Have a ball on New Year's Eve at one of these events
Well, it's that time again - another year almost gone and there is so much on New Year's Eve each year, and there seem to be more and more choice of events to attend - or is it perhaps as I get older, it just seems like more!
Host a party yourself is one great option but entails a fair amount of work, so maybe accept an invitation to another private party 9and less work)! There are restaurants, public parties, nightclubs, festivals, and so much more - too many to list, so I have picked some that I find appealing and hope you get something out of this list.
1. ROTTNEST ISLAND
This would be a great getaway at this time of year, however, you would need to book now in order to get in anywhere. They will be celebrating New Year's Eve from 4 pm till late. Here you can end the year with a shimmering, sparkling bang as you bring in the new year with a spectacular fireworks display over the stunning Thomsons Bay.
For this one, it will be a "back to school" event so dig out your sexiest uniforms, your hottest cheerleader outfits, and come along! Outside its Spring Break party time with heaps of dance hits and beach balls. Inside it's back to school retro with hits from the 80s, 90s, 00s and beyond to bring back all those high school memories.
Tickets available from Eventbrite, or thecourt.com.au.
