Where to See the Fireworks on New Year’s Eve

Kenneth Street Longueville

The best place to see the fireworks is in Longueville.

This year the theme is ‘One Night: Many Ways to Celebrate”, with artists 18YOMAN and Nooky to score an original music track for the 9 pm show and Brisbane-based group The Sweats curating the music for the midnight display.

The midnight fireworks display will mark the close of 2023 and celebrate the start of 2024. The complete program and other information are here if you want to view the fireworks closer to the CBD.

Many families go to the 9 pm fireworks and then go home. Any side street off Kenneth Street in Longueville facing the harbour is ideal.

However, parking in Lane Cove and walking to Longueville is highly recommended.  If you drive into Longueville, you will spend at least an hour after the fireworks trying to leave Longueville.

New Year’s Eve Suppliers

We have a few tips on getting ready for the big night. Pop into Porter’s Liquor Northwood and speak to them about your drink requirements. They offer glasses and free delivery, and you can return any alcohol you do not use (that has not been on ice and the labels are legible). They are so good at the party caper, that they can tell you how much each person will generally drink!!!!
