Queensland may be famous for its sunshine, but for visitors in search of bargain buys, DFO Cairns is the place to go. Part of a national retail chain, DFO Cairns is packed full of both Australian and international brands. Think Polo Ralph Lauren, Oroton, Quiksilver, Williams Outlet, Trade Secret and more, all offering shoppers savings of up to 70% off in sales.
As well as the current end of season lines, DFO Cairns features discontinued collections, past season stock, and exclusive purchases. When visitors are all shopped out, the centre also features a fully appointed food court, as well as a wide range of services including a beauty salon, post office, pharmacy, newsagent, and supermarket.
Most north and southbound bus routes stop at DFO Cairns. From the city centre it’s just a 10-minute drive and is an easy day trip from nearby Port Douglas, with the 70-kilometre drive taking just over an hour.
Under the original DFO business model, the shopping centres were usually positioned on cheap land close to the airport. The Cairns centre breaks the norm with a central location that’s just minutes from the city centre. As well as Cairns, Queensland is also home to two additional DFO centres in Brisbane and Jindalee.
