The month of December leads us through the festive ride to Christmas Day and the ultimate entry to the next year via NYE.
NYE can be a night of glitz, glamour and sparkles or one of earned exuberance, luckily the Gold Coast is one destination that can give you all of that and MORE!! In true Gold Coast style you have the multiple options to celebrate with beach and boat parties, glamorous and glitzy events and good old-fashioned pub and club parties.
Planning the night of activities for a night such as NYE can be a mammoth task, however we hope to make the task a little easier with a list of dedicated events and even some must visit locations to see the fireworks displays.
