Ferrari Portofino First Australian Drives;
The all-new Ferrari Portofino made its debut on Australian roads recently, travelling from the stunning beachside of Bondi to the seaside hamlet of Pretty Beach on the New South Wales Central Coast.
To begin the drive, the cars gathered together at the latest Michael McMann designed beachside hot spot, The Pacific Club Bondi Beach, for breakfast canapes designed by acclaimed Australian chef Bret Cameron. A fleet of Ferrari Portofino cars were parked on the porte-cochère of the Pacific Bondi luxury development awaiting their departure.
After taking the keys and driving along the famous Bondi beachfront on Campbell Parade, the prestige convoy of Maranello’s GT car headed towards Saddles, the Central Coast’s highly anticipated new dining destination. Brought to life by an award-winning design and culinary team, Saddles is a relaxed Australian homestead located in Mount White on 28 acres of bushland.
From here the Ferrari Portofino continued driving through the unique Australian landscape along the twists and turns of the Old Pacific Highway, stopping to take in some incredible seaside vistas before arriving at Pretty Beach House.
One of a small and select group of Luxury Lodges of Australia, Pretty Beach House is exclusive by virtue of its remoteness, special location and luxurious boutique accommodation. Nestled in the Bouddi National Park overlooking Australia’s breathtaking coastline, this beautifully designed resort celebrates the best in luxury lifestyle and provided the perfect destination for the first Australian drives of the new Ferrari Portofino.
Surrounded by Australian-native eucalypt trees and with views out to the boats on the sparkling waters of Pretty Beach. The Ferrari Portofino was at home in it’s surroundings down under.
Later the Ferrari’s drove to the Marie Byles lookout to enjoy the view out over Australia’s stunning coastline before returning to Sydney.
