Our Mystery Picnic Dates truly are “Date Night” reimagined!
We won’t give away too much - it is a mystery after all! But we will tell you this: it’s a fun, intimate and new way to explore Melbourne and surroundings!
The itinerary for the day is pre-planned and booked for you, and throughout the day you and your partner will solve clues, puzzles and riddles together to reveal each step of your journey. Each stop will add something to your experience, be it a local delicacy to put in your hamper, or a beautiful spot for a couple’s selfie.
So, what are you waiting for? Time to change up your regular Saturday brunch date and add a bit of mystery to your weekend!
Your first stop for the day is where you will pick up your basket. The pick-up time is from 9 to 11 am, and then the pace of the day is completely up to you and your date! A few things to note;
Reserve around 5-6 hours for the experience
You will need a car to get around on the day
Only available on Saturdays
For this route, you can choose to pick up the basket in central Melbourne (Richmond), or closer to the region (Yarra Valley), so just pick whichever suits you best!

Can you accommodate for dietary requirements?
Absolutely! Just let us know when you book your picnic, by filling in the form field ‘Dietary Requirements’.
I would like to give this as a gift! Do you have any gift vouchers?
Of course! You can purchase a gift voucher directly via our website, which can be used toward any of our experiences. Just pick you amount, write your message, and you’re done! The recipient can then go on and browse our experiences, and pick the one they fancy.
What is your rescheduling and cancellation policy?
As we pre-plan and book you in for your stops along the way, we need 3 days notice if you wish to reschedule or cancel your experience.
What is your wet weather policy?
Some of our destinations have indoor areas, and most others have undercover areas. However, unfortunately not all our destinations are rain proof. Feel free to speak to our friendly staff about which picnic options can cater to all seasons or if you’d like to reschedule your picnic due to forecasted rain fall, make sure you give us 3 days notice.
How long does the experience go for?
We’ve designed it to be roughly a 5-6 hour round trip, including enjoying your picnic. But you can definitely take longer than this if you want to go on a few detours to explore the region a bit more!
Looking for something a bit shorter? Have a look at our Mystery Food Walks.
What time should I book the experience for?
The basket pick-up window is between 9 and 11 am, but you can decide your specific start time and your pace for the day! If you want our recommendation, we’d suggest to start your picnic around 9 - 10am. This will give you plenty of time to solve the clues, explore surrounding sites along the way without feeling like you have to rush through the day.
When will I get my clues?
You will receive an SMS the day before your experience with a link to your clues and experience details. You pick up your hamper at your first stop of the day.
What kind of food will end up in the basket?
We won’t give away too much here, it is part of the mystery after all! But you can safely expect gourmet foods from local artisan producers, including your traditional picnic foods (such as cheese, meats, fruits and
crackers etc.). And naturally, as artisan producers will be unique to the
different destinations, the final picnic content varies slightly between them.
