Visit Wangaratta Part 1

Disclosure: Our visit was courtesy of the Rural City of Wangaratta. Top reasons to visit Wangaratta: It’s far enough from Melbourne to feel that you’re actually going somewhere and actually getting away from the city, but not so far you can’t visit in a weekend. It’s located in North East Victoria, which is a gorgeous [...]

Portsea Hotel: Lamaro’s on the Deck

Disclosure: My guest and I dined courtesy of Portsea Hotel / Lamaro’s on the Deck and Kate & Co. Wouldn’t it be nice to leave the city behind and head down the coast for summer? Particularly on these hot, hot days? That’s exactly what the team from Lamaro’s, the restaurant in South Melbourne, did earlier [...]

Beechworth: Provenance Restaurant & Accommodation

I always say I’m not really a birthday person, but that’s not strictly true. I don’t like to celebrate my own birthday, but I enjoy celebrating other people’s. And by celebrating, I mean: torturing. And by torturing, I mean torturing with love and attention and cake OF COURSE. (And birthday lasagne, but only for the [...]

Hargreaves Hill Brewing Company

There’s something nice about getting out of Melbourne for a drive and lunch – even if it’s only down to the Mornington Peninsula or to the Yarra Valley. When you go with friends it’s even better: you can sing along to cheesy songs (stop right now, thank you very much / the vengabus is coming [...]

Open Pantry, Ballarat

Hey, remember when I went to Ballarat earlier this year? One place I wanted to check out was Open Pantry, which is a cafe on Ballarat’s Bakery Hill. In addition to serving breakfast and lunch, they also stock a range of grocery and deli items such as cheeses, small goods, pasta and jams for purchase. [...]

Barmah Park Vineyard Cafe

Disclosure: We dined courtesy of Barmah Park. You may remember some of my previous posts about trips down to the Mornington Peninsula. These trips are always fun. Part of the fun is getting to spend day with friends. Part of it is getting to poke around op shops looking for food blogging props. Some of [...]

Ciao Bella

Following the success of Friday Road Trip, the Labour Day long weekend saw us (me, Shellie, Thanh, April, Haz and Gaz) pile into two cars for more driving and llama seeking. This trip had a slightly different focus from the previous one – instead of food, our goal was an op shop crawl. There was [...]

Montalto Piazza Cafe

It was one of the hottest days in 2013, I had a Friday off work, and my DD was back from a month long holiday. It called for a Friday Road Trip. We roped in Thanh and Shellie, piled into Shellie’s car and headed down the Peninsula. On the drive down there was Spice Girls [...]
