It’s not even November yet, but we already know a lot about what to expect for the New Year’s Eve fireworks and celebrations this year. Get hyped up for the biggest celebration yet, with fireworks and laser displays from 30 rooftops around the CBD. That’s eight more rooftops than previous years. Alongside the fireworks, there will be music, food, light installations and more. Here’s what we know so far.
New Year’s Eve fireworks and celebrations
Ring in the New Year with a dazzling fireworks display, set to an eight-minute soundtrack curated by Melbourne producer and DJ Mike Katz. Put on your party hats and enjoy the midnight display from anywhere with city skyline views.
“There is no place like Melbourne at New Year’s and we’re putting our best foot forward to bring in 2023 with a not-to-be-missed spectacular of fireworks, laser beams and music,” said Lord Mayor Sally Capp. “If you can see the city skyline, you’ll be able to see the fireworks.”
Similar to last year, there will be Celebration Zones set up at Docklands, Flagstaff Gardens, Treasury Gardens and Kings Domain. Enjoy a family-friendly celebration at these four zones, with DJs, live music, dance workshops, light installations, food trucks and a 9:30pm localised fireworks display.
Half a million visitors are expected to flock to the city for celebrations this year. Marina Prior and John Foreman will host the Aussie Pops Orchestra’s New Year’s Eve Gala extravaganza at Arts Centre Melbourne. Meanwhile, Sidney Myer Music Bowl will feature some of the world’s best live acts at Falls Festival.
If you’d rather enjoy the fireworks at home, you can tune in to the official live broadcast on Channel 9 from 11pm.
