Marina Mirage Shopping On The Gold Coast
COVID-19 Pandemic & This Website
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a huge impact on local Gold Coast businesses, which rely heavily on visitors from Queensland, interstate and overseas.
During this time, it is hard to keep the website fully up to date with all the changes. In the meantime here are some resources for visitors. Our main booking partners for hotels and for tours, tickets, theme parks and activities are keeping everything up to date, so please use those resources in the meantime.
Travel Information for Queensland Visitors - Queensland Tourist Safety Information - regularly updated, official website.
COVID-19 FAQ's For Activities, Tours, Cruises & Theme Park Tickets - General Ticket & Pass FAQs and COVID-19 Travel Update.
Thank you for your understanding and patience at this really difficult time.

At Marina Mirage shopping is a pleasure not a chore!
Shopping Centre Details
The Marina Mirage Experience
During 2008 and 2009 Marina Mirage underwent major refurbishments which caused a lot of disruption and a few changes to the tenancies.
The new Marina Mirage is all about the big names. International brands and the really well known local Australian brands are on the menu these days. Some of the local boutiques you may have seen in visits past have had to move on to other venues, pressured by the big rents.
Some of the brands you can find at Marina Mirage Shopping Centre include:
If you are visiting to purchase, make sure you bank balance and credit cards are ready for the assault. This is definitely NOT where you will find bargains. This is full price, full service end of town.
The shops are generally open from 10am to 6pm. The restaurants and some of the shops stay open later, but you need to check that with individual shops.
Eateries at Marina Mirage that are my personal favourites include the sensational Omeros Bros Seafood restaurant for lunch and dinner and for a quick stop Max Brenner's Chocolate emporium (that's not really the name, but I think it is a chocolate emporium!).
There are certainly plenty of choices and styles of restaurants to choose from at Marina Mirage Shopping centre, from a casual light meal through to some of the top offerings on the Gold Coast.
Marina Mirage Farmers Markets
Marina Mirage used to host the Marina Mirage Farmers markets on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Saturdays of each month.
These markets were one of my personal favourites for local fresh and handmade produce. It was a local gourmet delight!
Unfortunately, they were moved out during the rennovations and not moved back, a new home was found for them right next door at Fisherman's Wharf, but after just one market these were abandoned due to the location of the new Gold Coast Police helicopter.
Sadly, these markets don't look like they will return, but if they do... I'll let you know!
What's Around Marina Mirage?
Marina Mirage is in Main Beach as you drive along Seaworld Drive towards The Spit.

Marina Mirage Facilities
As well as the shopping centre and fabulous cafes and restaurants, there is a full marina with both commercial and private boats. Many of the Gold Coast boat tours and trips are based in this marina including the Tall Ship cruises and some of the Gold Coast whale watching tour operators.
Outside the shopping complex there is also a wharf tavern, Hogs Breath Cafe and other family oriented dining experiences!
