Perth celebrates New Year's Eve in style with fireworks and events along the famous Swan River, Rottnest Island, Mandurah and on the banks of the Cannington River.

If you have children, there are family-friendly shows earlier in the night. If you're having a night out with grown-ups only, party until the new year on a cruise, get tickets to the city's hottest parties or get down to Swan River for the midnight fireworks.

Whether you're a local or a visitor to Western Australia’s capital, use this guide to plan your big night.

Where to watch the New Year's Eve Perth fireworks

Locations to watch the Perth New Years Eve fireworks in 2020 are yet to be confirmed. Here's where you could watch the fireworks in 2019 and are likely to be the spots you can watch the fireworks to ring in 2021.

  • Northbridge: Fireworks at midnight. The events in Northbridge are hosted by the City of Perth and include family-friendly activities as well as the midnight fireworks.
  • Crown Perth and Swan River adjacent to Raffles Hotel: Fireworks at midnight. Two of the biggest hotels along the Swan River will light up at midnight for the new year.
  • Rockingham: Fireworks at 9pm and midnight. Rockingham always throws a big family-friendly event for New Year's Eve. The foreshore in Churchill Park will host a fair, children's entertainment and food stalls to keep everyone going throughout the night.
  • Mandurah. Fireworks at 9pm and midnight. Mandurah will also host family-friendly events with a silent disco, children's entertainment and food stalls.
  • Rottnest Island. Fireworks at 8pm. The early show allows the little ones to join in the fun before they get off to bed in time. Adults can kick up their heels throughout the night at one of the many parties and discos hosted by one of Western Australia’s most famous tourist attractions.
  • Cannington. Fireworks at midnight. Cannington Greyhounds on the banks of the Cannington River throws a New Year’s Eve bash with races, children's entertainment, rides and a live band. Children younger than 18 are allowed in for free but must be with an adult.

        Hi John, good to know you’re planning ahead for the new year!

        Whilst I haven’t celebrated new years in Perth myself, we provide a couple of suggestions for new years cruises on this page.

        New Year’s Eve cruises
        Make the evening a special one with a river cruise and take in one of Perth’s most beautiful features – the city’s waterways – as you celebrate 2018.

        Afloat Cruises: Hop aboard a five-hour cruise with a package complete with an open bar (spirits, sparkling and still wine, beer and soft drinks) and cocktail-style dining. There will be a DJ playing all night long and you’ll be able to watch both the sunset and the midnight fireworks form aboard the boat. Tickets are $199.

        Captain Cook Cruises: Join in on an 18+ Swan River cocktail cruise, taking in the Perth Skyline and midnight fireworks. The 4-hour sailing includes hot and cold canapes and a premium wine, beer and soft drink package. Tickets are $229.

        I hope this helps.

        Best,

        Jonathan
