More empty spaces than shops. It's the first time that we walked into a mall that we felt no interest to enter any shop inside, and just wanted to leave straight away.

I've been to the Dfo several times, it can be on occasions very quiet with several shops closed, but most of the time it does have a good vibe with lots of out let's stores. Not to far from the city, an easy bus ride, check it out.

Dfo is big and cool - a couple of good shops have closed & a couple have opened - if you want to shop - then this is the place you'll find a bargain.

Spent an afternoon shopping at the DFO and it was great, a lot of bargains and friendly retailers. Found the perfect shirt for a night out at half the price of a normal store. Two thumbs up.

Parked undercover for free, had a coffee from Cafe Eatz, bought from Puma, Quiksilver, Sideway Surf Outlet and Bed Bath N Table. Not a huge centre but what's there is pretty damn good; and was told they're developing so good news for Cairns.
