Hospitality and Swipers Gully

Swipers GullyAt ELTHAM, we strive to ensure that all our young people are world-ready. A crucial element to this is equipping them with the life-skills they need to graduate from college.

ELTHAM owns and operates a Hospitality Training Centre and fully-functional winery, café and restaurant called Swipers Gully.

Students in Years 8 and 9 operate the College Coffee Shop within the restaurant, with particular focus on Year 9 students exploring employment and work experience opportunities.

The Centre also allows Years 10, 11 and 12 students to participate in a number of VET and VCE options as well as Vocational certificates – with most of our young people participating in at least one.

Students use their skills to work in the industry, with graduates going on to work at internationally acclaimed restaurants.

The Swipers Gully Restaurant is open to the public during the school term: Monday to Thursday. Guests need to be seated between 6.30pm – 7.00pm. The Term 2 menu is available here.

Andy’s great passion for food was first inspired when he was a child growing up in the countryside of England. His parents grew everything in their backyard; he would watch his mother in awe, creating delectable dishes all from seasonal, local produce.

Initially training with Paul Heathcote in Lancashire, England, Andy continued to gain experience by working at various premium restaurants around the world. These restaurants included Les Crayeres in France, a two Michelin Star restaurant, and more notably, D.O.M with Alex Atala, a Brazilian chef whose restaurant is rated the 4th best restaurant in the world by the S.Pellegrino’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

Andy Harmer has made a huge impact on the Melbourne culinary scene. Before taking over The Point Albert Park, Andy was Executive Chef at Vue de Monde working alongside Shannon Bennett for seven years, followed by his appointment as Head Chef at Virginia Plain.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy Andy’s international expertise in our unique Swipers Gully Restaurant setting.
