In Desperate Need of an Upgrade

It seems to be at least 15 years since the last upgrade, but it is still a good shopping centre in Southport. Food Hall is a bit lacking too. Worth the visit however.

Parking has just gone up...if u want the parking validated you need to go up to second level in the middle of the shops. No where near the parking. Coles is being upgraded and it feels like that whole end of tge shopping centre is like a dungeon. Half of the food court is empty...this place is well behind the... More

I live not far from here and will only go to Australia fair to see a movie. The shopping centre is old, with cheap crappy shops and their food hall is pretty average. I'd rather drive to pacific fair or ROBINA any day than go to Australia Fair.

Caught tram from Surfers to centre to go to Event Cinema to watch Lion and have Yum Cha. Spacious Centre in convenient location with heaps of parking. Easy to find outlets with numerous touch screen information booths. Thoroughly enjoyed Yum Cha at Top One Restaurant and thought Event Cinema great value at $8 a ticket, seats very comfortable and sound... More

Australia Fair offer lots of stores but there is a lack of ambiance. It is an old shopping centre with a fair maintenance. Good option for cheap movie tickets and food court but if you've be to Robina Town Centre and Pacific Fair you'll get disappointed so avoid expectations. It is a fair mall.

Tried to rip me off today . After paying for items and went to leave store I noted an item was not in my bag, went back to checkout and before I could say anything the lady handed me my missing item from a large full basket on the floor. So it was a deliberate attempt to rip me off... More

Big centre, still undergoing renovations but this didnt hinder our shopping at all. 5 minute tram ride or 15 minute walk from Meriton Serviced Apartments. Most shops the same as in Melbourne but some good bargains to be had.

Was staying up the road for a holiday. Was easy to park and find. I got a little lost inside but they had cool info desk to help. Loads of shops, eateries, cinemas and supermarkets.

A lot of stores were closed maybe because of the Australia Day festivity. We been there before and nothing changed from the previous visit. The location is excellent but the centre need an uplift. A lot of stores available and a varieties of businesses that provide different services. This is a good place to go if you will be around... More
