Harbour Town

Harbour Town is a shopping centre concept that incorporates multiple factory outlets in one centre. The centres are especially popular with locals and tourists. As of February 2021, there are two locations owned and operated under the Harbour Town brand: Biggera Waters, on Queensland's Gold Coast, and at Adelaide Airport, in South Australia. Harbour Town centres also operated in Perth, Western Australia and Docklands, Victoria before being sold off and rebranded.
