A night under the stars in historic Maldon

Main Street Maldon will be transformed into an open air theatre and restaurant

Enjoy the magical atmosphere this weekend at Maldon’s highlight event of the year, the Maldon Twilight Dinner.

For one night only tables will line iconic Main Street Maldon, declared Australia’s first Notable Town by the National Trust in 1965, transforming the streetscape and creating an utterly unique visual spectacle.

Share fabulous food from local providers, wine from the region and enjoy wonderful entertainment from international duo Pavarotti and the Diva and the Beatles Show Band, Rubbersoul.

Now in its 13th year, the Maldon Twilight Dinner started as a way to showcase Maldon’s cafes and producers and was originally called Tastes of Gold. Now three times the size, the dinner draws crowds from the local community and interstate.

“This year we’re bringing back the idea of showcasing local producers by providing hampers as part of the ticket price,” says Pamela Jewson, Secretary Maldon Eat Drink Events Inc.

“They’ll be packed with local delicacies including baguettes from LeSel, Harcourt cherries, chocolates from the Maldon Lolly Shop, cheese from Goldfields Farmhouse Cheese, southern fried free range chicken, beef and salads from the Spotted Cow, Miss Pritchards Pantry and The Gold Exchange Café. ”

The Twilight Dinner is historically a sell-out event but spectator tickets are still available so you don’t have to miss out on the atmosphere and entertainment. Why not book a table and have dinner at one of the town’s many restaurants, pubs and cafes?

The Maldon Twilight Dinner is on this Saturday 13 January. For more information, event tickets, or, for something extra special, a ticket to get there in style on the Victorian Goldfields Railway, call 0417 150 709.
