Restaurants

Whether you're after a relaxed cafe lunch or a luxurious dinner, you'll find what you're looking for in the Goldfields. With dining experiences that combine fresh regional produce, progressive cuisine and some of the finest wine in the state, you'll be returning again and again.

The good life
The Goldfields region is fast becoming synonymous with quality contemporary dining. The Phoenix Brewery in Ballarat – housed in a converted newspaper building – offers great contemporary fare, while the Lydiard Wine Bar sources the region's famous cool climate wines and delectable local produce.

Bendigo boasts the French traditions and succulent offerings of Bouchon, and the historic settings and fine dining of Whirrakee. Not to be outdone, Castlemaine has become a major player in the dining arena with a host of great options including Empyre, Good Table and the European inspired Public Inn.

Village people
Soak up the local village atmosphere at Togs Place in Castlemaine or Dig Cafe in Newstead, and feast on cake and coffee or something more substantial. Origini and Apple Annies, also in Castlemaine, offer fresh pastries of the highest order and a cosy, relaxed setting.

At the wineries
For a different type of outdoor dining experience enjoy a meal overlooking the vines at a local winery restaurant such as Shelmerdine, Balgownie Estate and Flynns in the Heathcote region, or Bress Wine Cider and Produce in Harcourt .
