Riverland Bar and Cafe

An iconic Melbourne bar and cafe nestled in the historic Federation Wharf vaults.

The Federation Wharf vaults were built in 1889 and have played a major part in Melbourne’s waterfront history. Riverland opened its doors in 2006 but prior to that the vaults have been home to many businesses including a boat builder, ferry service, coffee importer and model aeroplane manufacturer.

Designed by leading Melbourne architects, Six Degrees, Riverland provides a relaxed space with a warm atmosphere where people can enjoy the company of friends and take in a view that includes rowers, picturesque gardens and the Arts Centre precinct.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Riverland’s menus cater for a variety of tastes. There’s nothing like a BBQ on the Yarra and the gourmet sausages with caramelised onions, tangy sauerkraut and sweet tomato sauce from the outdoor BBQ are a big hit. Come down and enjoy the relaxed hospitality.

The generous, honest flavours are designed to delight – there’s no Tiramisu, Nutella or wacky flavours, over the top inclusions, garish decorations and definitely no syringes. Just classic flavours made simply and well. Chocolate, French Vanilla, Salted Caramel, Macadamia Praline, Raspberry Sorbet, Coconut Sorbet and fresh seasonal flavours using local and fresh produce where possible.
