New Year's Eve Jungle Party
Ring in 2020 with by downing bottomless drinks in a rhino costume.
One of Melbourne's biggest beer gardens is turning into a jungle this year, for an OTT party to say goodbye to 2019 and hello to the roaring 20s — and by roaring, we mean like a tiger.
Get dressed up in your wildest looks (think ferns, sexy monkeys, rhinos a la Ace Ventura — just nothing culturally appropriative) and head north to Welcome to Thornbury's New Year's Eve Jungle Party.
There'll be a DJ Boombox Truck, the usual food truck lineup, wild live entertainment and complimentary party favours like jungle-themed costume pieces.
There are three tickets to choose from: The Jungle Boy ($99) gets you four hours of bottomless house beer, wine, sparkling and soft drink, and canapes; The Baloo ($135) secures you all that plus bottomless house spirits; or splurge for The King of the Jungle ($159) to add unlimited tiki cocktails to the mix.
If you want to get down early, Welcome to Thornbury will be open from midday, but the party (and drinks packages) won't really start until 8pm.
