Once again, on New Years Eve at midnight, Goolwa skies will be lit up by a stunning fireworks display. The fireworks will be launched from the Hindmarsh Island bridge, offering spectators an excellent vantage point to enjoy the spectacle.


The display is organised by a small committee of volunteers and is made possible by the sponsorship of local businesses and community organisations. Many local families and individuals also choose to make donations to support this popular event.


Family and friends are invited to gather along the banks of the River Murray in readiness for midnight when the display begins. People often bring deck chairs, picnic blankets, and occasionally swags and cushions to enhance their comfort while they wait.


Glow sticks are welcome and dressing up for the occasion is encouraged.


Many people gather on private boats which are inevitably adorned with fairy lights adding colour and festivity to the occasion.


The shimmering water reflections create a captivating spectacle on their own.


The local 'Steamranger' train is expected to put in an appearance leading up to midnight. Passengers can depart Victor Harbor at 11:00pm, after the early VH fireworks display and run non-stop to Goolwa arriving at 11:30pm. The return train will depart Goolwa at 12:30am and arrive in Strathalbyn at around 1:30am.


Around 3000 locals and visitors are expected to watch the display this year. Some local businesses are selling tickets to their licensed events. The general public are requested to comply with local council 'dry zone' regulations along the river banks.


NYE Fireworks Off The Bridge is a free and family-friendly community event designed to celebrate our wonderful town and welcome in the new year.


Hope to see you there.
