Stars & Bars Festival High Seas Tickets

Experience the next exciting instalment of the revolutionary Stars & Bars Festival as you take to the High Seas for an evening Cocktail Cruise


Henry Wagons & The Only Children

Plus Special Guest

Nathan Seeckts

for an epic voyage of musical discovery.

Cruise the tranquil waters of Corio Bay and beyond for a 3hr journey aboard a luxury 20 metre catamaran, The World Famous Geelong Party Boat The Hygeia, departing the Geelong Waterfront at 6pm Saturday 18th June 2022.

With a fully-licenced cocktail bar & professional bar tenders guests can enjoy drinks on the downstairs inside level or take in the views of Geelong’s evolving Waterfront & City Skyline from upstairs on the sky deck lounge.

The Hygeia’s on-board chef will prepare an exquisite selection of cocktail canapes to be served throughout the evening’s proceedings. 

Boarding commences from 5:30pm from Fishermen’s Pier at the end of Yarra Street on the Geelong Waterfront. 

The Cruise departs at 6:00pm, arriving back at Fishermen’s Pier to disembark from 9:00pm.

Henry Wagons needs almost no introduction, he's a true renaissance man, with a unique swagger reminiscent of a day when front men gave back bucket loads of charm and were shrouded in enigmatic mystery.  Unanimously lauded as one of one of Australia’s great entertainers, a Henry Wagons show is a true sight to behold. With his band The Only Children in Tow this will be one up-close, intimate performance not to be missed.

With Special Guest Nathan Seeckts also aboard

Good Times in G (ood) Town On the Good Ship Hygeia are Guaranteed.

 Seeckts, a Geelong Local, is a powerful singer songwriter who effortlessly fuses the sounds of Americana, folk, country and blues delivered with a commanding voice that is equal parts gravel and passion, will open proceedings joined by his full band.

Movers & Shakers will also be able to hit the boards on the dancefloor with an eclectic interstitial soundtrack supplied by Blueprint Sounds.

All your favourite Moon Dog Brewery beverages will be available for purchase at bar prices from the fully stocked bar, with guests receiving a complimentary Moon Dog Fizzer Seltzer on arrival.

A special collaboration with local Geelong Spirit legends Anther Distillery has inspired a lovingly handcrafted Stars & Bars Cocktail to round out the maritime mixology theme, with a distinctly local flavour featuring Anther Geelong Dry Gin & will also be available for purchase at the bar.

There’s also access to an

Official Stars & Bars Festival High Seas Afterparty

at a secret Geelong CBD venue for partygoers keen to kick on.
