Bucket-list regional restaurants reopen after lockdown
These bucket-list regional Victorian restaurants are ready to welcome guests.
Craving a road trip with a spectacular meal at the end of a country drive? After months of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, food lovers are finally allowed to dream big again with regional Victoria’s bucket-list restaurants given the green light to open their doors.
Iconic destinations like Daylesford’s Lake House, Beechworth’s Provenance and Dunkeld’s Royal Mail are coming out of hibernation, tweaking their venues to safely welcome guests back to dining rooms and luxury hotel suites.
Restaurants can welcome up to 20 guests for each enclosed space, provided there are four square metres for each person. There is also a six-person limit on each table, and every visitor must provide their name and contact details for contact-tracing.
If all goes well, the government hopes to let restaurants serve 50 patrons from June 22, and 100 people from mid-July. But first things first. Here are some of Victoria’s tastiest reasons for a road trip this winter.
