ELTHAM College owns and operates a Hospitality Training Centre and fully-functional winery, cafe and restaurant called Swipers Gully. Young people 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 young people in Years 10, 11 and 12 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. The Swipers Gully restaurant is open to the public, so come join us for a delicious meal and you will also be helping our students gain nationally accredited training qualifications in Hospitality. Guest Chef evenings are usually held twice a year, with a 5 course dinner matched to wines; they have previously featured renowned local chefs Stephen Mercer (Mercers, Eltham) and Gordon Brown (Brownkortes).
