Eastland Shopping Centre is home to roughly 350 stores, meaning it would take over 11 hours to see them all if you only spend two minutes at each one!
There’s so much to see and do at this fantastic shopping and dining location that it can be hard to know where to go when you don’t have 12 hours to spend wandering through the mall.
Hunter & Barrel is one of the best Eastland restaurants, so we have spent plenty of time exploring the stores here ourselves. Here are our picks for how to spend a day at Eastland Shopping Centre!
Start your visit to Eastland Shopping Centre with a stop in Ishka.
This small store on level one is a fantastic Aladdin’s Cave of treasures. It brings together homewares, gifts, jewellery, furniture, and even handmade clothing, all imported from locations around the world, which offers something a little different from what you might usually find in local stores.
Plus, many of your purchases at Ishka helps those in developing communities around the world, so it’s a win for everyone.
Next, stay on level one and make your way to Sportsco, a major retailer for all things sports and fitness.
If you’ve been meaning to upgrade your worn out old sneakers, need a new sweat towel, or want to pick up a soccer ball to kick around on weekends, this is the place to do it.
Next stop, Dangerfield.
Dangerfield is a Melbourne-born fashion label that brings together street style and vintage influences, meaning you can usually find something a little offbeat and fun in store.
Think leather jackets, comfy streetwear, and funky accessories that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.
What’s a trip to Eastland Shopping Centre without losing yourself in Myer?
This massive department store has it all, so it’s an easy go-to for anything from gifts to clothing to kitchen appliances.
Browsing the homewares section always turns up a few new treats, and the gadgets in the kitchen section can make life that much easier.
Also be sure to keep an eye out for sales, as Myer regularly offers great discounts on big name brands, so it’s the ideal place to pick up a bargain or two on almost any product you could possibly need.
Hunter & Barrel
With all that shopping, you must have worked up an appetite!
Treat yourself to a meal at Hunter & Barrel. You can dine on exquisite steaks, juicy chicken breasts, crunky pork schnitzels, and much more. Our relaxed and welcoming atmosphere is the perfect place to unwind with a barrel-aged cocktail and peruse the trinkets and goodies you purchased throughout the day.
Finish the day with a movie at Hoyts Ringwood, which is also found in the mall.
They have the latest blockbusters, and plenty of options for terrifying thriller and horror flicks if you like the scary stuff. You can even treat yourself to the Hoyts Lux experience for extra-relaxing reclining seats, and the option to bring wine and beers into the theatre with you.
