How Kombi Keg Operates
Gertie is a unique and versatile mobile bar based in Townsville ready to serve your BYO alcoholic drinks.
We have 6 taps ready to serve your choice of beer, cider, wine, cocktails, soft drinks and more. Gertie the mobile bar also comes with three drink tubs at the rear of the van, filled with ice to keep your other bottled drinks cold.
We can provide RSA approved staff in Townsville and surrounds to pour the drinks for you, or your guests can help themselves! When your event is over, we pack up and drive out – it’s as simple as that!
If your event or local Townsville catering company supplies the drinks we can work directly with them to ensure your event goes off without a hitch!
Serve your next event in style, Kombi Style
Kombi Keg includes:
- An instant chill beer cooling system to keep your beers pouring cold all night long;
- 6 beer taps capable of connecting to sixth, quarter or half-barrel kegs of beer, cider and even wine;

It's the details that make the difference
Benchtop Bar Options
For laid back and relaxed events, we recommend choosing our classic surfboard bench. The classic option for most of the events we serve in Townsville, our surfboard bench completes the Kombi Keg look.
For classier or more formal events (such as a corporate function), you can also choose to have our Kombi Keg mobile bar fitted with a rustic wooden bench bar.
Create the ultimate event with our pop-up flat-screen TV. Watch the game in style, show movies, photos, logos, live TV and more. The rooftop TV is also great for hens and bucks nights to display some embarrassing photos of your guest of honour. Please note, power hook up is required to operate the TV.
We will make sure you're set up for success
Day of logistics
On the day of your event in Townsville, we will deliver Gertie the mobile bar to your venue, hook up and set the pressures of the kegs and test the flow. We then leave you to it and return to pick up the Kombi Keg after the event. Also, we can provide bartenders if you require – it couldn’t be easier!
A Little History
The story behind Gertie the mobile bar
Gertie is a lover of travel and parties. She was originally owned by Ellie, a girl who was in a girl band that travelled the East Coast of Australia. Gertie in her day was originally painted pink/purple with the number plate GER-7IE hence her nickname “Gertie”.
After a few years when the band members moved in different directions, she was sold to her second owner Bella who loved Kombis. Bella’s Grandfather grew up in Germany where he was a Kombi mechanic who worked in a German VW factory.
Bella had her heart set on owning a 75-78 model Kombi, as these were the years that her Grandfather worked in the VW factory. Gertie is a 78 model Kombi which Bella drove daily until Kombi Keg became the proud new owners.
Kombi Keg restored and kegged Gertie where she is now the life of the party in and around North Queensland with Dean & Tina ready to get your party started.

The Kombi Keg is hired out as a ‘dry hire’ with no alcohol included. As we don’t carry a liquor license we cannot directly purchase alcohol for you, but we can help you organise your kegs and drinks, and pick them up and return them to the supplier after the event. We have connections to local breweries and beer companies who can put together great packages for Kombi Keg customers. We also have 19l kegs that can be used for home brew, soft drink, and water. Just let us know when you book what you need and we will make it happen.
Need more info? Frequently Asked Questions
Many variable costs go into hiring a mobile bar from Kombi Keg Townsville. To get a quick estimation of costs, we recommend contacting our team directly with the date of your event and the expected guest count. From there, we’ll get in touch to discuss our mobile bar hire services in more detail – including the option to have bar staff to serve guests.
Our VW Kombi Keg can access most large properties and venues throughout our service area. The Kombi Keg mobile bar needs to be on private property, as it cannot be used on council property without a permit. Most hire venues are private property, however, every venue has different rules, so check with the venue for their rules and regulations around the serving of alcohol and the use of Kombi Keg Townsville. It is the responsibility of the person hiring Kombi Keg to check this before booking as all deposits are non-refundable.
Yes! Anything that comes in keg form can be served through the freezing cold taps of the Kombi Keg. Including ciders, wine, water, soft drinks etc. You can even run your homebrew.
Yes! Consider us your one-stop-shop for your event bar needs. Although we love using our local suppliers, we can get our hands on more commercial brands if so desired. We create drink packages to suit all tastes and budgets.
We can supply staff with an RSA and would be happy to stay and serve your guests as an optional extra. If your mobile bar hire is for private property, there is a great chance that it can be self-serve. However, you would need to check this out for your area and your event venue.
This is only a general rule of thumb. You know your guests better than anyone else, take into consideration the fact that you might have big drinkers or that maybe only a few enjoy a tipple.
