Find a Public BBQ in Melbourne
There’s truly nothing more Australian than a BBQ surrounded by family or friends. It could be a quick dinner on a summer’s night or a full-on feast for lunch down at the beach. In fact, it’s such a big part of our culture that local councils provide hundreds of free BBQs in public spaces around the country.
The real question then is, how do you pick a good public BBQ spot? It’s never great rocking up to your local park with a all the goods for a cook-up only to realise there’s no BBQ.
Well, there’s a couple of neat ways to solve that problem.
The website Meat in a Park has a list of every publicly available bbq in Melbourne and almost all BBQs around Australia. They’ve got a nifty search function that shows BBQs around you or you can search by suburb. Simple.
Another way to find a place for a cook up is through your local council website, who keep a list of all the public BBQs for you. We’ve made that a little easier by linking some of them here (just click on your local council area).

You may be more interested in having a bbq in the proper great outdoors. If that’s the case – and let’s be honest, we all enjoy cooking in wide open spaces – you can visit the Parks Victoria website to check for public BBQs in the area you plan to visit next.
Always remember to clean up after yourself (and friends/family) to keep our shared spaces clean. Happy BBQing!
