Join us for our first Spring Friday night social drinks, this week on Melbourne's newest rooftop bar Top Yard! They have amazing cocktails, live entertainment and they also some really epic burgers! It's the perfect place to meet new people, we'll have a reserved area with seating and loads of standing room. PLUS Special offer for our members only, if you order a burger they'll give you a free beer or glass of champagne, just show this meetup event when order. You're welcome to arrive anytime from 7pm, I (Ben) will be your host for the night, just walk on up the stairs and you'll be able to find us easy enough we should have a big group. There will be a few regulars that will also be helping me host. Entry is free of course and dress code is smart casual to dressy. If there vibes are still good and people want to party in a club later there's loads of places we can head to for a dance ;) We will be limiting the numbers to 50 so get in early and rsvp. I look forward to seeing you there, we're going to have a great night!

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 ( ) to expand even further! Melbourne Bar Crawl ( ) and Hands Up Entertainment ( ) 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”
