Celebration Zones are set up across the Central Business District with spectacular views of fireworks, food, and family-friendly entertainment. In addition, the city throws lots of parties and events to ring in the New Year. The banks of the Yarra River serve as an excellent outdoor space for cheerful crowds. Check out what’s on at restaurants, bars, and venues, and book in early!
Party-goers have plenty of options across the city. Plenty of joints with dance floors and funky music with food and drinks are located on the Yarra River waterfront—is it possible to find a better spot for the celebration?
