A destination to delight! Eat, shop, stay.

Wait at the window bench, lounge in the laneway or sit inside this eclectically filled café whilst you sip on a Coffee Supreme latte or simply let time pass by and savour the flavour of a crispy cooked toastie, sweet tasty treat, Prana Chai or perfectly brewed T2.

A funky, fun and fabulous shopping destination where you can pop a cacti in a designer planter, spoil your senses with the aromas of a delicious candle or bejewel yourself with Ruby Olive and Co.InkyDinks bling-bling.

You will find Lydiard general store and AirBNB in the historic northern precinct of Lydiard Street, Soldiers Hill.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
