Katandra West’s Bed and Broccoli is tipped to draw even more visitors to the region as the vegan bed and breakfast is being featured in a exhibition at Melbourne’s Federation Square.ESTELLE GRIEPINK July 4, 2014 4:49am
Unique: Katandra West's Nikki and Scott Medwell have their Bed and Broccoli business featured in a Melbourne exhibition.
‘‘Federation Story’’ is a free, interactive exhibition that traces the events, people and ideas that led to Federation and celebrates the diverse stories that have continued to shape Australia and its culture.
Bed and Broccoli is the brainchild of Katandra West couple Nikki and Scott Medwell.
Mrs Medwell said the idea for the business was born out of necessity.
The couple, who do not eat any foods containing animal by-products, were planning a weekend away when they discovered there was no purely vegan bed and breakfast in the country.
Bed and Broccoli remains the only vegan bed and breakfast in Australia and has had visitors from as far as Russia and the United States.
‘‘Eighty per cent of people who visit are vegans, but the other 20 per cent are comprised of vegetarians, ethical eaters, or people who are just curious,’’ Mrs Medwell said.
The Medwells are planning on expanding the property to include a fully-fledged animal sanctuary for ex-farm animals.
They are at 315 Marionvale Rd, Katandra West.
