If you grew up watching 90s show Friends and fantasised about chilling on that iconic orange couch, you’ll be able to get that chance very soon. No need to book that flight to NYC just yet to live the Central Perk experience, because it’s going to be coming Down Under.

 

 

The team at Stan, the only streaming service in Australia where you can binge on all ten seasons of the show, will be bringing the iconic couch down to Australia in celebration of the 25 year anniversary of the premiere (yes it’s been that long). The couch will be touring from August 29 to September 22. Hopefully, they’ll have more than three people carrying it.

 

 

If you snap a pic of you and your mates on the sofa, you can be in the running for some sweet prizes. Just tag @stanaustralia and #FriendsOnStan on your socials, and you could potentially win a signed photo from the entire main cast, or even a trip to New York City.
