New Year's Eve is on its way, so it is time to celebrate all around the Nelson Bay region! Last year in 2020 the fireworks in Nelson Bay were cancelled due to COVID-19 and at the time of writing (11th December), they are still to be announced for 2021 (see the Port Stephens Council Facebook and their Events page for the latest news). With or without the fireworks, there are still plenty of events around the region to celebrate the end of 2021.

Keep reading for decadent dinners, colourful cocktails, scenic cruises, '80's tunes and Drag Queen Bingo - there's something for everyone! Where will you be going?

Cheeky Dog Bar at Bannisters Hotel at Soldiers Point will be having a NYE Drag Queen Bingo with Timberlina! This free event will begin at 7pm and then there will be music until late. Although the event is free, bookings are required for numbers and COVID restrictions - see here for details.

Also, check out your local restaurant or club, to see what's happening near you. You may find that many waterside restaurants book out early for dinner reservations on New Year's Eve, so book in early to avoid disappointment. Popular ones include Little Beach Boathouse, The Point, The Deck and Rick Stein's at Bannisters Port Stephens (see here for website links). Alternatively, take a drive to Newcastle and take part in their festivities and firework spectacular. If you're looking for a recovery party the next day, then check out Murray's Brewery at Bobs Farm, for some live music, burgers and large pizzas to get you back to your former self. There are large, shady trees for a quick power nap on your picnic blanket too!

Wherever you go, have a Happy New Year in Port Stephens!
