Rest and Refuel

Build your own salad from Chop’d, choose from the range of health pots from Crussh or enjoy a Fieldtray from Farmer J, while Island Poké, Natural Fitness Food, Little Farm and Rainbo at Wharf Kitchen are also just some of the eateries that have an array of healthy options. Wash it down with a juice from Joe & The Juice – its Energizer or Sports Juice blends are ideal post-workout.
