New Year’s Eve celebrations for Melbourne are normally spread out at various locations around the city.  Some focus for party places are along the Yarra River, at the Docklands, Federation Square, and Southbank.  There are also parties and events in suburbs close to the city as South Yarra, Fitzroy, St Kilda, Port Melbourne and Richmond.
