Behold, The Fountain of Goose – a vodka fountain is popping up on the Gold Coast this October

Behold, The Fountain of Goose – a vodka fountain is popping up on the Gold Coast this October

Sitting around the edge of a glorious marble fountain, tossing a coin in for good luck and sipping spritzes in the street is the kind of situation reserved for dreamy European holidays. So, what if we told you that you could be sitting on a deck chair in the sunshine sipping cocktails in a French Riviera-themed setting right here on the Gold Coast? Plus, what if we told you that cocktail was free and was being served to you from a vodka bar within a giant, custom-built fountain? We're not pulling your leg, this is actually happening.

From October 9–13, The Resort precinct at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre (outdoors, near the grand staircase) will provide the backdrop for the Fountain of Goose – an open-air pop-up precinct from vodka makers Grey Goose, complete with a marble-finished working fountain, all designed to bring a French-style escape to the Gold Coast. Here’s the best part – the vodka-themed fountain will double as a bar! It’ll be decorated with bottles of Grey Goose’s current limited-edition release (a collaboration with Parisian fashion label Maison LaBiche) and will be serving free cocktails to locals at allocated afternoon timeslots from Wednesday October 9 to Sunday October 13.

That’s right, folks – all adult-aged visitors to The Fountain of Goose will be offered complimentary mini cocktails of Grey Goose vodka, lime and soda (responsibly served at one per customer) and will also be invited to lounge around the fountain in the deck chairs and soak up the sunshine with a cocktail in hand. Plus, when you visit the vodka-themed precinct, you’ll get a Grey Goose coin to toss into the fountain and will be encouraged to make a wish in the spirit of joie de vivre (French for ‘joy of living’). There will also be entertainment and pop-up performances rolling out across the afternoons and evenings – the acts will change each day, so you’ll never know quite what to expect (also a great reason for more than one visit).

You’ll find The Fountain of Goose at The Resort at Pacific Fair on these dates and times:

  • Wednesday, 9 October, 1:00–5:00 pm
  • Thursday, 10 October, 4:00–8:00 pm
  • Friday, 11 October, 2:00–6:00 pm
  • Saturday 12 October, 1:00–5:00 pm
  • Sunday 13 October, 1:00–5:00 pm
