I love a good outlet shopping and this is one of the two good places I know of in Sydney (the other is DFO Homebush).
Birkenhead is good for shopping and has the added benefit of being on the water, you can have a coffee or a spot of lunch with a view. Even the Country Road outlet has a view of a marina, too pretty I tell you.
The address that comes up on my maps is Roseby Street, Drummoyne which is spot on because it takes up the better part of that road.
There are two main parking areas, one on the left hand side of the road (left when facing the water) and this is best suited for your homeware shopping and sports wear shopping. Parking on the left you will cross over Roseby to get into the Mall. The other parking area is on the right hand side and is best suited for the food section (Coles, Aldi, a butcher and stunning grocer amongst others) and your fashion wear.
The stores I frequent here (and by frequent I mean I walk around and try stop myself from buying too much) are:
The structure of the Mall is a little bizarre, the levels are all over the place. At the very top (entering from the Left parking lot) are GAP, Adairs, Bed Bath Table, Hugo Boss, Crocs and Superdry to name a few. This is level 3 according to the floor layout.
The level below that (level 2 for those keeping count) which you can access from either the escalator or the lift has Tommy Bahama, French Connection, Esprite, Lindt, a number of suit shops, Tommy Hilfiger, Bendon, Oroton and others.
The very bottom which you can also access from the lift has Nike, Forever New, Country Road, Lorna Jane, Mimco, Peter Alexander, Crabtree and Evelyn, Nine West, Calvin Klein and more.
Then below that are the food stores which you get to by going down a ramp or escalator or a different lift that is outside Lorna Jane. This is called Ground on the floor layout.
The layout is very very confusing and everytime I go I’m convinced I’ve left something out and missed a deal of a lifetime. In the long run its probably best for my credit card and my husband’s health that I miss a few things.
Should you want to check out the shop directory yourself here it is.
There are parents rooms on level 3 – that’s the top floor 🙂 and two small play areas for younger kids one near muffin break on the top floor and the other outside Sandler on the bottom.
As for the views:
If you need to buy gifts or you want to get something for the home this is you best bet. I can not tell you the amount I’ve saved from buying linen here as opposed to the actual stores. And GAP, don’t even bother with the sales at the GAP store, they don’t compare. It really is worth a trip!
