Robina Town Centre Mall

But I think my favourite has to be Robina Town Centre Mall, and it's not just because I live next door to it. Honest. For me, it simply has the most to offer in retail, dining and entertainment and is set out in a real shopper friendly and visually pleasing way.


It is so vast and has so many stores that even after a few visits I was still discovering areas that I didn't know existed before I honestly think if you had a good look and browse in every store you could spend weeks and still not see everything. It even has two massive woolworths at opposite ends it is that big by the time you get to the other end you may need to do another weekly shop, hehe.

The main large department stores are Woolworths, Myer, David Jones, Target, Big W, Coles and K Mart. Not bad for all under one roof? They also have a food market area which sells fresh fruit and veg and has a butchers and bakers.

The way it is laid out is really good for just wondering around as the top floor is in a circuit, which is the best way for a shopping centre to be in my opinion. Also, with the high ceilings and large wide walkways, even when it is very busy (which when it's raining and at the weekends it is) it's not so crowded that you want to run out and cry. It has a huge food court in the centre, too, with all the usual fast food delights. Also if you do get a little weary, there are lots of sofas and comfy seating dotted around the mall, including massage chairs.

It has a really good variety of shops covering everything for clothing, toiletries, boys, girls, kids, home, food, games, gadgets, entertainment, hairdressers and beauty places and electronics - which are all a good size too. Plus it has more coffee shops than you could shake a stick at - although not sure why anyone would want to do that. My favourites are Muffin Break, Gloria Jeans and Shingle Inn I always find the best coffee and friendliest staff in them. Oh and if you love coffee then they have just opened a new Nespresso Boutique.

There is also an Event Cinema, AMF Bowling Alley and Fenix Fitness all on site. Seriously if they had apartments I would move in and wouldn't ever need to leave. They have fun balls on the lake where the kids can walk on water, plus trampolines too and often they have kids' events and live music evening entertainment for the grown ups.

For food and drink you are totally spoilt for choice along the promenade, which is located around the lake. Great views, especially at night, when it is all lit up. There are about 20 plus restaurants in total including Grilled, Groove Train, Max Brenner, Yum Cha and Nandos plus many others offering every kind of cuisine such as Japanese, Sushi, Greek, Pizza, Steak, Chinese and more. I have eaten at most of them and I have never had a bad meal plus there are options to suit every kind of budget.

Because of the cinema many of the restaurants offer meal and movie deals such as a main meal and ticket for around $25. Tuesdays at the cinema is cheap Tuesdays where adult tickets are just $11. Thursday evenings are late-night shopping where the centre is open till 9pm.

The promenade also has a large playground for the kids it can be pretty busy at peak times but it's gated and with soft ground and lots of climbing frames, my niece certainly loves it.
