What do you have planned for the New Year’s celebrations? Nothing? Well, here’s a few awesome ideas!

How about…

The Entrance Memorial Park celebration

Fun for all the family at The Entrance. Local acts will kick off the entertainment on Sails Stage at 4:30pm, before it’ll all moves into the Memorial Park at 6pm. As always, there will amusement rides and pop-up stalls operating along the boardwalk.

It’s promised to end with a bang, finishing the night at 9pm with fireworks over The Entrance Channel.

Time: 4:30-9pm

Where: Sails Stage and Memorial Park

Entry cost: Free!

Gosford waterfront

We all know it goes off at the waterfront on NYE! And this year will be no exception.  

Gourmet stalls, the annual Pavier’s Waterfront Carnival, AquaSplash (open until 8pm), live music and of course FIREWORKS!!!

Time: 6pm-9:30pm (fireworks start at 9:15pm)

Where: Gosford Waterfront and surrounds

Entry cost: varying costs for activities. For AquaSplash costs, check here.

Podium presented by Pocket Bar Terrigal

An over-18s event that’s not to be missed if you’re in the mood to start your New Years Eve dancing to Local DJs at the Entertainment Grounds, Gosford! Start your party here then make your way to Gosford Waterfront, Mariners Game or somewhere else to welcome in the New Year. Check the Facebook event here to see the line-up and complete event details.

NYE Mariners Game

Mariners v Melbourne City FC, kicking off from 6pm at Central Coast Stadium. It’s football’s biggest night on the Coast and we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!!

Time: Gates open at 6pm

Where: Central Coast Stadium

Lost Paradise

A three day music, arts, yoga, food and full ‘glamping’ experience.
