What we're about

“Newbies International was started in 2013 by myself Ben Webster from this idea I had to connect internationals and interstate Aussies aged 18 to 35 new to Melbourne through fun, affordable, social meetups, parties, events and tours”

“I arrived in Melbourne as an Aussie from Wollongong near Sydney and there wasn’t even a bar crawl I could go on to meet people and I wanted to explore Victoria, the tours were so expensive and there were none for us of the same age so I set about creating them and building a community of like minded people”

“Monica Jane joined the team and with the help of a few others we soon became known for throwing the biggest boat parties in Melbourne to and we’ve now been running some of the biggest monthly parties in the city”

“Newbies International grew to one of the fastest growing groups in the meetup community, at one stage ranked #2 from 180 000 groups world wide! Since then Newbies International has grown it’s community through Facebook groups and the Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/newbiesinternational ) to expand even further! Melbourne Bar Crawl ( http://www.facebook.com/melbbarcrawl ) and Hands Up Entertainment ( http://www.facebook.com/handsupentaustralia ) was setup with even locals wanting to join in on the fun to and I don’t blame them”!

“I welcome you to join us, we have some really cool events and parties to connect you with others here in Melbourne, plus our tours are absolutely awesome for that to”
