Australia is a country with a high cost of living and a
lot is expensive there. This fact alone discourages a
little when shopping, but looking more closely, the
reality is that there are things more expensive than in
Brazil and there are things much cheaper as well. The
important thing is to know how to go to the right place
to shop and always convert to real, so that you can
analyze whether the purchase is really advantageous.
The city's main shopping spot is downtown Perth. Perth
is home to world famous stores and Australian stores
across the country. When shopping, head to
Murray Street Mall and Hay Street Mall,
which are two of the city's main shopping streets; there
you will find a huge variety of stores and some of the
main chains in the country, such as Myer, JB Hi-Fi and
Target. In the region, visit London Court, a very
charming little place that, even if it doesn't make you
a good purchase, will make you a good coffee. If you are interested in retro style items, just visit
InternetAges where you can find vintage men's sweaters.
Walking along Hay St, do not limit yourself to the
busiest point, which is close to Forrest Place, also
walk to the westernmost stretch, which has luxury
designer stores like Gucci and an Apple store.
For those who don't miss the opportunity to go to an
outlet, Perth has its own, Watertown.
It is not a giant, but it has good stores to find
products with lower prices than conventional stores,
especially if it is promotion season. If you miss Brazil
and that desire to find a Brazilian product, the tip is
to go to Kakula’s, a market with an
incredible amount of products of natural origin, not
only those sold in Brazil but also in other parts of the
world! It is a place where you can find farofa, Guarana,
and even paçoquinha!
A large mall with many stores, as well as a cinema
and a food court is the Westfield Carousel.
This mall has great options, including a so-called
KMart, a very famous department store
in Australia, where you can find countless products at
great prices! Books, clothes and even appliances are
very good prices! Another mall that is also worth a
visit, a little more for its architecture and atmosphere
than for the stores themselves, is Sorrento Quay
; go to the place to have a meal, have an ice cream and
enjoy a sunny day.
Some popular Australian stores in the country:
Dadid Jones -
Myer department store -
Target department store -
KMart department store - Cheap
JB Wi-fi department store -
Dick Smith electronics
- Priceline electronics - Cosmetics and beauty products
Cotton On, City Beach - Clothing
When you make a purchase over $ 300 at the same store,
up to 60 days before leaving Australia you can claim a
refund of taxes paid on products purchased. The process
to receive this money back starts right at the purchase,
when asking the store attendant to give you the invoice
that specifies the refund amount. When leaving the
country, you must go to the airport in possession of the
purchased products (you may need to show them) and show
the invoices at a service station that is just after the
immigration pass. The tax refund inspector usually asks
to see the products purchased, but if you have checked
them in the luggage that goes in the hold of the plane,
just explain this.
The tax return is made very quickly and simply, and
you can obtain it through credit on the card of your
choice. See here the Tax Free rules and
how to get your money back.
Hay Street Mall
Neighboring Murray St, Hay Street is one of the main
thoroughfares of Perth's CBD. It is busy day and night,
has shops, varied restaurants, nightclubs and due to the
constant flow of pedestrians, the street is closed to
vehicles in some sections. It works like an outdoor
mall, where you can find a little bit of everything.
Among the stores that are present on the street are
Target, Fodafone, JB Hi-fi, Nike, Pandora, Priceline
etc. On its westernmost stretch are some luxury stores,
such as Gucci and Louis Vuitton.
As the street is quite old and one of the first in
Perth, it has some buildings that were important when
the city was founded, such as Perth Town Hall, London
Court, Melbourne Hotel, His Majesty's Theater and
Perth CBD stores operate during business hours
similar to those in Brazil, but on Thursdays, stores are
open until later, until 8:00 pm, 9:00 pm.
Kakulas is a tiny market in Perth, but incredible,
where you can find a huge variety of natural products
such as grains, dried fruits and nuts. The most curious
thing about this market is that it sells several
products that we find in Brazilian supermarkets and that
are unusual on the Australian's menu, so it is a place
to really find articles from other parts of the world.
In addition to the Brazilian coffee they sell, you can
still find farofa, guava, paçoca and even açaí! Worth a
pass to buy a snack or complement the lunch menu.

Did you travel to Australia and want to do some
shopping? A good idea is to go to KMart, a chain of
department stores that sells products at great prices.
Not everything in the place is produced with incredible
quality, but you can find products at great prices,
especially if you have time to browse the store calmly.
There you can find, for example, toasters for as little
as $ 7.50, shirts for $ 5 and great books for $ 10.
The place sells clothes, appliances, decorative items,
shoes, cosmetics, stationery and computers. No mistake,
the store is great to save money and find cheap
London Court is a commercial building located in the
financial district of Perth that was built in 1937. The
place has few shops and what really stands out is its
architecture, characteristic of the Tudor style. Passing
by the front of the building, you will probably notice
that its architecture differs from the others and
somewhat resembles medieval buildings. In its two
facades are curious details, such as some coats of arms
London Court is located between Hay St and St
George's Terrace and has souvenir shops, clothing
stores, a map shop and a UGG shop, as well as a
cafeteria. As there are few shops, it is not the type of
place you will go to if you want to do a lot of
shopping, but around London Court there are several
great stores! It is worth visiting the place for its
charm and to have a coffee!
Murray Street Mall
Murray St is one of Perth's main streets and a place
you can't miss on your walk through the city center.
Murray is in the heart of Perth and in addition to being
one of the oldest streets since its foundation, it
houses offices, banks and is part of the commercial hub
of the city; it has many stores and several shopping
arcades, better known as "arcades". Murray St frequently
hosts events and cultural movements and is always chosen
by street artists to make their presentations.
For those who want to shop, it is an excellent
choice, because at Murray and its neighbor Hay St you
can find just about everything, from clothes to medicine
and sports products.
Due to the continuous movement of pedestrians and
diversity of commerce, the street is closed to vehicles
and functions as an open-air mall. Among the
establishments installed on the site, we can highlight
Myer (a huge department store), Zara, City Beach,
Topshop, Vodafone and David Jones.
The Sorrento Quay Boardwalk is an entertainment area
close to Perth beach, where you will find a shopping
mall, several restaurants, snack bars, outdoor areas, an
artificial beach, a children's park and more. It is a
leisure area with a cheerful atmosphere, great for those
who are with family and looking for a pleasant place to
stroll, have a meal or simply enjoy a different day.
There are several restaurant options and there you will
find everything from fast foods to exclusive restaurants
and ice cream parlors. It is not one of the most famous
places in the city, but it is certainly a very nice
place to stroll and even do some shopping.
Tip: Sorrento Quay is very close to the Aquarium of
Western Australia, so take advantage of the trip to the
aquarium to get to know it.
Watertown Brand Outlet Center
Watertown is a Perth outlet, that shopping center
that has stores that sell products for less than
conventional stores. The products are often from
previous collections and have limited sizes or models,
but for those looking for real bargains, shopping at an
outlet is ideal.
In Australia, products are generally expensive and
the value of products in outlets is not as devastating
as in the United States, where the price is very low.
The important thing when shopping in Australia is to
look at the products slowly, convert currencies and see
if they are items that are really worth buying in the
This mall is out in the open and, if you search
carefully, you can find products with good prices. There
are stores like Adidas, City Beach, Cotton On, EB Games,
Factorie, Forever New, Levi's Outlet Store, Londsdale,
New Balance, Nine West and others.

Westfield is a brand of famous shopping malls in
England and which is also present in Australia. One of
the best places to shop in Perth is Westfield Carousel,
a large mall where you can find a little bit of
everything. It has several stores of world famous brands
