I can remember getting excited about a shopping trip to Bridge Road ten years ago. Now... not so much. What a shame, the street has pretty much died and the shops that remain aren't sale shops at all, they're just regular stores like Sportsgirl. Unbelievably sad. What a waste. They had such a good thing going on and now it's... More

Good place to shop designer and boutiques looking for bargains. Though disappointingly we found about 20% of the shops empty.

Walking along Bridge Road in Richmond is interesting and fun. There are lots of boutiques, some with quirky names, and most with really nice things. There is also some well designed furniture and some food specialty shops.

Lots of great shops, some heavily discounted - others not. But on the day it was a great event for ladies...we were seven and had a great time.

Bridge Road is no longer the bargain shopping hub it used to be. About 80% of the shop fronts are empty. For bargain shopping I'd recommend Habour Town, Spencer St Outlets or DFO!

We walked up to Bridge Road to do some shopping on Sunday while visiting Melbourne for The Eagles concert. My memories of Bridge Road were of having trouble deciding where to buy from. Now the difficulty is find a shop that's open and not empty/for lease. I would estimate only 1/3 (if that) of the shops were open - and... More

This used to be a great shopping location. Now there would 30% occupancy. A few shops still left, Zu is a good shop to go to. Allanah hills is still there and worth a drop in. A lot of $10.00 shops that are pretty junky. Review is there but same prices as spencer outlet. Actually very sad to see the... More

Bridge road is long past its hey day. There are only a handful of stores which are not worth the trip. Most of the street is vacant. Don't bother!
