    Cabarita’s Halcyon House has become even more exclusive

    Halcyon House Cabarita NSW North Coast

    Halcyon House on NSW’s North Coast is set to become even more exclusive when it reopens on July 2, 2020. The divine Paper Daisy restaurant will only serve in house guests for breakfast and lunch although it will be open to the public for dinner.

    An added bonus to your stay is the inclusion of a four course dinner at Paper Daisy each night.

    With winter starting, a stay at one of Australia’s most instagrammable locations, set beachside in Cabarita is a perfect break for those wishing for some sun. And unlike Queensland, NSW borders are open.

    “COVID-19 has impacted greatly on the tourism and hospitality industry, so with the help of Tourism Australia’s #HolidayHereThisYear campaign, we are hopeful and optimistic that many Australians will choose to support our industry and regional communities. We would love to welcome guests to our slice of paradise at Cabarita Beach,” said General Manager, Mauro De Riso.

    There are several additional measures in place, including stringent cleaning that allow Halcyon House to offer an increased level of service and attentiveness where guests can feel safe.

    Celebrity junkies and racing fanatics will not be able to resist the irresistible pull that 2021’s Monaco Grand Prix will exert. Following the cancellation of  the 2020 Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix and the 2020 Monaco Historic Grand Prix  three Grand Prix will be organised within the space of one month.

    The 12th edition of Monaco Historic Grand Prix, initially planned for 8-10th May 2020, will now be organised from 23-25 April 2021. This will be followed by the 4th Monaco E-Prix (8th May 2021), and the 78th Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix (20-23 May 2021).

    This is a huge logistical challenge for the team and staff at Automobile Club de Monaco, for all major players and authorities of the Principality of Monaco, as well as for the 3,000 volunteers – among them 650 stewards and track marshals – whose role will be crucial for the success of these three events.

    A visit to the Grand Prix is not complete without the following VVIP experiences:

    1. Party with the Stars at Jimmy’z

    Situated in Monte Carlo, Jimmy’z is the place for the uber rich and the royal so make sure you are dressed in your best bling for the chance to swing it with stars like Bieber, DeCaprio, Bono and more.

    1. Book the Ultimate VIP Table at the Grand Prix

    The Amber Lounge offers the most expensive and extravagant F1 lounge in the world. Be at the heart of the action whether that is watching the race or rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous. Prices can be anywhere between $8000 to $30,000 (approx.).

    1. Drive An F1 Car

    For around $5500 the ultimate driving experience is yours. Test your skills on a real mono-post, around a circuit in France and then on the streets of Monaco. You will be trained and coached for the ultimate adrenaline rush.
