Hobsons Bay City Council
Home / Dining

The sense of discovery that was once achieved by arriving by ship in Hobsons Bay can now be felt by stepping into any one of many dining experiences. 

As the first Port of Melbourne, Hobsons Bay has nurtured its reputation by now being called home to many of the world’s culinary delights.

The mix of cultures in Hobsons Bay is reflected in the eclectic menus that can be found in Altona, Laverton, Newport and Williamstown.

Quality restaurants, cafés and pubs now showcase the talents of local people. Local chefs take real delight in discovering and using fresh products that make our chefs the new Sea Captains of the bay.

Al fresco dining along the historic streetscapes is a true highlight while sampling anything from contemporary modern Australian to exquisite European and Asian cuisine.  Cafés are casual and trendy with great coffee to please the true connoisseurs.    

To check out what you can sample call the Hobsons Bay Visitor Information on 9932 4310 to plan your next dinner date in Hobsons Bay.
