We invite you to celebrate with us and your friends at the Mare & Foal Lawn – one of the best harbour-side vantage points with a spectacular view over the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

The picnic area is fully enclosed in a secure area where you will be able to stretch out and relax while enjoying your favourite snacks and a stunning view.
