The faint blue glow of the moonlight seems to cling to you as you walk through the door. Your footsteps soften as the solid ground gives way to blades of springy grass. You hear the slow creaking of branches, until the sound is drowned out by the gentle tones of otherworldly music haunting your ears. A butterfly – or was it something else? – flutters past your face, leaving a trail of light in the air that disappears when you blink.
You are standing in a glowing, magical forest.
It’s the 2018 Enchanted Graduate Ball.
The 19th Annual Graduate Ball will be a night like no other.
The Annual Graduate Ball, now in its nineteenth year, is a time-honoured event that brings together all faculties of the graduate student community. This year, in the breathtaking waterside space of Peninsula at Melbourne’s Docklands, an enchanted forest will spring to life from floor to ceiling as if by magic.
You will be treated to an extravagant three-course meal, including main, dessert, and supper. Your drinks – including wine, beer, cider and soft drink – will be served all night as part of your ticket. Music, dancing and entertainment will flow throughout the night, and there will be a space for you and your group to have the magic captured by a professional photographer.
It will be the most dazzling and spectacular evening of the student year.
