An immersive Mediterranean experience in the heart of the gc.

Wishing you were in Europe? We’ve got the next best thing –

Cc: our latest work, Aperol’s largest activation in Queensland to date!

Teaming up with Aperol and Justin Lane our team has been busy behind the scenes for the past few months bringing to life Casa Aperol Gold Coast; the Mediterranean oasis transporting you to Italy, sitting in our very own Aussie backyard at Burleigh Heads. This 9-week activation channels the illustrious European coastline as two icons collide to create the ultimate Italian experience.

Maake Creative is proud to have managed this project from conceptualisation to installation and the many facets of project management required for this multi-location activation. We’re also incredibly grateful for the wonderful preferred suppliers who came on-board for another epic event.

Every Sunday from 11 September until 6 November, Casa Aperol x Justin Lane will bring all the vivacity and warmth of a European summer. Pop into venue to see the beautiful art pieces we commissioned from local artist Lisa Hu, sip on an Aperol Spritz, and groove to a range of talented Dj’s and local live musicians carefully selected to evoke the aperitivo lifestyle. Trick your taste buds into thinking you really are in Italy with Head Chef Steven Brand’s Mediterranean-inspired menu, including freshly grilled seafood over the live robata grill.

Each Sunday as part of the activation, a lucky draw will take place for groups of four friends to set sail on our luxury, Aperol themed charted yacht in partnership with YOT Club! Enjoy fresh seafood, flowing cocktails and stunning views on the three-hour luxury yacht experience. Simply head down to Casa Aperol during the 9 week activation period for your chance to win this rare experience.
