The west is really having a moment, and the vibe is only going to continue with the opening of Grazeland, a 10,000sqm food haven by the Yarra River’s entrance to the bay.
True to the name, the airy space is all about grazing, and grazing you shall do with offerings ranging from far and wide: expect the likes of award-winning pizza from 48h, Bengali-style curries from The Calcutta Club, and freshly shucked oysters and lobster rolls from Claw & Tail. Meanwhile, on dessert duties is Stix with their frozen cheesecake and Cielo Gelateria scooping up classic gelato.
The team behind Grazeland wanted to pay homage to the street parties of yesteryear, where everyone could get involved and feel comfortable in their surroundings while enjoying some top-notch food and drink.
“We’re very excited for people to be able to head to Grazeland in March. It will be a great weekend destination for families and friends to come together to relax and be entertained. We welcome Melburnians from across the city to explore more of what Melbourne’s inner-west has to offer,” says Cr Jonathon Marsden, Mayor of Hobsons Bay.
Grazeland is officially open for business. You can get there via a 17 minute train from Flinders Street, a short drive across the Westgate, or, get all boujee and take a boat.
Make a night of it and check out the new outdoor cinema by the Williamstown docks.
