New Years Eve Melbourne is an event in itself in one of the best event cities in the world. So you know you are going to find NYE fun! As well as the spectacular city and docklands fireworks there are lots of restaurants, cruises and parties and events, both large and small to cater for all tastes. Being Summer time in Melbourne for New Years Eve means normally a very pleasant climate for being indoors and outdoors for the upcoming 31st December celebrations.
You will be able to see out the old year and welcome in the new year in style or as relaxed as you want to be. The major areas of the city around the Yarra and the Docklands are normally very busy, so it is important to book early and generally advisable to at least have a venue or restaurant as a base that you can go in and out of to see the fireworks. So bookings are certainly advisable. It also gives you a great meeting point fro you and your friends.
Normally events at Melbourne venues range in prices from Free to $250 per person on New Years Eve. Over the years we’ve seen the average is around the $125 per person. So there is something for everyone! Even families with kids or large numbers including elderly can be catered for easily in Melbourne. There are some fabulous restaurants that cater for celebrating New Years Eve for families! Check out the details below.
And for the NYE Party animals who want to have a big new years eve, then there will be a myriad of events to appeal to everyone. There will be all sorts of events including those with DJ’s, bands or maybe even Karaoke, and in terms of themes there will be costume, glitter, masquerade, black tie, casual, beach parties all over Melbourne and even on the water with cruises. Some will be all inclusive in terms of price. So that means drinks may be included and maybe even some food. And for other NYE packages you may have to pay for drinks. Make sure you checkout all the details below as there are always some great value NYE offerings and its important to get in early most of the time!
Next, if you are planning a big NYE night. Then plan to stay in the city and book your accommodation in advance. Over the years we’ve noticed great variation in prices for accommodation. So don’t be afraid to ask for any deals or query any specials. Inclusions of breakfast and a late checkout and/or extra day are probably a good idea!

What is there to do after NYE in Melbourne?
Once the smoke of the New Years Eve Melbourne midnight fireworks has gone the general public areas will start to clear out. The night of the old year also marries into the new day of the new year and that is New Years Day. Some people may be looking for ideas of how to spend their first day of the new year. Others may be looking for recovery sessions. We hope we can help with ideas for New Years Day Melbourne.
