Aside from its obvious charm, there’s no questioning why Malvern East is such a popular area. Visitors travel great distances to enjoy the huge offering of delightful restaurants and cafes.

Particular favourites include the famous High Tea at The Gables, hearty breakfasts at Servery and Spoon Cafe and mouthwatering American style dishes at Home to Roost. Just up the road you’ll also find Malvern’s first drink-in wine shop which has been causing quite a stir. Malvern boasts over 400 shops, cafés, restaurants and services, all in a beautifully unique setting.

Prefer peaceful walks to the hustle and bustle? Enjoy some of Melbourne’s most beautiful gardens and parks – including D Laver West Reserve and the famous Hedgeley Dene Gardens – as well as a slew of heritage listed buildings such as Stonnington Mansion. If fitness is more your thing, you’ll be thrilled to know you’re only minutes away from the Waverley Oval, Harold Holt Swim Centre, and a handful of fitness centres.
