Fire Eater at NYE MelbourneCelebrations for New Year’s Eve Melbourne are spread out at various locations around the City of Melbourne. The cities restaurants, bars, hotels and entertainment areas come alive like no other day of the year. NYE parties take place at venues 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 such as South Yarra, Fitzroy, St Kilda, Port Melbourne and Richmond.

There are free New Years Eve events provided by the City of Melbourne, including live music and fireworks.  The NYE fireworks are a major attraction and crowds of 600,000 to 750,000 regularly attend. In Australia, Melbourne NYE is the second largest New Year’s Eve celebration in the country.
