Shopping centres don’t get much bigger than Chadstone. In fact, the East Malvern mega-mall is the largest in Australia, and for four days, it’s treating visitors to special offers, foodie workshops and kids activities.
If you haven’t set foot in Chadstone for a while, then the 530 retailers are reason enough to squeeze your way into the carpark (which, incidentally, they’ll be offering alternatives to by way of free shuttle buses running hourly from the city). A selection of Australian and international designers will host exclusive discounts and special offers.
Food-wise, don’t miss cooking demonstrations from celebrity chef Adam D’Sylva (of Coda and Tonka fame), as well as a champagne masterclass.
There’s every reason to bring the family, too. A pop-up carnival will form the centrepiece of the activities for kids, and live circus shows will delight littlies as well as grown-ups.
To top it all off, there'll be live performances by Justice Crew and Nathaniel. Sweet discounts and skilful hip-hop dance? Sold.
