We have been coming here regularly for 20 years but alas not for the last 3-4, well time does weary the strip, many vacant shops, looks quite tired with mainly the tried and tested main stream brands holding out....but for how long. My spies tell me Swan street is benefiting but that will have to wait for another time

We were looking forward to a busy shopping strip, full of vareity. So many empty shops - where did they all go? The shopping strip was very quiet but the upside was the friendly staff and great service. My out-of-town group were blown away with Melbourne's friendly staff and are planning to return next year.

Oh where have you gone Bridge Road, your bustle has died, and leaseholds are to buy. You stand empty and forlorn whilst Chapel Street thrives. Paint is peeling, Tired old ceilings. My trip wasted ....Goodbye

A walk down Bridge Rd takes one on a journey into 'clothes land' - any girl will be well pleased strolling along and window shopping or purchasing from the huge range of shops including many well known brands. Boys also have plenty to choose from. When one tires of the crowded, soulless DFO, take time to visit these shopping outlets.

I was disappointed to find quite a few empty shops in Bridge Road. I would guess that DFO and Harbourtown have taken trade away which is sad. Still a nice couple of hours browsing but I didn't find any real bargains. Had a great coffee and fruit toast at Mornin' Gorgeous.

Left a luncheon at Restaurant and wandered along Bridge road were a bit taken back by the amount of vacant premises we saw if this is being caused by restrictive parking being enforced, some measure should be introduced to try and reinject some new life into this once iconic shopping strip

Girls I know say that they usually manage to find shoes at good prices. There are a couple of good clearance stores but also some empty shops at present which is a bit off putting. Good tram access from the city on route 48 (Collins Street) or 75 (Flinders Street).
