COMPETITION TIME! Melbourne’s New Year’s Party Village: World Carnivale NYE!Dec 1, 2015

Experience a party like no other with five different parties each with their own theme, entertainment, and food. This New Year’s Eve, experience World Carnivale!



This New Year’s Eve, South Wharf will be transformed into a village full of sights, sounds, and tastes. Travel between the different zones with distinct themes and experience all that is on offer at World Carnivale!

Venice on the Yarra

Inspired by the traditional Carnival of Venice, this Italian inspired zone will feature traditional foods, Venetian decorations, and mysterious masked hosts and also offers an option to add spirits to the 5 hour beverage package. Guests will be entertained by a live cover band.


Rio Grade

The ‘river grill’ is a call out to the loud, colourful Carnivale in Rio de Janeiro. Food has more of a meat focus with Churrasco grills and other Brazilian inspired food, lively Brazilian music and feather bedecked showgirls!


Lights, Love and Lanterns

The Melbourne Lawn
