Father’s Day Buffet Breakfast and Two-Course Lunch – Melbourne Zoo, Parkville, Melbourne
Sunday, 1 September 2019
The Father’s Day Buffet Breakfast or two-course lunch will be hosted at Melbourne Zoo on Father’s Day. On arrival, your Dad can enjoy a hot buffet breakfast at the Lakeside café or the Rainforest Room from 9am. Or if you prefer, treat your dad to a beer or glass of wine before tucking into a fabulous two course lunch from 12:30pm.
There will be a photo booth on site where your family can jump in to grab some special memories of the day.
After lunch, everyone is free to stroll through the zoo at their leisure, discovering the animals and enjoying the beautiful grounds of the Melbourne Zoo. There is also a Dad Joke trail at the Melbourne Zoo from Monday, 26 August 2019 to Sunday, 1 September 2019. Download the Dad Joke Trail at www.zoo.org.au then head off into the zoo grounds to find all the answers.
To get to the Melbourne Zoo, grab the 58 tram which will stop directly outside the Melbourne Zoo, or an Upfield line train and jump off at Royal Park Station – just across the road from Melbourne Zoo’s rail gate entrance.
Slow-cooked Sunday @ Etta, 60 Lygon Street, Brunswick East, Melbourne
Sunday, 1 September 2019
Keep an eye on the website of Etta to be a part of their ‘Slow-cooked Sundays’ series. For Father’s Day 2018, the head chef barbecued in the back courtyard to serve up some beautiful slow cooked meats with plenty of veggie friendly options also available.
The menu last year included beef short ribs, suckling pork skewers with delicious desserts and side dishes to match. Undoubtably, 2019 will be just as amazing! Catch the number 1 or number 6 tram to a stop right outside Etta Restaurant, East Brunswick.
