CBD Spotlight: Volt Lane Precinct
Volt Lane is located in the heart of AlburyCBD. It boasts a variety of eateries, specialty shops, creative spaces and services with something for everyone.
Flourish Creative Studio was developed as a place where people could come and learn a new skill, meet new people and invest in themselves. They have a number of creatives that run workshops out of the studio.
With two workrooms to accommodate workshops and classes, there is plenty of room to learn in a beautiful setting, and their customers love the sense of achievement and learning a new skill in a lovely, relaxed, supportive and professional environment.
You can book kid’s holiday workshop programs and weekly sessions, including jewellery making, macrame, weaving, terrarium making, watercolour and much more, through their website.
Known for its large, delicious menu and fast, friendly service, Chopstix House has been a mainstay in Volt Lane since 2016. Their menu is based on authentic Asian flavours and covers everything you’d expect, including stir fry, noodle dishes, soups, Chinese and Japanese dumplings, and so much more.
They offer their full menu for dine-in and takeaway and are open for lunch and dinner Monday – Saturday.

Wayne and Jenny Falconer opened the first HotBake at 473 Dean Street, Albury in 1972 and has been baking ever since. In 2015, they opened their Volt Lane location alongside two more stores in Wodonga and Lavington.
It’s hard not to be tempted by the aroma of fresh, hot cinnamon doughnuts when you walk by the bakery, but that’s not all they sell. Known for a wide variety of pies, cakes, wraps and pre-made lunches, you’ll be hard-pressed not to find something you’ll love on their menu.
