Celebrate the long weekend with an ever flowing Prosecco fountain, a True Blue bottomless brunch and four specially crafted cocktails paying homage to the land down under.
If you’re looking to make the most of this years infrequent Aus Day long weekend, then you’ve come to the right place.
Here’s what’s on in the Chapel Precinct this Straya Day long weekend.
This year, Galah are taking it up a notch for their Aus Day fundraiser. Relishing in its name and creating four bespoke cocktails to celebrate the land of Daryl Braithwaite, Vegemite and the humble esky. Available from 26 Jan to 3 Feb you can enjoy the Galah – a grapefruit margarita drawing from the peach colours of the Galah’s frill; the Cockatoo – a mezcal sour complete with a hand stencilled cocky on top; a Kookaburra – blueberry juice with a strawberry gum syrup, Never Never gin, Amaro and lemon juice who is jumping up and down with its pants on fire to complete the drink; or the Rainbow Lorikeet – a tutti fruity layered beverage paying homage to the colourful bird. Galah is also donating $1 for each of the four cocktails sold to Bird Life Australia, a non-for-profit bird conservation group working across Australia.

As a Chapel Street resident of a number of years, I’ve noticed a few changes in our community. But I’ve also observed a few things that are iconically Chapel Street that only residents can truly relate to. When you know, you know.
The Prahran Square car park is now open for business! 500 undercover parks and electric car charging stations right in the heart of the Chapel Street Precinct. Plus, it’s only $1 for 2 hours!
We wanted to unearth the precinct’s most memorable and unique burgers for the ultimate Chapel Precinct burger crawl. Warning: salivation guaranteed.
Aimed to raise essential funds for the Sacred Heart Mission’s Woman’s House, which supports women experiencing homelessness, the op shop campaign will be held earlier this year kicking off in August with a Launch Party at the Prahran op shop and finishing in September at its newest shop in Prahran.
Secondary cuts of meat are those working muscles which are more flavoursome and textural, but need a little more time and care to polish off the edges, but by doing so you are richly rewarded.
If you’ve never taken a trip to Greville Street, you’re seriously missing out. This petite Prahran street leads you gently from the hustle of Chapel Street, into a warm village of boutique makers, retailers & artists.
I braved my first Pole Dancing class at Pole Divas Prahran and I was really (dare I say it?) feeling myself. Prepared to feel uncomfortable, thankfully, my awesome older sister was eager (you can see why she’s the oldest) to join me for our first experience with the pole.
