New Year’s Eve at The Star
Well 2020, it’s been a time. Let’s all collectively agree to put the weirdest/hardest year in recent history to bed and usher in a brand new year in spectacular fashion (because let’s be honest, if ever there was a year to be a total baller on New Years Eve this is it!). As always, The Star Gold Coast is dishing up a smorgasbord of things to see, do and devour, from pretty picnics on the lawn through to fine feasts and sophisticated soirees. Read on for a run-down of what’s happening across the venue …
NYE at Garden Kitchen & Bar
If fireworks, food and fun sound like your vibe for New Years, Garden Kitchen & Bar is the place to be! The expansive venue is serving up three very tempting options for partygoers this New Year’s Eve.
