Hot spots for NYE
Heading into the city for the biggest New Year's Eve party in town? We've scoped out the best spots for you to enjoy all the festivities.
In front of the Festival Centre
The ground directly in front of the Festival Centre, adjacent the River Torrens is slightly raised. This offers a great vantage point for the on-stage entertainment as well as prime viewing for the 9 pm and midnight HomeStart fireworks. There will also be a licenced area, toilets, a water station and a wheelchair accessible viewing platform nearby.
Front and centre stage
See all the action on-stage, up close and personal. With such a great live music line-up, this is the place to park your picnic rug and soak up all the energy of the performances, dance the night away and not to mention enjoy the spectacular HomeStart fireworks with the stunning reflections off the river.
