An immersive theatrical journey for the senses will take over the iconic Hotel Palisade this winter. From August 25–28, A Journey Most Unusual invites curious adventurers to travel through a world that combines fantasy and reality as it tells the peculiar tale of Hendrick's Gin.

In partnership with theatrical collective Broad Encounters, this first-of-its-kind production will see commanding figures, including the mysterious Mr Foggerty, scent seller and aromachologist Madame Ruby and the dark-yet-playful underworld seductress Siren guide guests through six theatrically designed spaces that will awaken each of the five senses through song, art, dance, music and tantalising Hendrick's Gin cocktails. Guests will play an interactive role as they move through each world, which will unveil the masterful craft behind the much-loved gin.

All of the ticket proceeds will be donated to Broad Encounters via Australian Cultural Funding, helping to facilitate the independent company's future works.

A Journey Most Unusual takes place at Hotel Palisade on August 25–28. For more info and to buy tickets, head to the website.
