Want to know how to get your mitts on Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Bally and Tom Ford at an amazing discount? Head to Birkenhead Point's newly opened luxury precinct in Sydney, where you can shop the latest world-class additions to the outlet shopping centre: Bally and luxury department store Harrolds. We're talking past-season designer gear that you can actually try on (raise your hand if you've made terrible purchasing decisions at a Net-a-Porter sale...) 

Yep, thanks to a fresh new multi-million dollar makeover, the days of daggy outlet shopping centres are a fainy memory. Birkenhead Point not only boasts the best harbour views an outlet store has likely ever seen, but its sprawling, open air design houses a sizeable food court, car park (where the first three hours are free - score) and even a marina, in case you want to cruise your way there...

And if that isn't enough to tire you out, there's also offerings from Converse, Country Road, Ginger & Smart, Hype DC, Levi's, Nike, Oroton, Puma, Witchery, Sunglass Hut and Peter's of Kensington to whet your shopping appetite.

So next time you're in deperate need of some retail therapy, you know where to head...
