Ruby Saltbush Cafe Opening Soon
The Cafe is currently closed due the state-wide lockdown as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

We have been working on an exciting new project behind the scenes at Billabong and have taken the opportunity to make the café our own and are pleased to announce that the ‘Ruby Saltbush Café’ will be opening soon.

A tasty new menu inspired by our abundance of seasonal produce in the Goulburn Valley and a range of gourmet take-home treats is being developed and we can’t wait to share it with you.

And, later this year you can look forward to a unique all-weather space for private dining, functions, meetings or lazy Sunday afternoons with friends.

The Story Behind The Name

The Ruby Saltbush is a native plant that is indigenous to our region and we also grow it right here at Billabong.

We think this pretty little saltbush fits right in here at our social enterprise!  Like Billabong, this quaint succulent is all about sustainability and tolerance.  Its bright ruby coloured fruits are a real jewel in the crown, just like the achievements of our supported employees with a disability that grow your plants.

The Ruby Saltbush flowers and fruits year-round and is a bush food therefore it also adds culinary value to our dine in and take-home menu.  The Ruby Saltbush depicts the flavours of life from sweet through to salty!
