Aussie basketball star Liz Cambage certainly knows how to party.

After winning the WNBL title with the Southside Flyers in December, Cambage is enjoying some well-deserved downtime.

Cambage was joined by a star-studded cast of gal pals who let their hair down during an island getaway in the Caribbean recently.

WWE greats Kelly Kelly and Danielle Moinet, as well as MMA star Valerie Loureda, were all in attendance as Cambage and the girls danced and drank champagne on private boats and in their resorts.

Cambage and Kelly Kelly - real name Barbara Blank - have been sharing the happy snaps on social media in recent days.

Loureda also posted a photo of herself and younger sister Natalie soaking up some sun.

“Catch us on a yacht or in the cage idk [I don’t know],” she wrote.

Kim Kardashian’s personal trainer Melissa Alcantara was also in attendance, as was Australian wrestler Tenille Dashwood.

Cambage wins WNBL title with Flyers

Cambage certainly has reason to celebrate after winning the Women's National Basketball League with the Melbourne-based Southside Flyers last year.

Cambage was in early foul trouble but had 14 points and five rebounds in the championship game as the Flyer won 99-82 over the Townsville Fire.

She was forced from the court with two personal fouls after only three minutes and didn’t return until the start of the third quarter.

In joining the Flyers, Cambage was reunited with her Australian Opals teammate Jenna O'Hea.

The pair first won the WNBL title with the Bulleen Boomers in 2011.

“I sent Jenna a text message back in March,” said Cambage, who was in tears at the end of the final.

“I saw a photo of us celebrating the Boomers grand final 10 years ago and I sent it to her and I was like, ‘Jenna, I want this again’.

“I hadn't even thought about signing yet, I just wanted that moment again with Jenna.”

Cambage missed the WNBA season for the Las Vegas Aces after being medically excused by the league's independent panel of doctors who deemed her to be at high risk for getting severe illness if she contracted COVID-19.

She signed with the Flyers for her first season in the Australian league since 2018.

Cambage averaged 15.9 points and 8.2 rebounds last season for the Aces, her first with the team.

She has played four years in the WNBA after getting drafted second in 2011 by the Tulsa Shock.

She was traded from Dallas to Las Vegas before last season and re-signed with the Aces in April, and was medically excused from the league in July.

Cambage averaged 23.5 points and 8.7 rebounds per game in the WNBL this season.

She was also first in blocks and second in field goal percentage.
