Rowdy boaties interrupt PM's Aussie press conference

A pack of rowdy boaties interrupted a joint press conference with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in Sydney.

The leaders were speaking to media near Sydney Harbour, but their voices were drowned out by people started yelling from a passing boat.

It's unclear exactly what they were yelling, but Mr Turnbull joked they were supporters from New Zealand.

"You've got some fans out there Prime Minister, you should wave to them," he said.

Both leaders turned to wave at the boat, which further excited the people onboard.

"It might be a boat load of Kiwis perhaps," Mr Turnbull said. "They're having lots of fun."

Ms Ardern hoped they were "spending good money in Sydney."

The press conference then continued on without interference.

Ms Ardern is in Sydney for the annual trans-Tasman leaders' meeting.
