If shopping ‘til you drop is your idea of the perfect day out, you won’t find a much better spot to do just that than at Chadstone Shopping Centre in Malvern East. It’s the biggest shopping centre in the Southern Hemisphere, and at just half an hour’s distance from the Melbourne CBD, it’s a major drawcard for local shopaholics and visitors alike.
Keen to see what the buzz is all about? Here’s our guide to a fun-filled day at Chadstone.
START YOUR DAY WITH A CAFFEINE BOOST
You’ll need plenty of energy to shop your way through Chadstone Shopping Centre’s 550+ stores, so give yourself a kick-start with a coffee at Axil Coffee Roasters. Not only is their coffee roasted to perfection, but they also negotiate prices directly with coffee farmers, which guarantees they pay a price above the cost of production, ensuring a viable business model for farmers.
BROWSE THE BEST OF AUSSIE & INTERNATIONAL BRANDS
From Aje and Alice McCall to Gorman, Zimmerman and Sass & Bide, check out the latest collections from some of Australia’s top boutique designers before experiencing a taste of luxury at high-end stores like Chanel, Jimmy Choo, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co.
TREAT YOURSELF TO A MANI AND PEDI
No shopping trip would be complete without a spot of pampering, so stop in and see the team at Odyssey Nails for a fresh manicure and pedicure complete with a relaxing foot massage and spa.
UNWIND WITH A SPA TREATMENT
Slide into Endota Spa on the lower level at Chadstone and take a moment to unwind in their blissful relaxation lounge. Endota’s expert therapists specialise in massage, organic, advanced and Dermalogica™ facials, body treatments, waxing and spray tans.
GET YOUR GLAM ON
Now that you’re refreshed and rejuvenated from your spa treatment, complete the look with a one-on-one professional makeup application at Mecca Maxima. Experience the signature Mecca look with glowing, sheer skin, or dial up the glam factor with contoured cheeks, smoky eyes and bold lips.
ENJOY THE PERFECT DINING EXPERIENCE AT PUZA BAR
You’ve done some serious retail therapy and you’re looking and feeling like a million bucks. What better way to end the day than with a great glass of wine or a refreshing cocktail at Puza Bar? Visit us at our new Chadstone Bar for the best cocktails in Melbourne.
