It all comes alive for New Year’s Eve Canberra this 31st December 2024. Welcome in the New Year in the Australian capitol with fabulous varied options of free council supported family NYE parties and other private commercial events. Gardens and parks and civic areas come alive. With great viewing areas and many park area with free events will be well attended. And make sure you book early for the commercial NYE events as these will sell out.
All public NYE events supported by the Canberra Council are alcohol free events. Please drink responsibly and get a great start to 2025.
Getting around Canberra on the 31st December is best sorted with the public transport Action Buses or the Night Rider bus options. Or do as our NYE Concierge suggests and organise accommodation close to your New Years event to see out 2024 and party into 2025.
NYE is in Summer in Canberra in December so it should be quite a nice night on 31st December but do watch the weather as Canberra can get cold in the evenings.
