NEW YEARS EVE FLY & DINE – NOW BOOKING

The end of 2020 is nearly upon us and that has got to be something to celebrate!

So, come and escape to the skies onboard the BA i360 pod before sharing your last meal of the year with friends and family at our beachside restaurant, West Beach.

We have laid on a decadent three-course set menu, with fresh ingredients from local suppliers with gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options are available.  Why not upgrade your ticket to a Sparkling Wine Experience and toast goodbye to 2020 and bring in 2021?

Our News Years Eve Fly & Dine packages are available from 12 midday until 7pm and are subject to availability.
