Earth meets Sea – A unique NSW South Coast Long Table Dining experience

On Friday night, join us for a very special evening on the banks of the Wagonga Inlet. As the sun sets behind Gulaga mountain, enjoy a pre-dinner drink, sample traditional indigenous foods from a gourmet grazing table, and tempt yourself with some freshly shucked Narooma oysters.

You will then make your way into a waterfront marquee and be treated to a three-course long table dinner - featuring the best of South Coast produce and NSW wines and beers. At 8.00pm the sky comes alive with a fireworks display over Wagonga Inlet. From there, you can either linger at the marquee to enjoy a few more drinks, or wander down to the main stage area to enjoy a nine piece party band, Big Boss Groove until 10pm.

The Long Table Dinner commences at 5:30pm and concludes at 9.30pm. A limited number of tickets are available at $160 per person including drinks for this exclusive experience. Book now!
