Foodies to take to the water for festival

31 Jan 2012

Docklands will be front and centre on the opening weekend of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival on March 3 and 4.

This year’s festival is focussed on Melbourne’s waterfront and Docklands is the perfect place to start a gastronomic journey.

Food lovers can take a free river shuttle from Waterfront City Marina or Yarra’s Edge to other festival locations up-stream on both Saturday, March 3 and Sunday, March 4.

Docklands organiser “Good News” Bill Reid said events would be held within Docklands at Harbour Town Shopping Centre, NewQuay and Yarra’s Edge.

He said the local contribution was relatively modest, but it would successfully put Docklands on the festival map for coming years.

“It makes sense for people coming from outside Docklands to park at Harbour Town for $5 for the day and then take the free river shuttle,” Mr Reid said.

“There will be activities around Yarra’s Edge and NewQuay where local restaurants will offer tasting plates from $5 to showcase their particular cuisines.”

“In Harbour Town there will be cooking with kids, so a really great weekend to be in Docklands.”

Mr Reid said the free river shuttle was the key to the success of the weekend, with various locations along the river contributing to the cost.

He said another benefit of the exercise would be to demonstrate how a permanent river shuttle could boost Docklands’ local economy and benefit local businesses.
