Winter has well and truly arrived, but that doesn't mean heading into hibernation. Here's a handful of recently revamped options for what to do when it's a little chilly.
Fireside Jazz at Jack Rabbit Vineyard is back. Featuring some of the finest musical talent around, there's gypsy swing, vintage vocals and a tribute to modern love. Come and enjoy a 3-course dinner, and warm your soul with some tunes (and some dancing). Spaces are limited, so book now.
The recently renovated Refectory in Werribee Mansion has updated their menu for winter, taking advantage of a range of seasonal ingredients to offer an incredible event or catering experience.
Chef Michael White and his team have settled into the kitchen at Vue Grand in Queenscliff, and they're already serving up some magic. Enjoy a decadent 8-course 'Grand Dining' menu with matched wines or keep things more casual with an all new sharing-style menu in the Vue Street Bar.
Barwon Heads Golf Course are welcoming winter with open arms. Enjoy a crisp 18 holes on the coast, and if things get chilly, head into the Clubhouse for a touch of old Scotland, with roaring fires, a hearty menu and even a wee dram of single malt. It's almost like hitting the links at St. Andrews, without the exorbitant airfares. Plus this winter there's an epic escape package which includes complimentary golf for up to two guests when you stay overnight in the iconic clubhouse. Perfect for those early birdies.
