Wyndham City’s West End Experience is back for one last time this season. Don’t miss your chance to enjoy the pop-up dining precinct with 15 different restaurants, cafes and bars.

From 16 – 18 April, you can enjoy long lunches and alfresco dining under the stars.

The West End Experience is part of Wyndham City’s COVID-recovery strategy, that includes outdoor dining experiences, parklets and even trials of shared pathways.

Wyndham City’s Creative City Portfolio holder Cr Marcel Mahfoud said Wyndham City, with support from State Government funding and the Business and Property Owner Associations is very keen to provide the community affordable and accessible opportunities to start socialising, enjoying entertainment and supporting local businesses.

“The West End Experience has proved very popular and it’s back for one last time with a jam-packed program, this is one you and the family don’t want to miss,” Cr Marcel Mahfoud said.

“The Youth Street Surfer Bus will be there on Friday night. Saturday is the perfect time to come with the family with Frozen 2 playing on the big screen and we will have face painting for the kids! For the car enthusiasts, we have the Westside Cruisers Hot rod and Custom Car Club on Sunday.”

“You will also get the chance to have a reptile encounter on Sunday, which is perfect for your lizard and snake loving kids!”

“This event is another strategic example of delivering on the Wyndham 2040 Vision where the Community told us they wanted a safe, vibrant evening economy that supports local jobs.”

Adrian from AGES Pizza said the West End Experience has been a fantastic for them, not only has it brought new people and customers to the store, but it’s also breathed life back into the street after the toughest of circumstances.

“The live music, the lights and the walk ways all create a great atmosphere that has been lacking in Watton Street and we hope that you continue to promote our street with events such as this in the future,” added Adrian.

The April West End Experience will again have a diverse range of cuisines from burgers and pizza, pub classics, cheesecake to Thai, Indonesian, Filipino and Indian.

Activations such as West End Experience, parklets, temporary cycle routes and pop-up parks at Point Cook, Williams Landing, Station Place and Soho Village are all ways for the community and businesses to trial and test ideas and concepts. Feedback, data and evidence collected during these trials and pilots helps us to guide longer term planning, design and creative use of our spaces.

With new cycle routes you can walk or bike ride to enjoy the West End Experience. Parking is also available with 202 car parks right next door.
