Getting in and out of this place is a real nightmare - and you have to wonder if it is actually worth it. Oroton welcomes customers in with Customs-style security (and yes, they have barricades outside the stores). Many of the sales at DFO are not genuine - they mark prices up (as do many regular retailers) and then 'drastically' mark down, so really shop around before 'bagging a bargain'. However, stores like Cotton On, the Shoe Warehouse, Strandbags and Dotti are for real - Cotton On recently had everything in the store for $5 - Strandbags discounts upto 70% and Dotti is way cheaper than retail stores.
Just note what the refund/exchange policy is, because some offer full refunds and others only a credit note, while some don't offer either.
Security at this place is a joke - they wear fluro yellow vests but don't actually do anything other than looking cool and ushering cars into the poorly planned carpark.
Food court is pretty limited and hence way overpriced.
Sounds like a girls perfect shopping trip!
