Harbour Town refers to the shopping centre concept to collocate factory outlets in one centre. There are presently four such centres operating in Australia
. They are especially popular with tourists, although many locals also shop there.As at September 2009, there were four locations: Biggera Waters, on Queensland's Gold Coast; West Perth, in Western Australia; Adelaide Airport, in South Australia and at Water Front City, Docklands
A new 41,000 sq.m Harbour Town centre opened on 21 October 2008 in Melbourne's Docklands. It is located in the Waterfront City precinct, underneath the Southern Star Observation Wheel. When fully tenanted the new centre will feature over 200 stores as well as Australia's first Costco Warehouse Store, and like other Harbour Town centres, a majority of the stores will be outlets.
