New Years Eve Canberra

New Years Eve Canberra fireworksThis New Years Eve Canberra skies will light up with a sensational city funded fireworks display. Canberra is not normally a target destination for the 20 year old traveler on New Year’s Eve.  We’ve spoken to many punters from Canberra and surrounds over the years and generally the local venues sell out with the local population.

Canberra’s population is skewed by the public service employment, and with parliament not sitting over the Christmas New Year holiday period, there are a lot of people not actually in town!  Over the years some NYE promoters have tried to get larger NYE events up and running in Canberra with mixed results. This has a bit to do with who is about! It really is a gorgeous city and easy to get around by car or bus.

A centre piece of NYE in Canberra is the fabulous fireworks launched over Lake Burley Griffin.  There is plenty of lawn and park space for vantage points and there are also a number of venues close by that have advantage for viewing the fireworks.  Are you headed to Canberra for the 31st December celebrations? Or maybe you find yourself there. Then hopefully we can help to make it the most fun NYE that it can be. We’ve sorted some New Years Eve Canberra ideas that are worth considering.
