Being based in the Yarra Valley gives me locality to so much beauty, culture and activity while still being only an hour away from Melbourne. Please join me with my adventures locally and wherever else my travels take me!

Dromana Drive-In Entry


Are you looking for something fun, exciting and different which is suitable for families, friends and couples alike? If the answer is yes, then you cannot go past seeing a film at the Dromana 3 Drive-In.

Park in at the Drive-in


Situated in the picture perfect beachside area of Dromana, which is part of the Mornington Peninsula, having a movie night at the Dromana 3 Drive-In is a fun evening activity and just an hours drive from Melbourne.

Kids Meal Deal Menu held by Woody!


An old-style retro eatery named "Shel's Diner' is located on site which sells all the popular movie-type snacks and meals such as burgers, hot dogs, fries and of course, the movie watching standard favourite - buttered popcorn!

Life size movie characters!


Kids meals were available as a meal deal. For $11 they could choose from either a hot dog or chips, a Pop Top or 350ml bottle of water, with a bag of popcorn included in the deal. It was good value!

Memorabillia


We had prime parking, deciding to reverse our SUV into our car spot and sit in the back with the roof up. We made ourselves super comfortable and cosy with cushions, pillows and blankets!

Lots of quirkiness inside the diner!


As we were set up nice and early, the kids even had time for a quick run around in the playground!

Three movies were showing at 7:45pm, with a second selection of three films then showing at the later timeslot of 9:45pm.

During non-daylight savings times, both sessions run an hour earlier.

The Bright Yellow Diner - Can't Miss It!


The diner was decorated with movie memorabilia, including life-size statues.

There were lots of quirky themed movie themed items and all were very interesting to have a look at.

Some perhaps a little too lifelike - such as "IT" the clown!

You are allowed to bring your own drinks and snacks, but they do encourage you to visit the diner also.



All in all, I thoroughly recommend visiting the Dromana 3 Drive-In for a wonderful night out!
