party new year's eve canberraIt all comes alive for New Year’s Eve Canberra this 31st December. Full colour fireworks displays will light up the night skies at 9pm and midnight. And Lake Burley Griffin will mirror the frenetic pyrotechnic displays making for a gorgeous visual effect. And the midnight fireworks will be set to a super synchronised soundtrack.

Welcome in the New Year in the nations capitol with fabulous varied options of free council supported family parties and other private commercial events. With great viewing areas and many park area the 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.

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 or party.

At NYE it is summer in Canberra in December so it should be quite nice at night but do watch the weather as Canberra can get cold in the evenings.
