  • Can’t be compared to the Premium Outlets in many other countries like USA, Korea, Japan and Malaysia. This is a smaller scale outlet shopping mall. Not all stores have discounts that makes you go wow ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Probably the best outlet mall in Melbourne with a wide range of luxury and affordable brands on offer. In addition there is a large separate section for furniture. Next to the river there are also plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants with awesome views and great food. The only problem seems to be the expensive parking so don't forget to get a 50% discount card from retailers when you shop.
  • Brilliant deals and a decent variety of stores. I love coming here to get the best price as the shops are direct factory outlets of the brand. It is pretty crowded most of the time but gets insanely packed during the sales! On Boxing Day, for example, I could barely move - there were so many people!
  • The place is always live and crowdy as discount and offers run throughout the year here. Mainly good for fancy apparels for all, kids/adults. Also has decent food court. Just opposite to Crown Casino , very easy approach. Local commutation facility like trams are available from just outside the DFO.
  • Good for cheap shopping. Because it is outlet there's often not a lot of the most common sizes but if you hunt you'll get a really good deal. Parking is a bit pricey but the stores will validate for you and there's some nice places to eat nearby if you don't want to eat in the food court

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.
