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.
Celebrate NYE in style
On New Year's Eve, Welcome to Thornbury will be pulling out all the stops. Each ticket will come with food vouchers, so you can fuel up on food from the Mr Burger, Roadrunner Fried Chicken, Copa Food Truck, and Super Taco food trucks. Tap beer and house wine are included in ticket prices from 7pm to midnight.
If you're going to do a lush New Year's Eve, do it right and head to the Eureka Tower. Buy a silver ticket ($210) to Level 88, where you'll be treated to canapés and drinks all night at bird's eye level of the city. If you really want to make the start of 2017 a special one, buy the gold ticket ($300) to level 89 for the best view in town.
This New Year's Eve, Shannon Bennett invites you to explore the personalities, cultures and cuisines that have shaped Paris over the years. High atop the Rialto, you'll be immersed in a dark space of matte blacks with glass orbs hovering above, and city lights glittering far below. For $350 per person, you're suspended in a galaxy of cocktails and canapes. Bookings are essential.
