The major areas of the city around the Yarra and the Docklands are normally very busy, so it is important to book in on your NYE ideas early. We also suggest it 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 for you and your friends.

What is there to do after NYE in Melbourne?

Tell us about your Melbourne New Year's Eve event.Once the smoke of the New Year’s 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 Year’s 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 Year’s Day Melbourne.

Our Melbourne New Years Eve was fantastic. It was a beautiful evening with so many things to do in the City. We went to an all inclusive party at a hotel along the Yarra River and it was awesome.
