Much to our delight, the Australia Day public holiday falls on a Monday, which means it’s the last time we can take advantage of a three-day weekend for a while. 

So, to make sure you’re soaking every second of that long weekend, we’ve teamed up with The Star to round up three unmissable events to lock in.  

Sip And Snack Under The Sun

Loaded with lush greenery, delicious drinks, delicious food and an unrivalled al fresco setting, Garden Kitchen & Bar is the perfect place to soak up the sun and good times this long weekend. 

With live entertainment, games and an array of craft beers there’s plenty of reasons to venture down to their sun-drenched deck to celebrate with friends and family. Plus, you’ll be able to tuck into some Aussie specials from the container kitchen on The Lawn like Long Smoked Milly Hill Lamb Ribs, Warmed potato salad with homemade BBQ sauce and lemon cheek and Garden Pavlova with summer berries, whipped cream and passionfruit. We’ll take one of each.

Situated by the Star’s stunning pool, Harvest Buffet is the perfect place for both a ‘grammable and delicious feed this long weekend.

Get ready for cheesy potato bake, cottage pie, hearty beef rissoles and a tasty giant sausage roll. Plus, let’s not forget the iconic chocolate fountain alongside pavlova, Wagon Wheel cake, Golden Gaytime slice and more.

Soak Up Sporting Action

For the sport fanatics, rest easy knowing you can satisfy cravings of all kinds of codes at The Star’s Sports Bar. Featuring a monstrous widescreen television, frosty beers, delicious vinos, spirits and snacks, you’re sure to be set.

If all that barracking leaves you famished, make sure to try out their juicy Aussie Burger complete with Australian beef patty, fried egg, beetroot, cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion. Guests must be 18 or over to enter Sports Bar.
