Dfo has some great shops. It wasn't busy at all when I visited on a Monday in early 2019. Strangely the carpark was very busy. Parking is $12 per hour but if you shop it's $6 per hour. I spent over $300 in 90 minutes...More

Many direct factory outlets offers variety of goods at large discounts. All the leading big brands are available. Definitely the prices are cheaper than normal stores.Plenty of eating places inside and nearby. You need to get a tramp from the city.

This is right in the city/CBD! It’s my first Boxing Day shopping experience and I have to say it’s awesome!!! Items are already heavily discounted and because it is Boxing Day, additional 10-30% discounts!

Great after Xmas sales at dfo south wharf. Very comfy shopping experience. If you drive there once you purchase something in the stores they can validate your parking for you.

The DFO is primarily located on one level. Most of the best shops face the food court. There is limited selection of food stalls at the food court... There is a small playground for kids on the first level.
