Australia even brought the flavour of Brazil's samba to cricket as dancers performed during the event.
The 2015 World Cup is expected to bring in a lot of tourists to the two nations and both Australia and New Zealand are preparing to have a lot on offer for fans.
Former cricketers were also present at the event held in Wellington.
