Don’t let memories of past anticlimactic New Year’s Eve parties stop you from giving it your all this year. From club nights to watching fireworks from Melbourne's parks, there's plenty happening around the city to help you ring in the new year in style.

Kick off your New Year's Eve festivities at Melbourne's best rooftop bars and the best beer gardens for summer drinking.
