DFO Perth is Perth’s newest premium outlet shopping destination with a mix of fashion, lifestyle and homeware retailers, including some iconic brands such as Guess, Polo Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger. The whole centre has an industrial lux feel with an exposed ceiling, warehouse lighting and comfortable seating options with USB charging ports.
It is hard not to spoil the kids with a great selection of children’s clothing stores such as Osh Kosh B’Gosh/Carters, Bonds, Cotton On Kids and Ollie’s Place. For a full list of stores, click here.
You can give the kids a break from shopping and take them for a play at the fully enclosed playground located just outside the food court. The playground features an aviation theme (fitting given the location) and is designed for children under the age of 13. I loved the playground is not only enclosed, it is also sheltered and set on softfall (win-win)!
The climbing structure resembles the body of an aeroplane and features rock-climbing, mountaineering ropes, rope ladders – the structure is suited to children aged 3+ although my adventurous 18 month old was able to climb to the stop with perseverance and a little help from me. At the highest point, there are binoculars and a telescope, my 2 year old loved trying to spot the planes at the airport, there is also a speaking tube (the other end is located on the ground) and slide.
On ground level there is a music area, the other end of the speaking tube, tunnel, and chalkboard. There is also a small toddlers area with a ride-on plane and sensory activities.
There are tables and chairs outside the fenced area that overlook the playground, parents can enough a cup of coffee or bite to eat while the kids play – the only downside to this space is the lack of shade. Parents need to sure their children are supervised at all times.
There is a range of food and beverage options, the food court has plenty of seating including a designated licensed dining area and the fancy design allows plenty of natural light which is really lovely.
The parent room facilities are the best I have seen in Perth and theme is absolutely adorable! Like many parent rooms there is a little play area for the kids, but what I particularly loved about the parent room is that mums can feed their baby behind a closed curtain while watching their toddler play on the CCTV.
There are 1,500 parking bays making parking was a breeze, although you do have to pay for parking – unless you plan to stay all day parking is affordable, click here for parking fees.
