Trip Advisor Contributor “Ruth O” recommends Australia fair Shopping Centre for “..all shopaholics!”

“Australia Fair is a shopping center stuffed with great bargains, restaurants and PARKING!! Free parking for the first 3 hours of your visit. (Hint - be sure to check this feature out and then keep the parking ticket handy as time flies when you are having fun!!). The fourth hour is EXPENSIVE. We found good prices on a variety of clothing - ladies', men's and children's, groceries, household goods, gifts, jewelry. It is centrally located - a bit difficult to get into the parking with the street construction, but worth the effort. Don't miss the street level shops which have the entrances from the sidewalk. Enjoy!! We did.”

However, Trip Advisor Senior Reviewer “Zogalog96” finds the Centre “Horrible.”

“Worst place ever, come here everyday after school and it is disgusting. An eyesore to Southport, horrible atmosphere and the only good thing there is the sushi near Woolworths.”

Another Trip Advisor Contributor “grandman2013” describes the Centre as “Fast becoming China Fair.”
“…The caucasian owned business are being asked to increase the rent to 300% of their current lease. They are disappearing and cheap Asian business's replacing them. Not my statement, just saying what I have been told by the business closing down. Free 4 hour parking has been reduced to 3 hours so the once pleasurable time of browsing, having a coffee and something to eat and maybe a movie, has now changed to a hurried shopping trip when you take into account, parking the car, going around the shops and getting your car out within the 3 hours. Many old shoppers like me are going to other shopping centres with free unlimited parking.”

Trip Advisor Reviewer “kendra h” found “Everything in one building” thanks to Australia Fair Shopping Centre.

“This mall has everything you could want in one spot the sales are terrific. Easy access to parking and entering the shops. So good went there twice.”
