- For the Dance–Lover – Music equals dancing, go on…. Dance like nobody is watching, you know you want to!
- For the Littlies – While you enjoy the food, the wine, the comedy, the music and the dancing, your little cherubs can enjoy the NIWA Kid Zone. It will be a hive of activity with inflatables, face painting, mussel themed creative area and more!
