Our Story

We are REAL Pizza Pasta Salads

Located in the Victorian tourist town of Port Campbell, we are an eatery transitioning from a typical restaurant formula to one which puts connected responsibility, community and information sharing at the forefront of what we do.

We believe your food becomes you, and this belief motivates us to inspire, link, support and sustain our community in many ways. Our seasonal ingredient choices connect us to our environment and community while also reflecting our personal responsibility to the land.

Our permaculture garden

The Place of Wonder

The Place of Wonder is a 3-acre, edible habitat on the outskirts of Port Campbell, which is a place of learning and living. It is my home, my connection to the environment and my teacher.

The Place of Wonder garden helps supply seasonal produce to REAL Pizza Pasta Salads, and is where the art of producing and preparing sustainable wholefoods combines. It is the site of edible gardening workshops, occasional garden tours and fresh produce tastings.

A message from Kylie

I’m Kylie Treble and I believe in you! I love and respect the space where I live and I want to encourage you to love and respect your space, too.

I feel that by connecting authentically with our food and community we will be able enhance this together.

I am developing REAL Pizza Pasta Salads to help this – to question traditions and to introduce new ways of discovering, engaging and connecting with our environments and each other.

It is a journey where I foresee all manner of possibilities and one should NEVER ignore a ‘possible’!
