New Years Eve in Melbourne 2019

Relive and reminisce on the year that was..

It’s almost the end of another year, so let’s take a moment to acknowledge those 2018 resolutions that didn’t make the “I accomplished” list this year. The promises we make to ourselves that will make the list once again come midnight New Years Eve 2019. They deserve a minute of silence. So, as the New Year quickly approaches and promises to once again be the biggest night of social calendars.

We thought it was only fitting to put together a list of Melbourne’s top places to be to celebrate this momentous evening.

Melb Cruises

With a Yarra River cruise to suit any age, dance ability and social craving the good people at Melb Cruises have your midnight countdowns on the water all wrapped up. From a four hour dining experience not to be forgotten, to on board DJs smashing out the best hits to find your grove while entertaining the excitement that is New Years Eve.  If you would rather watch the city skyline light up and be in bed before 12 then there is a cruise for you too. All put you in prime position to watch the spectacular fireworks display.


New Years Eve ‘ELEVATION’

Nothing says bringing the year in on a high like being 300 metres above Melbourne in the famous Eureka Towers. With unparalleled views of the city, 360 accessible, live entertainment, grazing dishes and DJs to delight. New Years Eve ‘ELEVATION’ is the party of the season. Bonus there is a free tram stop right outside Crowne Plaza hotel, making crashing back onto our refurbished beds more convenient.
