perfect place for those who love elegance, style, and above all – luxury. Over 900 shops in the city centre guarantee that you’ll find something you’ll fall in love with. For those who aren’t afraid to spend a bit more, King Street is the spot to check out. Lovely 19th-century European-style architecture aside, the hottest and most luxurious labels from all over the world have a store here: Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Armani… You name it. Weekends are special too, as there are weekend markets all over the city.


The biggest city in Australia really has a lot to offer to its visitors, and fashionistas are particularly in love with it. Pitt Street Mall is the main shopping centre and it’s located in Sydney’s business district, so you won’t be able to miss it. You will have a chance to buy items from some of the world’s most famous brands such as Gap and Topshop, but for those who are looking for something authentic, there are stores like Country Road and Sheike. Keep in mind that it does get really busy so you might want to arm yourself with patience or pick a time when it’s less crowded. 


With Brisbane, it’s all about the Queen, so the best mall to check out is Queen Street Mall. This is a pedestrian mall and it’s the city’s shopping hotspot as it’s located in the very heart of the city. This is a nice place where you can go with your family and friends and find everything you’re looking for: bargains, high-end shopping, or just fun and delicious meals. Keep your eyes and ears open for special events, as over the year more than a thousand events take place. For those who are looking for excitement as well as shopping, there is also a casino in the Mall.


Melbourne is Australia’s top city for shopping, and Bourke Street Mall is the most popular mall in the city. If, however, you’re looking for something less crowded but equally amazing, check out the shopping centre in South Yarra, an inner suburb of Melbourne which is less intimidating than the city centre itself. The best thing is that the first two or three hours of parking might be free if you make a purchase. For those who aren’t driving, trams and trains will get you there safely, and you won’t have to walk for more than a few minutes, which is a huge plus when you think about how hot it gets in Australia.

Gold Coast

The City of Gold Coast is the place to visit if you’re in love with beaches and would like to take a break from shopping to go for a swim. Those who are always on the lookout for great bargains will love Gold Coast’s Harbour Town, a great spot with plenty of outlet stores which bargain hunters will fall in love with. Weekend markets are held all over the coast with many local retailers that offer something different and unique.

Australia is breathtakingly beautiful and its cities are bursting with life. Big cities are always busy, but this kind of activity is what makes you feel alive because there is always something to do and something going on. It doesn’t matter if you’re here for some sightseeing or serious shopping, there are many opportunities you’ll love.
