  • We had a fabulous time. We went on a Thursday afternoon out of school holidays so it wasn't too busy. Kids and adults loved it. Great staff. Very helpful and friendly. Gift shop was handy to get a couple of birthday gifts for children.
  • Good brands at great prices. Mostly experience was positive in every shop. Michael Corrs store staff were a bit snobby. Great selection of shops.
  • Best DFO I have been to. The balance of great deals, cheaper stores and "premium shops" is excellent. You can get a good deal while also checking out the stores you can't afford. Parking is easy but expensive $5 an hour IF you get a validation ticket.
  • Location is not that good if you are coming via public transport. It has many stores and a food court as well. Prices are always very reasonable and you get awesome bargains during special sales.
  • Good place to spend the day shopping and dining. Parking is great just remember to validate your parking ticket from any of the stores before leaving.

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
