Frequently asked questions about staying in Melbourne for New Year's Eve

Where are the Melbourne New Year's Eve fireworks?

The 2020/2021 fireworks haven't been given the green light yet.

For an idea of where to stay if they do go ahead, Melbourne's main New Year's Eve fireworks displays are typically best viewed along the Yarra River and in the Docklands.

There are four designated "celebration zones" - Kings Domain, Treasury Gardens, Flagstaff Gardens and the Docklands.

Where should I stay in Melbourne on New Year's Eve?

The CBD, Docklands and South Yarra are within easy reach of all of the city's official New Year's Eve celebration zones.

What are the best hotels for views of the Melbourne New Year's Eve fireworks?

River-facing rooms in hotels along the Yarra River such as Quay West Suites Melbourne, The Langham, Melbourne, Crown Towers Melbourne, Pan Pacific Melbourne and Crowne Plaza Melbourne are your best bet for a view from your room.

As specific rooms often can't be guaranteed at the time of booking, we recommend double checking with the hotel that you can get a view from your room to avoid disappointment on the night.
