When ticking off your shopping list, why not shop local and get everything in one place?
Here are some great gifts and experiences you can purchase right here in Victoria Harbour.
Elesha from Kep Whitley is a pastry chef that is wildly passionate about food and the joy of sharing it with others. So instead of purchasing from a supermarket, why not support a local chocolatery and buy one of her Christmas Bon Bon Chocolate Boxes made with love. You can choose from a pack of 4 or 12 with an assortment of her delectable chocolates of your choice, with prices starting from $20.00.
Gift an experience your loved ones won’t forget. You can purchase gift vouchers from Kayak Melbourne's website to help your friends and family enjoy Victoria Harbour’s surrounds from a whole new perspective on the water.
