Egalitarian Aussies have always embraced the picnic: the meal where everyone chips in a little and there’s always a spare vegan sausage for a kookaburra, a lamington crumb for the ants, or a slice of Auntie Rina’s home-made salami for a curious magpie.
Nowadays Melbourne dwellers don’t worry so much about the classic picnic problems like snakes (unless you’re near the Yarra!) or getting lost in an alternate dimension (unless it’s Hanging Rock you’re headed to), but every good picnicker needs a good picnic kit!
Melbournalia Picnic Packs come in tons of celebratory varieties and with an array of gorgeous Melbourne-made goodies - you’re sure to find something here to suit your favourite naturalist, park-lifer, rambler or lounger. Each and every Picnic Pack features a locally made Otto and Spike McFadyen Picnic Rug in 100% surplus (vintage!) Australian Shetland wool with moisture-proof backing.
So what are you waiting for? Put on the kettle, pack a few tinnies, and get your scones in order - the park is calling.

- Two Keep Cup "Brew Changemaker" glass reusable coffee cups in a classic Melbourne Black colourway
