Fire Eater on NYE MelbourneCelebrations for New Year’s Eve Melbourne are normally spread out at various locations around the city.  Some NYE events are taking place along the Yarra River, at the Docklands, Federation Square, and Southbank and the CBD.  There are also parties and events in suburbs close to the city as South Yarra, Fitzroy, St Kilda, Port Melbourne and Richmond.

There are free events provided by the city, including live music and fireworks.  The fireworks are a major attraction and now attract crowds of 600,000 – 750,000.
