  • There are many shops here the in the districts docklands . However not all items are on discount . So do check both out and find your best bargains. DFO is just opposite the crown Casio.  more »

  • Great shopping experience. Good parking access. Close to Hilton Hotel which is always fantastic to stay at. 15 min walk to Docklands library and Etihad close by too. Lots of things to do and see in this area/part of city. I love it as its close to the water. Lots of green space too near the library. Awesome sunsets.
  • A great shopping experience. Amazing variety to choose from. Prices very affordable. The shop assistants very personable. A trip to DFO a definite must. The food outlets and restaurants enhance the whole experience especially with the river alongside. A beautiful outing which is a given when I visit Melbourne.
  • I think its a wonderful place to get really good branded stuff at a reasonable price. Specially the sports stores tend to offer really good deals! only thing I don't really like is the fact that they close by 6pm, which is a bit too early for most of us I believe !
  • Usually packed. Parking is a mission. Not well serviced by public transport. You need to walk from casino which is fine if you're fit but not if you're elderly or disabled. Selection of stores is good and there are bargains to be had tho. Big ups to the new balance store. Good shoes and great prices.
  • Excellent selection of shops available. The food court has multiple tasty places to try and service is pretty fast. There is adequate seating and the tables and chairs are kept clean. Well worth a visit to check it out. Also nicely positioned against the river.
