The New Year’s extravaganza will see Surfers Paradise become a playground of unforgettable festivities to end the year with amusement rides, activities and attractions across the foreshore suitable for both the young and young at heart.

It wouldn’t be New Year’s without amazing fireworks! This family-friendly event will see not one, but two spectacular displays that will light up the foreshore at 8pm and midnight with DJ’s and MC’s sending 2019 out with a bang until the clock strikes midnight.

There will be plenty of action around the precinct to start the New Year in style. Be sure to rise to the occasion and make a night of the evening with many great options of accommodation, restaurants, bars and clubs within Surfers Paradise.
