Leonardo DiCaprio Parties With Pals Jonah Hill, Kevin Connolly and Lucas Haas on a Yacht in Australia (PHOTOS)

Ships ahoy!

Leonardo DiCaprio is ringing in 2013 Down Under — and he’s decided to kick off the New Year’s festivities early with his BFFs Kevin Connolly, Lucas Haas, and Jonah Hill.

The hot Hollywood actors were surrounded by a bevy of beauties aboard a private yacht Dec. 29 while on a cruise around Sydney Harbor for some fun in the Australian summer sun. And even though DiCaprio is back in the land of Oz to re-shoot scenes for Baz Luhrmann’s epic The Great Gatsby, it looks like he and his boys definitely don’t have work on their minds.

While Hill, Haas and Connolly got in some much-needed guy time, 38-year-old DiCaprio — donning his signature baseball cap and shades — mingled with the VIP crowd — and was every bit the perfect host. The superstar capped off the end of the year by letting loose — taking goofy photos with friends, smoking cigars, sipping fruity cocktails, laughing, and we can’t forget — flirting with a very pretty mystery blonde.

The Django Unchained star is a single man once again after breaking up with Victoria’s Secret supermodel Erin Heatherton, 23, in November after dating nearly a year.

DiCaprio has been spending a lot of time over the last year in Australia where he set the gossip world all abuzz after being linked to not one, but two, Aussie beauties — Alyce Crawford, 21, a former contestant on the Australian version of America’s Next Top Model, and model Kendal Schuler, 20.

The Oscar-nominated actor does have a thing for catwalk pros. He dated Gisele Bundchen from 2001 to 2005 and Bar Refaeli from 2006 to early 2011.
