We are often treated to glorious sunny afternoons in the midst of autumn here in Perth, and our most recent JVA Wellness event was no exception. To celebrate a busy start to the year, we invited our clients to join us for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of award-winning Optus Stadium.
To kick-start the occasion, our joyful and energetic JVA community met for drinks and canapes at Australia’s largest pub, The Camfield. Situated along the picturesque banks of the Swan River, the micro-brewery boasts unrivalled 180-degree views and was the perfect meeting place before the main event. Fortunately, our thirsty group weren’t struggling for choice with an impressive 175 beer taps, showcasing West Australian’s iconic beers and an extensive pizza menu, we were well prepared to start our exclusive 2.5km tour through Optus Stadium.
Our wonderful guides greeted us outside the epic stadium where they gave us a briefing of the behind the scenes tour. We then trundled off in our respective teams and started the journey through the stunning, state-of-the-art stadium where our knowledgeable guides entertained us with a number of unique facts relating to the 60,000 seat venue and surround.
We experienced the inner sanctum of the stadium, from the locker and training rooms to the media and corporate boxes, we certainly felt like VIP’s!
To our amazement, reigning AFL premiers the West Coast Eagles were also enjoying the space, and we were fortunate enough to catch them on their training day. Watching the Eagles train at this world-class venue was a particular highlight for a number of our attendees.
One of the stadium’s unique features (and our favourite part of the tour) is the view from the Sky View Lounge. Held on the top level, the space showcases panoramic views of Swan River, Perth City and the Indian Ocean. Each group were able to enjoy the space at their leisure, some experiencing a beautiful autumn sunset, whilst others were dazzled with the lights from Claisebrook Cove and the CBD.
This event proved to be our most successful to date! We cannot thank our JVA family and friends enough for the support you have shown our Wellness campaign over the past 18 months. We will continue with this movement and look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
Happy and Healthy Regards,
