Escape winter for an afternoon of island-style feasting with the whole family.
If you're hankering for a mid-winter tropical escape, Lulu's Luau could be just the ticket. Get a taste of the Pacific and beat the winter blues at this lively celebration of culture and cuisine, taking place as part of the Welly On a Plate festival.
Gather up the whole whanau and celebrate island style with an afternoon of Pacific fare, colourful drinks and live entertainment.
Transport yourself to an island paradise as you tuck into Pacific delicacies including tuna poke, ika mata, palusami, chop suey and the crowning glory — a spit roasted pig.
Wash it all down with island-inspired cocktails (or mocktails for the young'uns) and unwind to chilled beats by local musos. The perfect winter remedy and cheaper than a plane ticket.
