The Oasis Shopping Centre is located on the Broadbeach Mall in Broadbeach, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

It was purchased by Brookfield Asset Management in 2012 from Thakral Holdings. In March 2015 it was purchased by Abacus Property Group and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts.[1][2]

Monorail[edit]

The Oasis Monorail connected the beach, shopping, Sofitel Gold Coast resort and Jupiters Hotel & Casino. It had two stations on level 2 of The Oasis and a station at Conrad Jupiters Casino. Originally known as the Gol'Coasta, the monorail opened to passengers in 1989 along with the shopping centre.[3] In 2001 the operator acquired the majority of the track and the trains originally used at the Merry Hill Shopping Centre in England.[4] In late 2013 the monorail closed for maintenance reopening to passengers on 18 December 2014.[3][5] It closed on 29 January 2017.[6][7]
