December is a busy time of year, and if you’ve been too caught up with Christmas to even think about your New Year’s Eve plans, don’t worry. We’ve done the hard work for you, and picked the first best spots around Adelaide to ring in the new year. Have fun!
New Year’s Eve at Elder Park is a bona fide festival, featuring everything from music and amazing fireworks to food and market stalls. It’s always a lively, bustling event with no shortage of things to see, do and taste, and it’s tons of fun to simply wander about and soak up the party atmosphere. Trust us – this is one NYE you’ll never forget.
Do you like to be right in the thick of the action? Then it’s off to Victoria Square with you, you party animal! The stunningly refurbished city centre fills up fast on New Year’s Eve, but it’s the only place to be if you want to get right underneath the spectacular fireworks and see them up close.
Windy Point Lookout
It’s one of the most romantic places in all of Adelaide, so we could hardly leave Windy Point Lookout off the list. This elevated vantage point gives you an awesome view of the city and its various firework displays, and it’s just perfect for a quieter kind of evening spent with someone special. Park up and settle in!
Brighton Beach likes to go full-on family fun-fest for New Year’s Eve, so grab the kids and head on down. Entertainment comes courtesy of Timomatic, The Cast, DJ Jacki J and Ripley, and there’s plenty of cool activities to keep the young’uns busy until the big fireworks extravaganza at 9:30pm.
