This would be such a cool way to have a party. Many boats hang around Half Moon Bay as there is a jetty close by.

Half Moon Bay is a 40 minute drive south from the Melbourne CBD. It is easy to get, just off the Napean Highway in Black Rock. This is the second ‘beach’ I have been to Melbourne, I rate it somewhere lower than Fukuoka Beach in Japan and higher than the mangrove estuaries around Coffs Harbour in New South Wales.
