Fun, friends, fireworks… New Year’s Eve is always an awesome night, and the perfect opportunity to let out your inner party animal. If you’re looking for the perfect spot to ring in the new year in Brisbane, why not head out to one of our top picks?
South Bank Parklands
The Parklands are one of Brisbane’s most beautiful outdoor sights, and even more so when awesome firework are filling the skies above. They’re the best vantage point for the South Bank display, and they will also be hosting movie screenings and tons of local food trucks. It does tend to fill up fast, however, so try to get there early. It’ll just mean more time to party, right?
Mt Coot-tha Lookout
As the highest peak in Brisbane, it’s safe to say that Mt Coot-tha is a pretty decent spot to catch the fireworks. You get panoramic views all the way out to Moreton Bay, which means you won’t miss a single rocket as they light up the night. This is a great choice for families, or for anyone who wants to escape the intense partying engulfing most of the city.
Highgate Hill Park
Highgate Hill Park is another awesome venue for a quieter kind of evening. The city vistas are glorious, and it’s especially lovely on a warm summer night. Bring along a picnic blanket, find yourself a spot on the grass, and settle in for the most romantic New Year’s Eve you’ve ever had. You’ll definitely impress that special someone – trust us!
Wilsons Lookout is an unassuming little slice of green over in New Farm, but the views beyond the river are absolutely spectacular. You can see both the skyline and Kangaroo Point, and the place itself is secluded enough that you won’t have to worry about too many others spoiling the mood (unless they all read this article… then you’re in trouble).
Soleil Pool Bar NYE Party
If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Brisbane’s nice and all, but I wish I could spend New Year’s in Barcelona”, then you’re in luck! Soleil Pool Bar is offering the full experience, with a drinks package, pop-up bars and delectable Spanish food, with all sorts of live music and entertainment to keep you occupied. ¡Feliz año nuevo!
