Start 2015 with a bang at Brisbane’s best riverfront precinct, Portside Wharf with two fireworks displays over the Brisbane River at 9pm and the stroke of midnight.
Grab a taco from The Burrito Bar or fish and chips from Fresh and Wild, pick a spot along the river and settle in for the night while you enjoy live music from 7.30pm. The Hamilton precinct is also running courtesy buses to The Valley.
If it’s a party you’re looking for, nobody does them better than Byblos. Arabian Nights will be an evening of stunning costumes and entertainment, fabulous food and killer cocktails where guests will spend the night meandering through Arabian acts and displays. Indulge on substantial canapés and five hours of premium beverages including spirits, cocktails, beer and wine. The official party runs from 8pm – 1am then Byblos opens to the public until 3am for those who want to party ’til the wee hours.
Wear your best and brightest as you say goodbye to 2014 in style at Moda Events and celebrate with delicious canapés and a selection of beers, wines and soft drinks to keep you hydrated throughout the night.
