Hundreds of families, couples and party goers brought in the new year with fireworks, fun and fabulous food at Brisbane’s sophisticated luxury residential and retail development along the river in Hamilton – Portside Wharf.

There truly was something for everyone at the waterfront precinct on New Year’s Eve, from fine dining options, to take away options with free entertainment.

Plenty of families opted to pick a spot along the river with a taco from The Burrito Bar or fish and chips from Fresh and Wild, and settle in for the night while enjoying live music on the wharf. Those that chose to have a night in at one of the luxury riverfront apartments, were able to enjoy the two fireworks displays at 9pm and midnight from the balconies.

For those that chose to wine and dine, the riverside restaurants across the precinct pulled together a host of dining and entertainment packages to help them celebrate in style.

Cruisers Cafe Bar and Grill catered for the early birds, with a 5.00pm – 7.30pm seating, which included a three course set menu plus bubbles on arrival, followed by an 8.00pm seating for those looking to party on a little later, which included a three course set menu and a two hour drinks package with wine, beer, bubbles and cocktails.

Belvedere Bar and Grill served up a delicious three course set menu, and for those looking for something a little exclusive, the Plumm Room was available for a group of 20.  

If traditional Italian is more your style, Gusto da Gianni was the perfect spot for New Year’s Eve with a three course meal, and the option to bring the kids along for just $59.00 for 12-16 year olds, with the standard kids menu available for those under 12 years.

Many fun loving party goers danced the night away at one Brisbane’s most popular annual New Year’s Eve Events.

Moda Events’ funky cocktail party was a hit with those that embraced the theme – black and white with a touch of bright – indulged in sumptuous canapés and drinks and enjoyed the best music from the 60s to today, which kept them dancing all night.

For something more exotic, Byblos put on a NYE Summer Carnivale where guests were transported to a balmy South American summer’s evening, amongst a sea of palm trees, Brazilian carnivale dancers and a Calypso drummer with all food and beverages included.

For those that were hoping to see the sun come up on New Year’s Day, Portside Wharf even ran buses into the Valley from 12.30am to 1.30am. We know where you will be this coming New Year’s Eve!
