Take a summer stroll down in Docklands to watch the water sparkle. Shop the stalls at the riverside market, book a picnic boat or roll up to Archie Brothers arcade for dodgems. Finish your Christmas shop at the District Docklands and head to Hoyts for a film. There’s plenty for foodies to find too, from DIY okonomiyaki pancakes to artisan gelato. Get your hands on some of the city’s best panini, unwind at Docklands own craft brewery or impress your party with a waterfront table.

Saluministi

Authentic Italian panini and plates are specially at Saluminsti’s waterfront deli digs. Just try and choose from fillings like roasted pork and artichoke, mortadella and green olive and fried calamari. No bread? No worries – they even do gluten-free panino. Grab a table for an after-work spritz and share polenta chips and cheese platters. Grab a take-home eggplant lasagne to share the love.

Urban Alley Brewery

With only windows separating the 25 hectolitre brewhouse and pub, the craft beers at Urban Alley Brewery are a guaranteed fresh pour. The unique eco-model means your sips are super sustainable too. So settle in for a signature bev in the loft style surrounds and order burgers, pizzas and steaks to hit the spot.

Cargo

Come for the view, stay for the food. Cargo is the ultimate crowd pleaser – whether you're after an intimate table for two or a family-friendly spot. Watch the boats on the water, and snap a pic with the skyline sparkling in the background. Sip a refreshing Pimms cup and catch up over crispy cauliflower and pork belly bites. Order chicken tacos and seafood paella for the table and share pizzas fresh from the stone oven.
