A special gourmet waterfront pop-up for summer

Head to Lakes Entrance in Victoria for a new gourmet pop-up experience over summer.

The redevelopment of the Lakes Entrance Slipway site, unused for a number of years, is the location where a dynamic group of prominent local folk will be turning the site into what they describe as "a vibrant community retail and entertainment space".

This space will be taken over by a group comprising local craft brewers, chefs, producers and artists and turned into an outdoor events arena.

The group has been brought together by Gabrielle Moore of Sailors Grave Brewing; Samantha Mahlook of Miriam’s Restaurant; Sallie Jones of Gippsland Jersey; and Andrea Lane, of FLOAT Lake Tyers Beach.

The site will offer freshly-caught Lakes Entrance seafood, award winning local beer, renowned ice cream and dairy goods, fresh breads, wines and art inspired by the natural beauty of East Gippsland.

John Keeble of Event Studios Australia (who build and supply mobile event infrastructure at some of Australia’s premier events) has pledged to level the ramp site and provide purpose-built facilities to house the businesses.

The Slipway Collective will be largely open-air. Vendors will be housed within redesigned shipping containers and the existing concrete ramp will be transformed to hold dining tables.

The site is in a prime position in the popular tourist town of Lakes Entrance but has been unused for a number of years.

Slipway Collective will be open noon-9pm seven days a week from Christmas to the end of January.

  1. The juxtaposition of old world ambience and architecture in a small urban city is part of what makes Victoria one of the most uniquely special places in Canada.
