New Year’s Eve is coming up, and Melbourne’s ready to party. 2016 has been a long year, and it deserves to be sent off in style. Here are our top picks for the best places to be as the countdown to 2017 begins.
You may wish to spend New Year’s Eve with a certain special someone, and a suitably romantic spot will make that midnight smooch all the more special. We’d suggest the gorgeous Treasury Gardens, where you can catch the perfect view of the fireworks along Melbourne’s skyline. Bring a picnic rug and settle in for the night!
Pumping music, tons of food and an awesome festival atmosphere all combine to make Federation Square a top place to be this New Year’s Eve. The tunes range from salsa to hip hop to Caribbean beats, and the surrounding buildings help the sounds of the firework echo around like thunder. It gets very busy, however, so it’s definitely one for those seeking a livelier time.
Anther prime party location, Flagstaff Gardens is transforming itself into a sprawling oasis of New Year’s goodness. There will be DJs, dancing, special effects and a multimedia countdown to the fateful hour, not to mention various snacks and bevvies available for consumption. You can see the fireworks super clearly, too!
Harbour Kitchen NYE Party
If you’re looking to channel Iggy Azalea and get a bit fancy this New Year’s Eve, The Harbour Kitchen’s masquerade party might be just the ticket. It’s five hours of revelry spread across two bars, complete with DJs, food and drinks packages, and fabulous views of the Docklands & Southbank fireworks displays. Sounds like everything you could want in an evening! Find out more

You’ll find dragons, White Walkers and even the Iron Throne at this one-of-a-kind event, so dress up as your favourite character and prepare for a memorable evening. Let’s just hope it doesn’t go the way of the Red Wedding, shall we? Find out more
