A "boob cruise" operator was responsible for organising a private school girls' formal after-party at an outlaw bikie club.
A group of senior girls from elite private school, St Hilda's, booked the after-party with the Gold Coast Function Centre, sources told Fairfax Media on Wednesday.
The business was registered in 2009 to Anthony Kisrwani, who also operates Boob Cruises on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, and founded Australian Outback Adult Tours.
"You may have found that when you mention the words 'after party' to a venue, they immediately say 'NO!' Well, we don't," the Gold Coast Function Centre website reads.
"We'll happily provide you with a safe and legal environment for your whole year to celebrate in style."
The St Hilda's students, including the daughters of Gold Coast mayor Tom Tate and Federal MP Karen Andrews, were bussed to a mystery location after attending their formal at the Gold Coast Convention Centre on Saturday night.
Parents claimed the girls, aged 17 and 18, were naive to the fact the after-party venue in an industrial estate, about 15 kilometres from the heart of Surfers Paradise, was the Nomads Motorcycle Club stronghold.
On its website, the Gold Coast Function Centre boasts its security guards "are not the kind you will find parading around a shopping mall".
"We have our own first class and professional security team that will provide everyone attending with a safe party environment," the website states.
"The last thing you want is for your after party to be called off for a few selfish people who are causing trouble."
Neither Mr Kisrwani, nor his employees at Boob Cruises in Sydney and Melbourne, have returned calls from Fairfax Media yesterday and today.
Gold Coast Detective Superintendent David Hutchinson said the stunt was another public relations exercise by the Nomads, and encouraged parents to make themselves aware of their children's party arrangements.
"This is just another way outlaw motorcycle gangs attempt to legitimise themselves in the eyes of the public," he said.
"The fact remains that outlaw motorcycle gangs are involved in organised crime and this should not be forgotten."
The location of Saturday night's party was kept a secret in order to deter potential gate-crashers, students said.
Police Commissioner Ian Stewart said on Tuesday it was disappointing that an event for school students was staged at a bikie clubhouse.
"It's very disappointing that someone would organise such a venue for people from any high school of young people who are at that impressionable age," Mr Stewart said, adding that there was "nothing glamorous" about outlaw bikie gangs.
"I don't think it was the right thing to do.
"I certainly think that in future people need to be more careful about the arrangements they make with third party organisers."
Police said Mr Kisrwani had not acted illegally in hiring the bikie clubhouse for the student party.
In 2007, students from Emmanuel College held a formal after-party at the Rebels clubhouse, and in 2006, the Bandidos Mermaid Beach clubhouse was the venue for a similar event for students from The Southport School.
