This Mall was an experience. My family had a ball, i was limping by the end of the day...limping.... from the shopping...There is a free bus that departs from the CBD and the stop is outside Federation square. The bus operates from Monday to Sunday From 10Am and picks people up from Chadstone at 3pm but when you get on the bus the bus driver should give you a bus time table so you know when he picks you up. On Thurs, Fri & Sat there is an 11AM bus and a 4:30pm bus from Chadstone. But the time-table also states that it only departs from Chadstone at 3pm on Mon & Tues (October to April Only). So check and see if any other changes have been done. This was from a timetable i had on January 2013.
The shops are many, from Tiffany.co, Louis vuitton, David Jones, furniture stores, you can also take a break and catch a movie or eat from the number of eateries.
Due to the large number of people though keep your belongings close to you and ladies please keep your handbags closed. And guyz watch out for your wallets, i saw this teenager trying to pick-pocket this young man on his phone and when he caught me staring at him as i stood up to go towards him he quickly disappeared into the crowds.
So have fun shopping but be aware of your surroundings.
