A Guide to Eating Well in Isolation

A Guide to Eating Well in Isolation

It’s business as UN-usual in Geelong and The Bellarine and a bunch of our fav businesses have responded. 

We may have to be socially isolated, but that doesn't mean we can't eat well. Peruse this menu of local restaurants who’ll hook you up with a great feed (from at least 1.51m away), plus your meal will be extra tasty knowing you're supporting your local hospo community.


Alma at Home - Serving up a range of your favourites, the team at Alma are offering phone orders, card payment and dedicated pickup parking spots!

360Q - These Queenscliff legends are taking the take away concept a step further, offering a la carte meals for collection as well as incredible 14-day isolation packs, serving up two weeks worth of signature dinners delivered to your (local) door. Check out the weekly menus and order now!

Mr Grubb - Ocean Grove locals in lockdown? From Friday 20th, Oakdene's very excellent kitchen will be turning out tasty take away.
