New Years Eve
And last but not least there is the spectacular light show at South Brisbane for New Years Eve. There are two firework displays this year with a family displayÂ at 6.30pm for the children and then the final countdown at 12pm to bring in the new year. Make sure to check official websites to see what is allowed in on the night as security is pretty tight and restrictions do apply. Public transport is also the better choice with road closures and traffic delays expected on the night.
