We’re stoked to announce that, this summer, Three Blue Ducks will be riding our biggest wave yet – opening a fifth restaurant at the new URBNSURF Melbourne surf park!
Since launching in the Sydney beachside suburb of Bronte nine years ago, we’ve taken our passion for sustainable and ethically farmed produce to venues in Byron Bay, Rosebery and Brisbane. Now, we’re entering the Melbourne food scene for the first time, with a restaurant that will encompass our ethos of simple, real food, prepared with love – on a bigger scale.
Located just minutes from Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport and part of world-class surfing destination, URBNSURF Melbourne, the new restaurant will have indoor and outdoor seating and will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with impressive views of the surf park.
As Australia’s first surf park, and the first of its kind in the world, URBNSURF Melbourne is set to pioneer a new, safe and inclusive way to surf. Within its crystal-clear, two-hectare surfing lagoon, URBNSURF Melbourne will deliver perfect, high-quality waves and offer up authentic experiences to surfers of all abilities.
Leading the kitchen at Three Blue Ducks Melbourne will be chefs, Darren Robertson, Andy Allen and Mark LaBrooy, who have already kicked off research trips, exploring the best of Victoria’s farms, wineries, craft breweries and artisan producers.
“We’re beyond excited about this new venue and bringing our brand to Melbourne to showcase our passion for good and honest food. This partnership is close to our heart – after all, we are a bunch of guys who love good food, the ocean and surfing,” says Darren.
Expect plenty of smoky flavours from the kitchen, which will include a pizza oven, rotisserie and charcoal pit, and plenty of fresh, locally-sourced produce. In Three Blue Ducks-style, the venue will have a kitchen garden, growing herbs and Australian natives such as lemon myrtle and salt bush
