The fun and entertainment does not stop here. Two spectacular fireworks displays will light the skies at 8.30pm and again at midnight to celebrate the incoming New Year as well as being the 'final' event of the 50th Anniversary Naming of the Sunshine Coast.

Please note that the iconic NYE - Mooloolaba is a safe, secure, fully-fenced, alcohol and glass-free zone and intoxicated people will not be permitted entry. To reduce the impact on the environment, chemical glow sticks and glow products (which are not recyclable and contain liquid which is extremely harmful to the environment) will not be permitted into the event - battery-operated LED products will be acceptable.

Pet owners should ensure that pets are safe and secure as the amplified music and fireworks at NYE Mooloolaba could be distressing to pets.

NYE - Mooloolaba is presented by the Sunshine Coast Council in association with Mix FM, Sea FM and The Surf Club Mooloolaba.

See the New Year in with a dazzling display of fireworks and fantastic family fun - why not bunny-hop from one event to the next to enjoy more than just one New Year's Eve celebration - it is, after all, a very special day of the year!
Happy 2018!
