It’s that time of the year again! New Years Eve is just around the corner and not only is it the end of the year – it’s the end of the decade.

If you’ve been a little bit lax in organising your evening affairs – don’t fret! From free fireworks, to lavish evenings – we’ve got you covered - all at a good price we promise. 

Free fireworks!

If you’re not keen to spend too much cash – but you’d still like a good evening out – public fireworks displays are the way to go.

St Kilda pier – grab some fish and chips and spend the evening on the beach before heading to the pier to watch the show.

Williamstown Beach – another prime beach option with fantastic views of the city (and equally fantastic chip shops). 

Fed Square – yes it’ll be crowded! But at least you’re nice and central.

Edinburgh Gardens – It’s alcohol free so great for kids, there will be movies and events from 2pm.   

Ruckers Hill, Northcote – a prime northside spot we bet you’ve never thought of, grab meal beforehand and avoid the city crowds!

Footscray Community Arts Centre – perfect city views and almost definitely less crowded than being in the thick of it - plus loads of options for a cheap bowl of pho beforehand!

Terminus Hotel – Abbotsford - $50 – 2DJs, dance floors, plus free flowing beer and wine for two hours!
