Whether it be a Christmas themed meal, or canapes with drinks, there's not better way to round off the year with a function in a world class environment. The Avantidrome is centred around a purpose built wooden velodrome and host to a range of other facilities, including function rooms and spaces suitable for groups of all sizes, it is the perfect place to host your function.
Get right in the middle of the action with a function held on the Infield - a large space set up close to the majestic cycling track - or hold an intimate event in one of the Avanti Lounges. There are inspiring corporate packages also where you can spend the day at the Avantidrome track with a guided tour of the high-performance facility and hear from world champion cyclist Alison Shanks. Your team can even have a go on the track with a fully supervised coaching session.
The Bikery Catering are right on site to offer you a range of fresh delicious food and beverage options, not matter how big or small. Whatever you choose, the team will help to give your guests a truly memorable experience.
The first blossoms are upon us in the city of trees! While we are hoping some better weather is not too far away, the rain hasn't stopped us freshen up the menu. The pancakes sure are a favourite but you will find various options to keep the belly happy, rain hail or shine :)
