A big shopping centre with NOT much in it...a little run down and the car park is very confusing if you get out the wrong lift.

Older style shopping centre with a good range of stores. Food court offers something for everyone and you can pop in to the movies on a wet day.

This isn't the first time I've visited Australia Fair yet I always get lost in there! Maybe I have incredibly bad sense of direction or it's the layout. I'm talking losing my way to losing my car. The air conditioning in there struggles. The parking should be longer for free since I'm in a maze. The food court is good... More

I personally like this shopping centre above most others except the upper level parking which has been closed off on the roof for general shoppers.This is not good as some times in busy periods there is a shortage of parking and you drive around for ages trying to fins a spot,which annoys anybody.PLEASE OPEN THE ROOF PARKING AGAIN.

Australia Fair has not been advancing much in the last few years. Each time I visited the centre in recent times it seemed the only thing new was a hole where a business used to be so much so that I had christened it "dead mall walking" This phenomenon is not unique to this shopping precinct, since the GFC many...

We constantly shop here as it has a great variety of shops with friendly staff,cinema with great selection of times and prices, some amazing ethnic food eateries. 3 hours free parking and extended if you also go to the movies. Yes it is no Robina or Pacific Fair but sometimes a busy sterile shopping centre has its downside to. If... More

Have been coming here for 20 years. Good selection of cafes and good places. And good variety of specialty shops. It definitely needs a BigW or Target! And totally needs a full refurbishment, it is living in the 90's still. Haha. All good they are underway with a new look now.

This place is getting a makeover at present. many of the stores are small and are low end. It has two supermarkets and some useful Services such as a Post Office. It lacks high end stores.
