Melbourne's New Year’s Eve celebrations coming back with a bang
How to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the City of Melbourne this year.
New Year's Eve is fast approaching. A time to bid farewell to 2021 and start off the new year with a fresh outlook. Luckily, with restrictions lifted, the City of Melbourne is going all out to help safely welcome in the new year with free festivities across the CBD.
The City of Melbourne will host four celebration zones across the city with an array of entertainment; seven outdoor precincts, food and drink, accompanied with live music.
Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp says she's looking forward to seeing people back in the city, enjoying all the festivals and activities on offer.
“Having our streets and laneways full of people with a sense of discovery, seeing people around, I just love it,” she says.
“We had Celebration Zones last year with much success. These were created across the city to keep people safe and manage the crowd while having a good time. Ultimately, we want to deliver the people of Melbourne a great time that is safe and compliant. These Celebration Zones represent that balance of celebration and compliance by delivering events in a COVID-Safe way.”
