The most Important Meal of the Day

We understand walking the greens and standing all day can be tiring, so you’ll need to fuel up before starting for the day. There are great cafes serving up breakfast close to the venue, like Early Bird Cafe (not open Wednesdays) and Canvas eatery, just a short walk through QEII Square. If you’re starting your day in Wodonga, get down to Beanstation for the perfect brekky. Just looking to source your daily caffeine? No problem, we’ll show you how to coffee like a local.
