You have got to love an Aussie Summer, there is nothing better than the warm sun, sandy feet, glowing skin and a glass or two of vino. Now that the festive season is behind us, we are looking forward to enjoying some sunshine and time with family and friends. What better way to enjoy some sun than with some summer sippers; heading to some stunning Venues to soak up the rays and the reds.
Here are a few of our faves…

Supafish is a neon-lit phenomenon, breaching momentarily on Melbourne’s Yarra River over summer. Supafish boasts a food menu by Hotel Jesus. As for drinks, its sunset Coronas and a phenomenal range of cocktails and wines. Sounds like the perfect Summer Sipper to us. Photo Source

We love drinking near water, and The Arbory provides just that, an uninterrupted view of the Yarra and Southbank mixed with stunning drinks and a Hamptons style menu Their G&T’s will turn your head, the Lobster Roll is worth the calories or you could simply enjoy a refreshing Aperol Spritz.
