Deco Party

Celebrate with Us. Eat, Drink, Be Melbourne!

Something a little different ... and budget friendly! We're taking over the Melbourne Public to celebrate the finale of the OZTek Advanced Diving Conference and the first OZDive Show.

Set in and around the lovingly restored heritage cargo sheds on the Yarra's edge, Melbourne Public (affectionately known to regulars as 'MP') can be found on the banks of Melbourne's newest drinking and dining secret - South Wharf.

With iconic interiors inspired by 1920s industrial flair of polished brass, exposed beams and heritage features, Melbourne Public celebrates the best of Melbourne's past and present, in true Australian style.

A warm sense of hospitality at its core, MP consistently delivers great food, premium drinks and a vibrant atmosphere.

The Decompression Party is a stand-alone event and includes the presentation of the OZTek Awards, and a night of unparalleled entertainment and mingling. Join us to celebrate the achievements and accomplishments of Australia's leading Divers and Dive Industry personnel at the MP with fun, food, fabulous company and music.
