Now ready to play host to Melburnians, Grazeland is set to reinvigorate the city’s food scene with a wide range of cuisines and fan favourites on offer from 50 food and beverage vendors in the new permanent playground for foodies from Friday, 26 March.
Initially set to open in early 2020, Grazeland, like many other new ventures, was forced to push pause last year. The unique outdoor dining experience is now more fitting than ever – bringing Melburnians a COVID-safe casual dining precinct that spans across 10,000sqm.
“Almost two years ago, we hand-picked some of our favourite local establishments to join us at Melbourne’s first permanent festival of food and we are thrilled to finally be able to announce Grazeland’s official opening date,” says John Forman, Grazeland Director. “It is more important than ever to be able to offer Melburnians a place to safely gather together and reconnect over food, discover new favourites, and create memories after experiencing such an isolating year.”
Ready to service every indulgence, Grazeland will pay homage to Melbourne’s celebrated hospitality industry and will offer the rare opportunity to please everyone in a group. Grazeland’s large list of sweet and savoury food vendors will be complemented by three fully licensed bars, artisan stalls selling locally designed products, and a rotating schedule of captivating entertainers and live performances on two stages.
Tailored to those looking to feed their curiosity, diners can expect to choose from some of Melbourne’s favourite dishes. Menu items include award-winning pizza from 48h, cannoli from Cannoleria by That’s Amore Cheese, Bengali-style curries from The Calcutta Club, freshly shucked oysters and lobster rolls from Claw & Tail, frozen cheesecake from Stix, family-favourites from Hooked Fish & Chipper, African BBQ from Tasty Suya, and authentic gelato from Cielo Gelateria among many others.
Reminiscent of a street party from earlier days, Grazeland’s design was carefully curated by Push Projects. The location features individually designed stalls that bring each offering to life and was created with Melbourne’s weather in mind, with ample undercover and outdoor seating available – making it a destination for everyone and every season.
Visitors can find the permanent festival of food in Melbourne’s inner-west, across the West Gate Bridge next door to Scienceworks, in Spotswood – just 17 minutes from Flinders St Station and easily accessible via car, boat and public transport.
Grazeland will bring together foodies, families, work colleagues, and couples alike to connect over a food-fuelled adventure and discover some of the best that Melbourne has to offer.
The festival of food will kick off on Friday, 26 March at 5:00pm.
Address: 20 Booker St, Spotswood VIC, 3015
