From 12:00pm on Sunday October 22, the Big Blue table will be welcoming guests with chilled sparkling wine and canapes on the Mount View Lawn, surrounded by the gentle sound of a harpist and gorgeous styling
Guests at the Big Blue Table will be served on long tables in a courtyard within a lovely grassed area, sounded by hedged gardens and stately trees, so hats will be a must to enjoy the Spring sunshine.
The event will be hosted by one of Australia’s most enduring media personalities, having notched up 30 years on television in early 2023, as host of many major premier sporting events, along with hit prime-time shows like Better Homes and Gardens.
Away from media, Johanna has been a board member of Beyond Blue for the past 9 years and splits her time living between the Lower Hunter and Sydney when she’s not travelling.
