UPDATE: ESSENTIAL BIG KAHUNA TRAVEL INFO DUE TO MELBOURNE MARATHON
Unfortunately we’ve just found out that the Melbourne Marathon is on the same day as the Big Kahuna, which will make getting into the Port Melbourne area complicated but not impossible.
Below are some directions that will make sure you get to the Big Kahuna with a minimum of hassle.
Please pass this information along to all your mates via your social channels and we look forward to seeing you down there!
