Not Sure What to Do on New Years' Eve - Read on
New Year's Eve is one of those exciting nights of the year and one of the few that I will nowadays stay up late for. There is a lot of choice of what to do on this iconic night, and I have put together a variety of popular places you could go to.
RESTAURANTS There are so many choices in restaurants on New Year's Eve in Perth. Perhaps best to pick one close to home or you will spend a lot of extra money on taxis. Prices will be inflated for this event so make sure you check the menu first, and many of them require payment before the event.
Some suggestions are: *MUST WINE BAR Mt Lawley - this French bar food/wine bar won an award several years ago and is at 519 Beaufort St, Highgate, and they have over 500 wines available with a sleek decor. Bookings and payment are essential before the event.
Stay until 2 am and watch as the clock strikes midnight! You will receive a complimentary glass of Taittinger on your arrival and then enjoy a four-course menu. They say "it is all about laughter and fun" as you bring in the new year.
*GUILDFORD HOTEL This iconic old hotel will be concentrating on good food and fun for this New Year's Eve. Situated at 159 James Street, Guildford, there is parking behind the hotel but ONLY if you are not going to drink. Their theme is MIDNIGHT IN CALI. Here you can party Californian-style and countdown to midnight with the three "B's" - the best beats, beverages and bites until the early morning.

You can also have your party catered for if you do not want all the work!

There will also be complimentary beer, wine and soft drink throughout the night, and this leaves at 8 pm and arrives back at the jetty at 12.30 pm. Cost is $235 per adult, children $210 with infants free.
Wherever you go for New Year's Eve, do NOT drive if you have been drinking and remember to order your taxis well in advance before the night, and may you all have a happy, and healthy 2017.
