A wild Australia Day party on the water featuring yachts, beer bongs, plenty of booze and scantily clad women hosted by two social media influencers forced police to intervene prior to the event even starting.
Businessman ‘Candyman 2.0’ Troy Williams joined forces with OnlyFans millionaire Jackson O’Doherty to host an Australian Day bash at The Spit on the Gold Coast and issued an open invitation for everyone to attend on what promised to be ‘a fun day’.
Revellers came out in force as Williams shared an insight of the seven hour celebrations to his 204,000 Instagram fans of partygoers drinking and dancing on boats to music played by DJs.
Many partygoers ended up in the water to cool off with drinks in hand while others challenged each other to beer bong contests and roamed the water on jet skis.

Police kept crowd numbers under control and prevented vehicle access by barricading roads and setting up checkpoints.
Officers enlisted the help Gold Coast Waterways Authority prior to the day to ensure public safety in the popular precinct on Australia Day after they became aware of the event advertised online.
‘Due to the expected number of people, the gate at Moondarewa Spit will be closed on Australia Day, 26 January 2022, to ensure pedestrians can safely enjoy Moondarewa Spit on Australia Day,’ the authority posted on Tuesday.
‘We wish everyone an enjoyable day and remind all park and waterways users to follow the park instructions and stay safe.
‘We are working closely with the Queensland Police Service to ensure the safety of the community on this busy day.’

Police warned they would keep a close eye on festivities to ensure celebrations didn’t get of hand.
‘What we’ve done is just close off vehicle access out to the point itself,’ Acting Chief Superintendent Rhys Wildman told the Gold Coast Bulletin.
‘We’re trying to reduce risk of having young kids, families, large groups of people in the area and mixing it with vehicle traffic.’
It’s understood police were generally happy with overall crowd behavior.
‘All reports from the Gold Coast is that there were no events of note,’ a spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia.

The police presence prompted Williams to take a time out from the celebrations and post a video urging fans to stay safe and drink responsibly.
‘Just remember to be please safe on this day and don’t be drunk operating a vessel, we don’t want any accidents,’ he pleaded.
‘We just want people to come out to have a good time, listen to music and hang out.
‘So everyone, please be safe and don’t do the wrong thing. Don’t f*** it up for everyone.’
The party hosts were hoping for a big turn out to the celebrations.
‘Let’s get everyone out on the water! Whether you have a boat, ski , canoe , tinny etc we don’t care just get out and meet us on the water,’ Candy posted on Facebook prior to the event.
‘Let’s get the Gold Coast together for a fun day out.’

The event comes three years after Candy celebrated Australia Day with scantily clad women at a winery in Victoria’s Yarra Valley.
It’s also not the first time in recent weeks YouTube prankster turned adult content creator O’Doherty has been in the headlines for hosting wild celebrations.
The internet star and OnlyFans millionaire hosted a New Year’s Eve extravaganza dubbed Australia’s ‘wildest’ New Year’s Eve party as celebrities and scantily-clad models descended on his luxurious mansion.
O’Doherty, 27, hosted the lavish celebration at his octagon-shaped home on the Gold Coast which he named ‘Playboy Mansion 2.0’ – hoping it will rival Hugh Hefner’s sex-fuelled Los Angeles estate.
His 300 guests at the X-rated white-themed shindig were ‘greeted by dwarfs’, before being entertained by acrobats and offered ‘unlimited alcohol’.
