Dine Out(side)

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen the largest ever downturn in the hospitality industry, with restaurants and cafes suffering a significant decline in business. With warmer weather well and truly upon us and the COVID-19 safety benefits of eating in the fresh air, the City of Whittlesea is proactively helping local businesses to implement ‘al-fresco’ style dining options to encourage new and return customers.

The City of Whittlesea has launched the the Dine Out(side) campaign to encourage residents to eat out and enjoy the outdoor dining areas of local cafes and restaurants, as well as to enjoy the refreshed streetscapes around the City of Whittlesea in support of local hospitality businesses. The campaign also aims to inspire people from our neighbouring municipalities to visit the City of Whittlesea and explore our outdoor dining options.

The Dine Out(side) campaign will run from November through to the end of January and will include mobile and static billboards, cinema advertising, social media advertising more!

Please join us in encouraging residents to enjoy great dining out experiences and help promote the City of Whittlesea's wonderful outdoor dining options to visitors. You can download and print a poster below to display in your business.
