New Years Eve

Only a few events are celebrated worldwide, with New Year’s celebrated in every corner of the earth. Whether it’s the fireworks on the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Ball Drop at Times Square, New Year’s Eve is always celebrated in extravagant style.

In Melbourne, fireworks are just the beginning of an unmissable New Year’s Eve celebration in the city, with various music, dining and dance events happening throughout the day and night.

New Year’s Eve Melbourne, 2024/2025 City Events & Fireworks Locations

New Year’s Eve in Melbourne is one of the most anticipated celebrations of the year. As it is summertime in Melbourne and most people can enjoy the public holiday the next day, many flock to the city for this massive celebration.

Come dressed in your best glittery get up, and see the city sparkle into 2025 at the free Celebration Zones. Melbourne’s night sky will light up twice on New Year’s Eve, with family-friendly fireworks at 9:30pm in the Celebration Zones and a Midnight Moment of rooftop fireworks and lasers.

The very best view of the Midnight Moment is from afar, where you’ll see the city shine bright with fireworks and lasers. Find your own location anywhere in the greater Melbourne area and enjoy the spectacle without the crowds- as long as you can see the skyline, you’ll get a good show!

With New Year’s Eve being one of the busiest times of the year, it’s essential you follow crowd control instructions from staff on the ground. Closures and detours will occur between Russell St and Elizabeth St and Collins St and Linlithgow Ave from 10:30pm.

New Year’s Eve in the city can be noisy and overwhelming for our furry friends, so please leave your pets at home. Assistive animals and Guide Dogs are allowed.

If you are ringing in 2024 from the comfort of your own home, tune into Channel 9 from 11pm to see the very best bits of the city’s New Year’s Eve live celebrations and festivities. Gather your friends and family, turn on the telly and look back at the year that was 2024. Stay up for the official countdown and watch city-wide coverage of the midnight fireworks.

Road closures, tow-away zones and vessel exclusion zones

Several road closures and tow-away zones will be in place across the city before, during and after New Year’s Eve. Public transport is the best way to travel to and from the city, but if you need to drive, expect long traffic delays.
