Entertainment

Upper Deck: Will be setup with Melbourne's best DJ's and our very own Benny B easing the music at the start then turning up the music as we listen to all the latest tracks with some old school tunes thrown in for some fun. We've got one of Melbourne's best lighting techs on board as well like last time, this guy is incredible!

Lower Deck: will be setup as an area to easily socialise with Face painting setup down there as well  (get the colours of your country painted wherever you want). We've paid to get the best in the business, you'll be impressed at what she'll do! 

There will be a photographer on the boat taking photos ALL through the night, there will be blow up kangaroos and other Aussie themed props you can have your photo taken with. 

Food & Beverages

Nothing beats a true blue aussie barbie, we will have plenty of aussie snags to munch on as well as some other BBQ goodness so you wont go hungry! Drinks will be at your own cost and at standard bar prices with two bars operating. 

After Party package

$9 will get you transport + entry to the after party at General Store & Co. This fun place has 3 rooms with all different types of music and kicks on until 3am. 


WHICH COUNTRY IS THE PARTY COUNTRY?................ we're about to find out!

    A huge thank you to everyone who made this Boat Party such a great success, from the crew on the boat, Ben Bresley and his entertainment crew, the film crew from C31 shooting a documentary on Newbies International, our talented photographer, Monica Jane for the fantastic catering, PinkCow our Sponsors, the crew at General Store & Co. (our after party venue) and of course all of those who came on board and partied!!! We certainly drank some alcohol and partied, there was hardly a drop left, even the naughty kangaroos got in on the action! It was so fantastic to everyone from all over the world coming together as one and enjoying each others company, learning about their culture and sharing stores, as well as experiencing hopefully a highlight of their time here in Melbourne. If you missed out there's plenty more where that came from ;)

    So I just realized that having drinks on a boat isn't the smartest thing to do when recovering from a stomach flu, so I'm selling my ticket. Message me and I can send over the PDF of my ticket. We can work out payment later. I got the early bird+afterparty ticket, which was $42 after fees.

    Hi guys, we need a photo id right to enter the boat party (ps: I'm not going to the after party)? I just realized that I lost my current passport in my messy room. I still have my old one and a color printed scan of it with me, and no other photo if with date of birth like driving liscence. But if I can't find it by today, and processing a lost passport is impossible to be done in just several hours, could I still enter the venue? Or else, would anyone want to grab my boat ticket (ps: but I don't have the after party one).

  • Karen

    Hey Ben, what's the best way to get down the the place the boat leaves from? Thinking public transport.

    September 10

    • Ben W.

      There ya go, public transport expert to the rescue lol thanks Alicia, I am clearly not good with public transport, I tend to walk too much but not so much a bad thing I guess!

    Hi folks, a few people are asking how you buy tickets, there is a link on the event page but here it is again:
    https://www.stickytickets.com.au/19240

    There are less than 30 tickets left so I'd suggest getting them very soon!

  • Neo s.

    Is it possible if someone could meet me at southern cross station on the night because Im a bit worried about getting lost. If someone could meet me at southern cross at about 5:45 that would be really helpful at least then I can go to the address without getting lost and my name in case anyone doesn't know me is johnpaul.

    • Ben W.

      There will be loads of others also new to the group and this being their first event, the great thing is you can approach anyone and not feel like you won't be greeted and welcomed. We've got a good thing going on here and we've setup the start of the boat party so that people can mingle and enjoy some food.

      September 10

  • Becca H.

    Hello! I bought an early bird ticket for this event but I can no longer attend. Does anyone want to buy it from me? I got the $30.00 plus the $9.00 after party ticket. The total was $41.50. If you're interested just message me and I will give you my bank account so you can transfer funds. Thanks!
