Welcome to The Oasis Shopping Centre, where beachside bliss meets a vibrant world of culinary delights and retail therapy right in the heart of Broadbeach.

If you’re craving an escape from the sun-soaked sands into the cool, chic, glittering interiors of the best Gold Coast shopping centres, you’re in the right place.

The Oasis is the retail hub of Broadbeach – and for good reason. Here, we dive into the intoxicating shopping vibes threaded through this must-visit mall and why it's the best addition to any GC getaway itinerary.

The Oasis: A Brief History

In the post-World War II era, the Gold Coast saw a surge of development, drawing servicemen to its sandy shores.

By the late 1940s, Broadbeach boasted just a handful of residents. Then, in 1955, the landscape transformed with the emergence of Lennon’s Broadbeach Hotel, heralded as an oasis in the desert.

Fast forward to 1989: The Oasis and its iconic monorail graced the scene, offering a seamless link between beach, shopping, and entertainment hotspots. The Oasis Monorail, affectionately known as Gol’Coasta, redefined connectivity, whisking passengers between the coast's glittering attractions.

Following a rejuvenation in 2014, sourced from tracks and trains from Merry Hill Shopping Centre in England, the monorail bid farewell in 2017, leaving behind a legacy of effortless travel and unforgettable memories.
