History of Harbour Town

The Harbour Town outlet shopping adventure began on the Gold Coast in December 1999 when The Lewis Land Group of Companies opened Australia's first (and still largest) purpose-built brand direct outlet shopping centre at Biggera Waters, 15 minutes north of Surfers Paradise.

The phenomenal success of Harbour Town Gold Coast attracted investment by ING Real Estate, part of the Dutch-based ING Group, one of the world's largest financial services providers and real estate developers.

The Lewis Land - ING partnership then expanded Harbour Town to other key centres in Australia, opening two new outlet centres in late 2003 in South Australia and Western Australia. A fourth Harbour Town Centre opened at Waterfront City, Melbourne Docklands on 21 October 2008

About Outlet Shopping

Brand Direct Outlets sell quality brands at prices permanently below regular retail prices.

Brand Direct Outlets are owned by the manufacturer and produce most of the goods sold in the outlet store where you can save everyday.

Outlet Stores, Off-Price and Clearance Stores stock end of season, clearance lines, sample ranges and seconds as well as stock designed and manufactured specifically for outlet shopping. For your convenience some stores have a selection of new season stock at regular retail prices. Ask a retail assistant to show you their new season range.
