Choose a park for the picnic season
The town of Port Phillip offers many great places to lay a rug and feast on some goodies from the local businesses.
Try Catani Gardens where the historic Canary Island palm boulevards line the walking trails, while nearby Fitzroy Street offers plenty of dining options and the Acland Street area is a short walk or tram ride away.
Or try Garden City Reserve, one of Port Melbourne’s largest theme parks. It can accommodate a range of activities including cycling, soccer, dog walking, trugo games, picnics and adventure games in the playground. A vast network of shared paths facilitates passage through the reserve.
To find the perfect place to picnic, consult the Council’s Parks Directory.
Many of your local cafes and restaurants stock your ultimate picnic treats. Need some ideas to get started? Try Canteen CafÃ©’s take-out sandwich boxes in Melbourne’s South Market or a five-course Fitzrovia picnic in St Kilda.
Gasworks CafÃ© offers customers the option of purchasing picnic baskets, which can be tailored to include specific items and disposable biodegradable cutlery, plates, napkins, mugs, ground cover to store everything – the all in an easy to carry box.
