What’s on in Brisbane for New Year’s Eve 2016

December 8, 2016

New Years Eve is one of our absolutely favourite times of year.  It’s a time to reflect on the year that was and set bigger & better goals for 2017.

Our motto is always to MAKE THINGS HAPPEN and we start by writing down our goals on NYE and love to tick off the list throughout the year. It’s the best feeling ever when your dreams become reality!

There are so many fabulous things to do in Brisbane; some of the best fireworks are NYE on the banks of the Brisbane River when the clock strikes midnight.

nye2-1Southbank is always a fun place for families but anywhere along the Brisbane River where you can see the skyline is best for viewing our spectacular fireworks.

Brisbane has some of the best venues for NYE with pubs, clubs & restaurants all over Brisbane on offering; here are some of our favs…
