Animal crackers in my soup

Animal crackers in my soup

It’s no secret I love my food.... and drink. I probably eat out more than your average Joe.  Let's call it industry research. Growing up in Geelong and now living on the Bellarine, I’ll gladly take visitors out and about to show off what we have and where I love to do my food research!

I was creating a list of a few places I recently visited, or plan to show some friends, and I noticed a theme occurring. I often wonder how a business comes up with names and I think I might have cracked the code for some.


If looking for a place to sip on wine, try it alongside some magic views at Jack Rabbit Vineyard or take a spin to Eagles Rise Wines in the Moorabool Valley.

Real in a seafood catch at King George fish and grill on the Geelong Waterfront, or The Little Mussel Cafe on the Bellarine hits the spot if you’re looking for some local bounty.


Eaten enough vegies and looking for a good hit of protein, you can’t go past the funky Hot Chicken Project or challenge yourself to a mega cut prime rib steak at Hog’s Breath.

Are you noticing the pattern yet?

I love a good breaky stop at Freckleduck cafe in central Geelong, and my craft beer desires are easily fulfilled at White Rabbit Brewery.

So over to you. Go discover and have a little fun with your friends and family to see what other ANIMAL themed places you can find in our region. It's guaranteed to be a hoot!
