New Year’s Eve – Melbourne Events

By Andrew Bellino

New Year’s Eve celebrations for Melbourne are normally spread out at various locations around the city.  Some focus for party places are along the Yarra River, at the Docklands, Federation Square, and Southbank.  There are also parties and events in suburbs close to the city as South Yarra, Fitzroy, St Kilda, Port Melbourne and Richmond.

There are free events provided by the city, including live music and fireworks.  The fireworks are a major attraction and now attract crowds of 600,000 – 750,000. In Australia it is the second largest New Year’s Eve celebration. Some aspects you might like to take into consideration when selecting your 2015 NYE event are: can you see the fireworks with the location if that is what you want at midnight; price of tickets; and accessibility.

Melbourne is the events city and there is no bigger event than New Year’s Eve and Melbourne does it so well.
