DETAILS
Charcoal Lane enables Aboriginal and disadvantaged young people to gain experience in a supported, real work environment as part of an integrated program which includes personal skills development and accredited education in hospitality. The name ‘Charcoal Lane', documented in an Archie Roach song, (a prominent Aboriginal performer), has significant meaning as a local meeting place in Victorian Aboriginal history. Built in 1865, the impressive bluestone building was originally home to the English, Scottish and Australian Bank Limited and from 1973 – 1992 was the important home of the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service. The interior features hand painted ceiling panels and individually constructed ‘eel trap' lampshades and reflects the restaurant philosophy of cultures coming together and facilitating an intertwining of people. The food fuses native Australian produce with modern technique, complimented by a strong Australian wine list, celebrating a range of both iconic and boutique producers.
