  • This area is best visited in the evening. The bars and restaurants come alive esp at weekend and they have big flame throwers that go off every hour when it is dark.  more »
  • We walked over from flinders street , very pleasant walk if you don't like crowd like my husband and I best walk before 10 .  more »
  • Day day course is the characteristic spots of Melbourne's Yarra River, but here at night and is very clean. We recommend that you see from the top of the bridge.

  • I don't want to lump all people in the same category. The sales guys are great although your service manager let's you down. I can honestly say I have never experienced such poor customer service in my life. I have had a major issue with my new bike and he flat out wouldn't believe me. Instead all he wanted to do was argue with me and make the customer wrong. I have been in on other occasions and watched him do the same with others so it's not isolated.
  • Purchased the bike from Southbank. Serviced by them on every occasion. Have had no problems with there work. Always has been ready at the time I have requested. Only one glitch didn't get my online booking once due to a software problem with the emails. Fitted me in when I wanted.
  • Not that impressed. despite the nice showroom, great range of bikes to peruse and free cappuccinos, they make some horrendous errors. I experienced 3 major errors/problems in 2 years. How would you react - when having purchased a new bike, the deals done you signed the contract, you arrive excited to pick it up to be asked for more money. Because they found a fault with your trade in that they did nt see before!. Would you wait 36 hours for your bike to be serviced even when pre booked?. Would you wait 3 months for a 1 day repair to be done only to have the bike returned with half the work done?. I ve taken my crazy motorcycle addiction - and the tens of thousands of dollars i spend on it elsewhere. I don t think they've even noticed. If i could give a zero i would.
  • I have nothing but high praise for all stuff at BMW Melbourne.They are busy and sometimes hard to get on the phone but quick to answer Emails even well after their working hours. Regards to all.
  • Service done today and offcourse some new accessories bought... ShaunO, ShaunB and Tristan all soo helpful... a loan bike was ready for me... Only problem is I have to buy more bling every time i walk in to the door... In saying that great advise is always available... Thanks guys
