The cool thing about New Year’s Eve in Perth is that the city is absolutely jumping. Get off your couch this New Year’s and experience the best Perth has to offer!

Streets Happy Zoo Year

We’re not gonna lie; it’s almost worth attending this for the lame punny dad joke name alone, but Perth Zoo’s ‘Happy Zoo Year’ event also just happens to be bringing the fun this year too. An awesome family-friendly event with something for kids of all ages, there’s a kids’ dance party, stage acts and live shows, magic show, and live band all happening until the crack of 9pm. Find out more…


Who likes to party? Perth likes to party! Head down to the Claremont Showgrounds for the sickest rap, hip hop, dubstep, bass, and house music artists that 2015 had to offer and ring in the new year with the raddest tracks about to hit 2016 for the Origin NYE club event. Now in its 9th incarnation, Origin NYE is absolutely delivering the goods this year. Dance your socks off, enjoy a diverse blend of DJs, awesome beats, and get down with your mates for a NYE so good you’re probably not going to remember it. Find out more…

Kings Park

It’s a classic spot for a reason, but Kings Park really is the best place for families to ring in the new year. Any day of the week, Kings Park is a great place to be in the city, and as one of the world’s largest inner city parks, when New Year’s Eve rolls around, there’s plenty of room for everyone. Get there early and enjoy some snacks or a lunch picnic and settle in for a fun day with the kidlets.

NYE on the Foreshore

That’s it. We’re making the claim. Nothing beats the Perth foreshore on New Year’s Eve. Champas, cocktails, DJs, live bands, silent disco, roving performers and all kinds of entertainment will be there to rock out and leave 2015 in the dust. If you want to ring in 2016 in style, burn through your Christmas bonus by booking one of the VIP packages. There’s a couple to choose from, and they include gourmet canapés and buffet dinner, drinks, private amenities (which are worth their weight in gold on New Year’s), VIP areas and riverside seating. Find out more…

NYE White Party

There’s extravagant, and then there’s this. In its second year running, the Matisse Beach Club on The Esplanade in Scarborough are hosting their lavish New Year’s Eve White party. It promises to be an epic night with actual mermaids (well, maybe not actual), break dancers, theatrics and all kinds of entertainment, as well as a great selection of drinks. Really splash out with your mates and get yourself a package deal with 10 or 12-person cabana packages available and indoor booths for up to 10 people. You can chow down, drink up and ring in 2016 in unforgettably lavish fashion. Find out more…
