The Exchange Hotel celebrated New Year’s quite differently this year.
The whole beer garden was filled with sand, taking on a very ‘beachy’ theme.
Five DJs lined the balcony in the beer garden, entertaining what owners Colin and Jana Thorpe said was a ‘‘constant 250 person crowd’’ throughout the night.
The night also boasted two extra bars located in the beer garden, which are now permanent.
Guests were also entertained by an all-male ‘wet t-shirt competition’.
Colin and Jana said it was a ‘‘brilliant night’’.
‘‘It went really well, everyone had a lot of fun and everyone really loved the sand,’’ Jana said.
She said they plan to have the sand available for the next New Year’s Eve as well, or may decide on something different but just as popular.
Jana also said Australia Day celebrations are being planned, and are expected to be ‘‘huge’’.
