Australians have it pretty good, we think. A white Christmas is definitely nice, but a bright Christmas is even better. Christmas here is all about sun, skies, fresh seafood and maybe a trip to the beach or a round of backyard cricket.
It means that instead of thick woollen jumpers, we wear bare shoulders; instead of blasting the heating indoors, we can take our Christmas crackers out onto the patio. And it means that all our celebrations of the season – whether they’re relaxed or more formal; with family, friends, or colleagues – can embrace carefree summer vibes.
We might be biased, but we think there are few things that say carefree summer vibes more than mouth-watering food, cool drinks and great company overlooking Sydney Harbour at King Street Wharf.
You can check out the functions info for all our venues here, or get in touch using the contact details below. But because it can be hard to choose between so many great options, we thought we might help you narrow it down a little to what you’re looking for first.
