Flavours is an increasingly popular annual event, so expect parking to be very limited. Save yourself the hassle and PT it – catch the 216, 219 or 220 bus or the number 72 Camberwell tram down Commercial Road, hop off at Prahran Market and it's just a short walk away down Izett Street, which adjoins Grattan Gardens. Or take the number 78 - 79 St Kilda / North Melbourne tram down Chapel Street, get off by Coles and walk down past Cato Street car park to Izett Street. You can also catch the train to Prahran, walk down Greville Street towards Chapel and into Grattan Street where you'll soon come upon the gardens.
Flavours is presented by the City of Stonnington and showcases some of Melbourne's best restaurants, cafes, chefs and food vendors from in and around the Prahran area. Don't miss out on a cultural and culinary feast at Flavours 2015 this March.
