I went to check out their range of Yeti’s and they had an awesome selection with heaps of different colours. I managed to get two that I’ve been after! Really lovely service as well!
I came in not knowing anything about using a Weber. Ben gave great advice and exceptional service to help me choose the right Weber for me. Definitely recommend going to Weber at Bowen Hills
Terrific, easy purchasing experience over the phone with Eddie, not once but twice! I will definitely be ordering from you again! Thank you😃
Wonderful service! I had my new Weber delivered and they even went the extra mile to have it fully assembled. Would certainly recommend the team at Dune.
