Get WILD !

It’s back and its launched!! Wildlife Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that has showcased the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 50 years. Be among the first to experience 100 of the world’s most extraordinary nature photographs, on loan from London’s Natural History Museum.

Come and view the astonishing imagery capturing fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world.

Brothers, James and Peter Isaac (creating music as DJ duo Donald’s House) will be spinning dance floor fillers all night for all the party animals in the room.

Taking influence from Paradise Garage styled disco, early 90s house, italo and anything with a DMX drum kit, their take on dance dance music is as refreshing as it is familiar. You’ll often hear M1 solos, chords and stabs, juxtaposed against Phil Collins styled stadium drums, and groovy basslines that just beg your body to move.

They dropped their EP ‘Dan’s Dancing EP’ late last year and have been on the rise ever since. A family affair with their own productions and body music for your Friday night, these guys will have the party going wild!

WITH A COCKTAIL PARTY COMES A THEME…Think zebra patterns, floral inspirations, totem animals, flamingo printed shirts, Meerkat bow ties… just go wild and get creative; construct your best wild inspired outfit. This one is a classy event though, so we’d recommend against rocking up in those leopard print budgie smugglers (as funny as it would be).

While there will be nibbles to see you through the event, partnering with Denny’s Kitchen means you’ll have the ability to order something more substantial if you’re feeling it.

Be amongst the first to experience 100 of the world’s most extraordinary photographs, while you sip on delectable cocktails and dance to electro beats in your classiest wildlife outfits this month.

After-all, you’ve really got nothing to lose and the world to see.

It all goes down tomorrow night on Friday March 29 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at the National Wool Museum (26 Moorabool Street, Geelong).

Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite.


The Wild Cocktail Party is a collaboration between the National Wool Museum, Dennys Kitchen, The 18th Amendment Bar and Forte Magazine.
