What you'll also experience on the night:
SISUU Tonic will help kick off your evening with a serving of "Courage tonic" to all guests on arrival.

In a world increasingly dominated by digital interactions, the Circle of Courage serves as a poignant reminder of the irreplaceable power of genuine human connections. The pandemic-induced isolation has left over half of respondents feeling lonelier, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (2020).
