Hooked Up #15 Graphic

We are going flying in the country again!!! Ballan is our destination and we cant wait to spend Melbourne Cup Weekend enjoying Hooked Up#15. The address for this event is printed on the tickets. If you can’t pick up your ticket until the day please give us a call on 9419 7707 for the address details. This is a private residence.

This is a back to basics outdoor event so come prepared for a relaxing day outside.

You will need to bring ALL of your food and drinks with you for the day. Ballan is a small country town so very little will probably be open on a Sunday. We’ll be shopping in advance 🙂 Think “picnic”. Water, camp chairs, picnic rug, eski, sunscreen, etc. Please don’t leave any rubbish behind.

Ballan has a train station approximately 1hr and 10min from Southern Cross. Click here for the timetable.

Group Hook Pull

The Hooked UP Crew is really excited to announce a group hook pull. Imagine 20 people all connected via a central ring all pulling against each other. Imagine the intensity of the energy that will be created!!! This group pull will be managed in order to keep everyone safe and to create a great experience for all.

Numbers are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first in basis. The placement of the two hooks will be in the upper back to encourage an even pulling force. This skin is quite strong and can withstand a lot of tension without tearing.

If you desire a more customised “pull” experience individual pulls are also available at this event


A full range of suspensions are available and we anticipate an exciting day of breathtaking moments. The height of the trees is AWESOME!!! We have 3 different rig styles that support a full range of suspension positions so please feel free to let your creativity loose. If it’s possible we can do it for you.

In order to ensure we are fully prepared for your suspension please let us know when you reserve your place what your desired suspension position is.

Photo Policy

Now that almost everyone has a camera on their phone we need to share our position on photos at our Hooked Up suspension events.

We understand that there will be MANY spectacular photo opportunities – BUT we ask you to take those pictures home with you in your mind, not on your phone, unless you have the express PERMISSION from the person you are photographing – BEFORE you take the photos, and BEFORE they start their suspension experience.

Some of the folks suspending have not given their permission for any photos to be taken, except by the professional photographers who will be covering their suspension.

Worrying about what they may look like in photos they have no control over, or where they might “pop” up,  should be the last thing on their minds as they take flight.  We have been told about photos appearing on Facebook without permission and this is not something our suspendees should need to worry about. Respect them please.

Andrew Bott and his team will be on-site capturing these amazing moments with their usual breathtaking ability.

Andrew Bott is very aware of the need for discretion when photographing our community. He will not include your face in any photos without your consent. He has been photographing us beautifully for years.

We ask that everyone at Hooked Up help us to police this photo policy. Thank you.

Andrew Bott will be joining us again to capture our suspensions in the magical way only he can. Andrew has been photographing our events for years and is a paramount professional.


Bella and Paulus are your “go to” people if you need any assistance with anything during the event. If they can’t help you directly they will point you in the direction of someone who can. Basic first aid items are available at the medical tent.

The medical tent is restricted to crew and suspendees +1 support person. Please understand that this is for everyone’s safety.

Our suspension events are GLBTIQ friendly, KINK friendly, and we find that this makes for a relaxed environment for all. Please respect the fact that we are all unique which is what makes the world such an interesting place to be.

Management reserves the right to refuse entry.
