On New Year’s Eve Darwin is alive as Australia’s northern most capital city. You are in the Top End! And in the Top End, they love a party and fireworks. Most of the NYE fireworks activities are centered near the Wharf area. Darwin is Australia’s smallest city by population but it is a pocket rocket in terms NYE party enthusiasm. If you are in Darwin for NYE or intend to be there you can guarantee a good time!
In terms of ideas of places to go for your 31st December experience, there are plenty of options for restaurants and pub type events, and the cost per person is not in the ball park of the larger more commercial capital cities. A great area to experience all that New Year’s Eve Darwin has to offer is down by the Darwin Wharf and Harbour. If it is particularly warm night you might get the ocean breeze. And let’s face it, fireworks look better over water! The fireworks will go off for an early family session down at the Wharf area and then it is also planned for more fireworks at the stroke of Midnight.
