Harbour Town is an outlet shopping centre with over 240 stores with brand direct outlets and clearance stores.
Big name brands include international labels and Australian brands, such as Ralph Lauren, Oroton, R.M. Williams, Victoria Secret, Nike, Tommy Hilfiger and many more.
The shopping centre is set up as an open air mall with window shopping for the outlets.
Harbour Town is the first purpose-built factory outlet shopping centre in Australia, opening in 1999. The centre has had revamps since, updating the facilities and improving car parking spaces.
The latest revamp launched its latest redevelopment in December 2018, with the new Harbour Town Eats. We were a month early for the launch, but the eating section of Harbour Town was already operating near the 14-screen cinema complex.
The car parking spaces is often an issue for locals and tourists. Trying to find a park can be a challenge, especially during popular holiday periods.
