Love Cairns DFO and can't wait to get back next week. Love that it's not crowded and huge, you can navigate your way around, easily get a carpark, and I ALWAYS get a bargain (or two). Love the Williams shoe store.

Really this is like a small suburban mall. No real deals. Anything half decent is full price. Very ordinary choice of outlet shops. A trip to the bigger mall further down Mulgrave would be better.More

We had been to DFO Brisbane airport and it was fab. This is a much smaller DFO and seemed to be in a refurb phase.

Considering the limited range of retailers available here, the outlet is not difficult to navigate. Unfortunately, you need to get there early as the retailers generally close at 5 pm.
