It's Autumn but New Year's Eve is only 9 months away

New Year's Eve 2016/2017 to be the best?

If you are thinking of hatching some grand fun ideas for next NYE, then it's time to seed the thoughts now!  

Are you starting to get your NYE plans hatched?
YES it's only 9 months until the biggest party of the year on 31st December 2016.  So get your groove on and seed your friends with naughty NYE ideas!

It might be trying to get your friends sorted with a fab party location.  We always say, it's never too early to talk New Years.  It might be reminiscing over previous years or the superb anticipation of the next one!

Darwin is one hot destination for 2016 NYE that should be on the planning books. And if you haven't been to Sydney for NYE then that always needs to be booked early! Perth NYE, Melbourne New Years and NYE Brisbane are crowd favourites too!  Hobart, Canberra and Adelaide are building reputations for quality NYE parties and fun!   And party town, the Gold Coast is starting to kick it for New Years fun with venues selling out early!  The White Party went off on the Gold Coast last year. 

Whatever you do get the NYE plans on the radar for you and your friends.  Big Days indeed!

Sydney New Years Eve 2016/17 planning underway

Sydney NYE 2016 / 2017 planning underway

The Sydney NYE just gets bigger and bigger! 

As does the New Years celebrations all over Australia!  New Year's Eve in Oz really is a national celebration that the world looks on with envy! With only just under two months since the roadies and cleaners packed up after a massive NYE, plans are already afoot around the country for seeing out 2016 and welcoming in 2017! 

With Sydney a centre piece of the World NYE tour we are blessed to have this gem! It is thought by the bean counters to agitate around $160million of activity to the local Sydney economy.  We probably think it is more than that given lead and shadow times of international visitors!  Surely, it's got to be heading to a billion dollars nationally! Looking ahead and by February 2016 we can see on our New Year's Eve Sydney site stats that many internationals are already looking to planning their NYE 2016 down under.  Over 18 years now we have been running so we have a fair idea! 

And these plans of international visitors will be supported by a fabulous exchange rate for any travelers wanting to come and party NYE down under!  Whether it is in Sydney, Manly, Bondi or Newcastle...  But visitors should also look to take in Australia's other NYE gems like Melbourne NYE, Perth NYE and one that caught the eye this year ... Brisbane NYE!   Good times!

The promoters and venues around Australia are all busy starting to make plans!  We'll be on it!

Another NYE done and dusted & Another NYE to look forward to!

NYE party Melbourne

Another New Year's Done!

How good was your NYE?  Yes it's January 21 and we have just surfaced after a sensational NYE in Melbourne tasted first hand.  From all reports right around this awesome country Oz was the place to be on 31st December!  Brisbane went off and Sydney bedazzled it's host of international visitors. Hobart was sensational, Darwin incredible, Canberra fun, Adelaide partied, the Gold Coast went nuts and Perth is still partying!

NYE fireworks Melbourne from the skyWhatever you got up to with your NYE friends, it's now time to checkout the myriad of New Years party photos from all the venues around Oz.  Checkout the fun happy snap photos via our NYE Facebook page.  We are certainly loving the memories that these NYE happy snaps bring.  By the photos it would seem the number of fireworks shows out did previous years.
And did you do any NYE Resolutions?  Hoping you have not broken them already!

NYE Resolution I want to go to a good NYE party next yearAnd at this time in January / February and March it's a super idea to just lightly think thru what you might like to do for New Years 2016 / 2017.   With so many events and things to do sold out it is better to be planning early and make sure you get what you want.  And if you went to a lame NYE party then looking forward to NYE 2016 / 2017 is worth all the wait using  Have a great 2016 people!

The Price to Party this NYE in Australia

Summer loving in Australia

New Years Party Prices in Oz

With the Australian dollar at a seven year low hovering around the US70 cents mark, there is no doubt Australia is a very attractive destination this summer of 2015 / 2016 for international visitors.  Tourist visitors love to come to Australia in Summer for the warm climate and warm hospitality.  The state of the exchange rates will amplify that attraction no doubt.  It always helps no end when the value is half the price and the locals don't even know it!  The banana republic lives on! 

If you are into parties and good times then the jewel in the crown of summer in Australia is New Years Eve. And every tourist is up for a good time.  So a sneak peak look at what it costs to party around Australia this NYE. All prices quoted are for one person. Check prices with venues. 

NYE event costs around Australia for 2015.
