So Is it worth it?

Based on these prices, let’s consider a daily value of $107 per guest – it can quickly prove its worth. Think about it, most people start their day with a coffee or juice, which can cost around $6 AUD. By mid-morning, a few soft drinks at $6.20 each can add up to $18.60. Approaching morning tea, perhaps you’d fancy a beer or two, costing $11.60 each. So, if you have 2 beers, you’re at $41.80.

Lunchtime rolls around, and you might want a drink, maybe a cocktail and another beer. Let’s add that, roughly $21, bringing us to $75. Assuming you don’t drink more at the bar, you might have a few drinks before dinner. Let’s say 2 more beers, putting you at $97. Now, for dinner, the fun begins – how about a cocktail during tea time? Add another $21, and we’re just shy of $120. At this point, we’ve already exceeded the daily cost.

While you might not drink this much every day, after surveying 10 people, these were the figures we arrived at. At the right price of $110 or lower, we personally believe it’s absolutely worth it. By the end of the night, for an average of 10 people, the price landed between $205.60 to $238.20 AUD. Ultimately, the decision depends on your preferences, how much you drink, and what you drink. If you don’t consume alcohol at all, this package may not be for you. However, if you don’t mind enjoying a few cold ones while meeting new friends, then it’s definitely the way to go.
