Bringing together the best local and touring entertainment, our floating events are hosted aboard M.V. Catalina, Queensland’s most unique and luxurious floating event space. Our expert skippers choose the best cruising and mooring locations subject to prevailing weather conditions ensuring an unforgettable experience for our guests every cruise. Catalina provides two fully licensed bars over two decks with each serving Catalina's trademark cocktails, quality wine and craft beer. Relax undercover downstairs in our Riverview Bar and Lounge, or find a spot under the umbrellas in our Terrace Bar and take in unparralleled views of Noosa's pristine river.

We've invited some of our closest DJ friends to play for you in an intimate 3-hr event after dark, for one night only. Ask anyone who came last year, this is one party not to be missed.
