Okay, it’s safe to say it – winter is here. At least for the state of Victoria that is! As the air becomes fresh, and the ground becomes frosty, we often rug up, hibernate inside and rarely leave the house. After a while, it gets to be a little boring, and you just need to get out and move around again! So no matter where you are, jump in the car and head to some of these locations for a day-out-in-foodie-heaven that will be worth braving the cold for.
Well there’s a reason Melbourne is called the world’s most livable city! The reason why so many people migrate to Victoria every year is because it has an abundance of food, from various cuisines, all at your fingertips, and this extends to the outer boroughs as well.
A great place to visit for a divine foodie experience is Bendigo, in Central Victoria. With so many choices you will have a fantastic experience wherever you go (there’s approximately 200 places to eat in town!). From classic-yet-divine pub food, to Asian-inspired share-style cuisine there are some fantastic choices! Our favorites have to be Masons, The Woodhouse, Four Ponies, and Rocks on Rosalind.
Another fantastic foodie location is Red Hill, on the Mornington Peninsula. With wineries galore, this is a great place to stay, wine and dine to your hearts delight. Hosting home to delightful wineries such as Montalto, T’Gallant, and Hickingbotham you can really eat your way around the vineyards and take in the pristine scenery that is the Peninsula.
Last but certainly not least is Daylesford, Central Victoria. Known for its delightful, funky establishments, it’s perfect for the ultimate hipster. Test out Kazuki’s or Lake House and you’ll be in for a real treat!
