who we are

OUR MISSION:

To create fabulous events that celebrate diversity and inclusion.

Having grown from its infancy in Darwin Northern Territory in 2014, PARTY PASSPORT now has a portfolio of parties and events held around Australia and Internationally.

At the core of our business, we create, run and produce events that celebrate diversity and inclusion, with a particular focus on the LGBTQIA and Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Our aim is to create events that are safe, fun and fabulous for all people and orchestrate spaces where everyone is free to be themselves.

Hosts Miss Ellaneous & Marzi Panne take party events from drab to FABULOUS! Great DJ’s and premium entertainers abound, making the point of difference for all of our events. The team at PARTY PASSPORT are just getting started and cannot wait to show you what they have in store for 2019 and beyond!

Party Passport acknowledges the Traditional Custodians on whose lands we work and live and, pay respects to their elders & leaders past, present and emerging. We believe the resplendent tradition of celebration in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture can enrich the lives of all Australians.
