The Golden Plate awards are a reliable guide for people looking for great places to eat out
in the Ballarat-Daylesford, Bendigo and Central Victoria, and Geelong -Otway regions of Victoria.
Each venue in this guide has been judged twice without notice over several months for up to 40 factors by our independent panel of judges headed by "Industry Legend" Rita Erlich. Awards are presented late to the highest scoring venues in each region (Regional Awards) and the three combined regions (State Awards).
Extracts from the judges' reports are included here for each venue.
