Marvellous places to spend New Year’s in Melbourne


Looking to experience something different this New Year’s? No worries Melbourne, we’ve got you covered.

Campari House 

In the middle of the city in Hardware Lane, get your serious party on this New Year’s Eve at Campari House’s All That Glitters is Gold event. Think three floors of entertainment, DJ spinning commercial and house mash-ups all night, and a rooftop bar with canapés, drinks packages, cocktail upon arrival. Oh yeah, and incredible views. Totally glam it up and rock out in your best cocktail frocks and don a splash of gold for an epic party to ring in 2016 with style. Find out more

Treasury Gardens

You probably won’t be alone in finding this spot for fireworks viewing, but it is one of the best, and it’d be downright irresponsible of us to leave it off the list. Get in early with your picnic blanket, stock up on all your favourite snacks and just enjoy a wonderful day and evening tucked away from the hustle and bustle but still in the middle of all the action. You can’t do much better than this for fireworks, and while it may get busy, it’s still a great vibe, and a perfect spot to bring the family.

Fall from Grace Cellar Bar

Pfft, fireworks. Pops of sparkling fire in the sky. Seen it before. Forget the played-out NYE thing and get underground. So underground, in fact, that, in true Melbourne form, there’s a secret entry that only those ‘in the know’ know about. This year, State of Grace’s cellar bar Fall from Grace is celebrating New Year’s with luxury and sophistication in a Cotton Club-inspired 1920s Prohibition era-themed party blow-out. Live entertainment and drinks packages are available, so step back in time as the sun sets on another year. Find out more


Get in amongst the action this year at the Docklands. Check out fireworks from a great spot, enjoy live music and an all-round super-duper fun atmosphere. It’s a classic and for good reason. The central location means you can party until the spectacular fireworks display, then hit the nearby clubs and pubs to join in the after-parties and keep on boogying until the first sunrise of 2016.

Elevation 2016

Touted as the highest vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere (acrophobics, you might want to stop reading here), head on up to the 88th and 89th floor of the Eureka Tower for an utterly unforgettable New Year’s Eve experience like no other. There’s fireworks galore along with two levels of roving entertainment, gourmet canapés and grazing dishes, drinks, and DJs. Nothing can top this. Literally. Nothing. Find out more
