You might be a seasoned Fireworks veteran or are bringing the family down for the first time, here’s a few local tips for the Docklands New Year’s Eve Fireworks…


DJ Elle will keep the crowd revved up at the Harbour Esplanade Live site from 10pm.


Harbour Esplanade – closed to traffic and trams, packed with entertainers and food options – the busiest and closest place to the Fireworks that launch from Marvel Stadium and Customs House


Ron Barassi Snr Oval – quickly becoming less of a secret. Bring a picnic, a rug and take your spot on the grass with great views of all the Melbourne fireworks


Docklands restaurants – they all have a New years’ Eve package, generally unlimited drinks and a food package.


The Library – just short of the Docklands library are some wonderful grassy hills perfect for setting up a picnic with amazing views of all the Docklands Fireworks
