Visit the Preston Market
Located in the heart of Preston is the Preston Market, which has been successfully running since its opening in 1970. Still today, the Preston Market is a hub of everything from fresh produce and bread to clothing, beauty products and home decor. The market is open from Wednesdays to Sundays and still thrives, bringing in locals and those from surrounding areas. While here, you can do more than pick up groceries and knick-knacks. There are various food and drink vendors with delicious eats featuring many different cuisines. Pick and choose from fluffy crepes, sweet cannolis, hot jam doughnuts, flavourful Vietnamese, tasty borek, and so much more. You won't be disappointed.
Check Out a Local Brewery
Looking for a crisp, cold brew? Then head to a local brewery to try out some of their expertly crafted brews. One notable brewery in Preston is Moon Dog World. A popular brewery nestled away amongst factories, Moon Dog, is set within a huge venue with an extensive lagoon snaking through the middle. They have a massive range of specialty craft beers to try with exciting flavours and fun names. If you want to sip something different, they have Coolers, which are cocktail spirits, Seltzers, which are refreshing soda waters with fruity flavours and a range of Razzlers. There are so many different drinks to try while you sit in this funky venue against the backdrop of lagoon and beach chairs. If you're hungry, they have a tasty food menu with delicious picks that pair nicely with their brews.
Go Out for a Meal
If your tummy is rumbling, then you're in for a treat. Preston is home to some of the tastiest eats around. There are so many quality restaurants and cafes offering mouth-watering food that will leave you dreaming and wanting to come back. If you love Korean food, then head to Lui Boss for some scrumptious Korean, don't forget to order their crispy fried chicken and a delicious Kimchi pancake. Another notable favourite in Preston is Dexter for their iconic meat doughnuts, but don't look past the owner's other venue across the street. Takeaway Pizza offers some of the most sensational pizza that goes above and beyond your average toppings. Alongside their flavourful pizzas, they serve cocktails and other yummy bites.
The Coburg Drive-In is an excellent spot for a date night or to catch a movie with friends. Bring in all your favourite snacks and drinks or buy some from the Village Diner and get cosy in your car while you get ready to watch an exciting new movie. Choose from what's on at the cinemas, get your hot buttery popcorn, dial in, and lay back as the movie begins. The drive-ins are always a fun, different way to experience the movies, and when the movie is over, there's no need to walk to your car.
Explore Darebin Creek & Parklands
Get out in nature at Darebin Parklands. Bring your bike to ride or stroll along one of the many pathways and trails. Explore the parklands, and you may see some wildlife, as well as a range of native flora along the way. There are more than 50 species of Indigenous plants growing within the northern area of the parklands. Additionally, there are other plants that are considered endangered, such as the Matted Flax-Lily that grows there too. Keep an eye out and see if you can spot some. Be sure to stop by the creek, relax, listen to the water flow, and breathe in the fresh air.
Pentridge Prison Tour
The Pentridge Prison housed some of the most notorious prisoners in Australian history. This prison is now heritage listed and offers tours to explore inside the bluestone walls and share the history of those that inhabited its walls. Choose between a daytime visit or, if you're feeling brave, take a nighttime tour of the prison, learn the secrets of prisoners and hear unsettling stories from guards and inmates that have been collected throughout the years. If you need a drink afterwards to settle the nerves, head to Olivine Wine Bar set inside the same bluestone walls of Pentridge. This wine bar takes a luxurious approach with a menu to match, including decadent plates using the finest seasonal ingredients.
