“It’s like the Hong Kong Sevens meets the Monaco Grand Prix”

AQUA RUGBY is a 3-day floating rugby festival, with full-contact matches played atop of a 30 x 30 metre pontoon where players have to dive off the floating pitch into the water to score a try, and can be crash-tackled off the side pontoon.

A diverse mix of professional & amateur teams from all around Australia are invited to play for the Aqua Rugby trophy.

The floating festival is packed with current & former rugby stars from the Men’s & Women’s formats, with a range of rugby league marquee imports to show their skills also.

“A floating pitch, that’s filled with hits”

Aqua Rugby is free to attend on the shoreline with fun activities for the kids, food trucks & more whilst you watch the action on the pontoon.

We also have a range of ticketed events surrounding the pitch from enjoying an all-inclusive VIP experience aboard a yacht, to mingling with the players in the Players Pavilion. See our Tickets & Events page for more details!
