What’s on in Adelaide
Adelaide City Council is expecting thousands to attend numerous New Year’s Eve events taking place at various locations around the city.
Rymill Park on the corner of East Terrace and Rundle Rd hosts a free Light Up Festival with two fireworks shows, one at 9:30pm and the other at midnight.
Adelaide Fringe organisers, Gluttony, are putting together the ticketed event and say it will be bigger than previous years, with multiple stages for performances, itinerant artists, pop-up bars and interactive activities for families.
The event will be capped at 8,000 people and the council says it has poured extra funds into this year’s fireworks display after a decision to cancel a drone show.
Several bars and restaurants along Rundle Street, Peel Street and Leigh Street also hold their own countdown celebrations which can be found on the City of Adelaide website.
Glenelg, Henley Beach and Semaphore Fireworks
If the beach is more your type of New Year’s Eve venue, Glenelg’s New Year’s Eve celebrations are outdoors.
Entertainment begins at 7pm with the Australian Rock Collective performing as the crowd counts down to 2023.
There will be two fireworks, at 9.30pm and midnight.
There will be no official fireworks displays at Semaphore or Henley Beach, although some restaurants will host their own NYE ticketed events.
Victor Harbor and Goolwa Fireworks
If you’re planning to stay near Adelaide, New Year’s Eve celebrations are held in Victor Harbor and Goolwa, an hour’s drive from the city.
The Victor Harbor celebrations begin at 7:30 p.m. at Warland Reserve, with performances on stage and access to rides, miniature golf, free face painting and a petting zoo.
There will be two fireworks shows including one for the children at 9.45pm.
In Goolwa, people can watch the midnight fireworks at a picnic by the river, or even from home, as organizers launch it from the Hindmarsh Island Bridge, which they say can be seen for miles.
