Celebrate winter 2023 in Camberwell Junction
Article posted: July 6, 2023
The air is crisp and cool; evenings played out to the soundtrack of rain on the roof; and warm and cosy are the order of the day.
Winter is a beautiful time of year in Camberwell Junction, where hot chocolate flows, warming gourmet meals are served, new season fashion awaits, and where the precinct comes alive with activities and fun.
This winter, take your warm and cosy out of the house and join us in celebrating everything that is wonderful about the cooler months.
Here are our top picks for having a wonderful winter in Camberwell Junction shopping precinct.
Refine your winter wardrobe
Most of our wardrobes consist of a mix between on-trend fashion pieces and classic investment pieces. This winter, they are one and the same thing, with Camberwell Junction’s boutique fashion stores taking these classic pieces out from their supporting role and into the limelight.
Starting with coats, the two key pieces every fashionista will be wearing this season is the classic trench coat and the leather jacket.
Trench coats should be a classic cut and in neutral shades of camel, beige and grey, while leather jackets can be traditional biker style, bomber jacket, or cropped.
Kilts are shaping up to be the hero pieces of this winter’s fashion. They’re a little bit 70s punk revival but cute. Think pink hues and flouncy pleats. Team it with boots or even pants for a more androgenous look.
Boots are also big this winter and, like coats, we’re talking classic: think cowboy or biker.

Cold afternoons are made for trying your hand at recipes passed down from generation to generation, or fancy fare from far flung places.

And when you’re looking for the freshest fruit and vegetables, as well as meat and deli goods, Camberwell Fresh Food Market is the place to visit. The market vendors source their produce directly from wholesalers and makers, providing you with the best quality food.
Put your fresh produce together with staples and international ingredients from one of Camberwell Junction’s supermarkets, which often stock hard-to-find or ingredients specific to your recipe.
Of course, the only thing that is better than a day cooking up a storm and an evening sharing it with friends, is enjoying a meal cooked by a creative culinary genius.
Whether it’s hitting up your favourite burger or pizza joint, trying the latest fusion cuisine, or experiencing flavours of the world one dish at a time without leaving the local area, dinner is ready every night of the week in Camberwell Junction.

Housed in a former auction house, Young’s Wine Rooms has a romantic Mediterranean feel, while just a few doors down, East End Wine Bar rocks a warm yet nostalgic vibe.

Winter is also a wonderful time to nurture and release our creativity! Why not get some friends together and book a session at Frida’s Sip N’ Paint, a luxuriously decorated space where a professional artist will walk you through creating your own masterpiece, while you feast on drinks and nibbles.
