Long White Cloud is set within one of Melbourne’s most iconic riverside venues –
Common Man Lawn by South Wharf Events. South Wharf’s concrete jungle offers the perfect location, with the Yarra on one side and sweeping views of the city on the other, easily accessible via public transport and within walking distance to ample parking.

All venue details are available on the Long White Cloud Facebook page, ticketing page and website.

Dress Code: Neat causal – jandal’s welcome!


Because for a small nation we are proud people, and no matter where we live we have a deep connection to the land. Our universal language is sport, food and music. It speaks to everyone. It unites and empowers, and creates a sense of belonging. So no matter what we do, who we are or where we live, there is something that binds us all. And that is being Kiwi.
