River Terrace

An iconic Melbourne bar and cafe nestled in the historic Federation Wharf vaults

The original waterfront icon in Melbourne. Escape the daily grind at Riverland’s urban beer garden hideaway!

This iconic venue is situated on the banks of the Yarra in the historic Federation Wharf vaults, just below Fed Square. Open year-round, the outdoor venue is the ideal spot for beers and bites while soaking up the summer sun or basking under heaters and warming up with one of the winter cocktails in the cooler months.

Riverland provides a relaxed, warm atmosphere where people can enjoy the company of friends or grab a quick drink and BBQ sausage before the game.

Popstic Ice Cream

Treat yourself to a silky smooth and delicious Popstic ice cream from the brand new shop at Riverland. Popstic serves up creme anglaise-based ice cream and sorbets made without compromise and in small batches in the Popstic kitchen.

The generous, honest servings are designed to delight – there’s no Tiramisu, Nutella or wacky flavours, over the top inclusions, garish decorations and definitely no syringes. Just classic flavours made simply and well – Chocolate, French Vanilla, Salted Caramel, Macadamia Praline, Raspberry Sorbet, Coconut Sorbet and fresh seasonal flavours using local and fresh produce where possible.
