Surfers Paradise has approximately 14 shopping centres and arcades within its vicinity. The best way to see all of these is by donning on a pair of comfy shoes and exploring the Surfers streets yourself.
The shopping in Surfers Paradise offers both retail and duty free with an extensive range of designer boutiques including Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Coach, Dior, Bettina Liano and the like.
Most of the stores unlike the rest of the Gold Coast are open for late night shopping 7 days a week. So if you aren't used to the usual 5pm shutting time Australia has, then head to Surfers Paradise to continue on!
What to buy: As mentioned above, expect to discover designer boutiques, duty free stores, clothing including desiger surf and street wear and the like.
What to pay: Surfers Paradise stores a full retail or duty free so expect to pay full price unless you can supply the duty free stores with a passport and boarding pass.

This is the stylish "Cult" shop next door to Billabong and, on the other side is Rip Curl so, it matters little what you want in surfwear, if you head for the back of Burleigh you're sure to find something to please you.

At the back of Burleigh Heads there's a bunch of large surf shops, one of which is the world famous Billabong which my eldest son just happens to work for at the time of writing.
There's a group of shops taking up a few blocks and this just happens to be Billabong's second biggest outlet (after their seconds shop).
What to buy: Clothing is the main thing here though they also have associated surfing gear like boards, hand paddles etc.
What to pay: Like name brands everywhere they tend to be less cheap than you can find in discount stores but, hey, you want to be up with the style don't you?

Lots of shopping malls in Surfers have discount vouchers at the info desks for tourists, you just need to show some ID to get the vouchers.
Places such as Pacific Fair, Australia Fair, Chevron Renaissance and Centro Surfers Paradise all have discount vouchers available.
Another good site to go to is http://www.pointout.com.au/
You fill in your address details and they sent me out a booklet FULL of vouchers!! Things such as a free shaker if you visit Draculas, a free picture if you visit Old Time Photos, $2 off King Tutts Putt Putt, a free t-shirt if you ride the Vomatron, $2 off Infinity admission, discounts on meals, the list goes on…
I love free stuff!!

This has many Gold Coast shopping malls and markets, their addresses, a bit of about what they sell and their opening hours, plus links to their actual websites.
A really handy little website if you are a shopaholic like me!! :)

Marina Mirage just north of Surfers on the Southport Spit, is a great place to go to spend an afternoon checking out all the flash tourist shops :o) Also they have alfresco dining and entertainment on the weekend. This is definately a must to visit.

What NOT to buy : Souveniers. It's very expensive to buy souveniers here. Get them at Pacific Fair or Goldcoast shopping centres.
What to pay: hhmm... it depends.... I spent abt A$200 here... Got a great deal at Nike boutique... Bought a pair of running shoes at A$50 only (costs more than S$100 in Singapore)....

Australia Fair is my favourite shopping centre to go to. Is has most of the same shops that Pac Fair has got, but in a more convenient and compact centre. It is also the only fully enclosed and air-conditioned shopping centre with plenty of undercover car parks available.
It also has its own cinema complex, plenty of fast food restaurants and cafes'.
