BMW Night Drives: Canberra Icons


Luxury is simply a word until it means something more to you. A BMW Night Drive is the true luxury experience that you receive and feel when you’re behind the wheel of a BMW. On a BMW Night Drive, you’ll get the opportunity to drive six new BMW models alternately, experiencing the new ambient lighting of the BMW interiors at dusk, and the latest technology in headlights at night. The All New BMW X5 launching in November is equipped with new technologies for more safety and maximum driving dynamics on every surface.

Each evening we will visit multiple iconic Canberra locations, curated by DESIGN Canberra. Through DESIGN Canberra we will explore the strong geometry present through our city and the ways it creates human, creative and global connections. Starting and finishing at Rolfe Classic BMW, we will visit Japanese Architect Kengo Kuma’s installation on Aspen Island (near the Carillon) each evening as well as different locations including the Shine Dome, Parliament House, Monaro Mall and the Pakistan Embassy.

Every driver will need to hold and bring a full drivers licence and sign an indemnity form on the evening, via a test drive app (we will photograph the licence as part of this process). Please note, each car will take two passengers. Single bookings will be combined.
