The City of Melbourne's annual free fireworks are jolly good fun for locals of all ages. This year you can get a vantage spot at Docklands, Treasury Gardens and Flagstaff. There will be free entertainment and DJs from 9pm at each location. Families are probably best served at Yarra Park, which will host 'Early Eve' from 6pm, with rides, activities and a mini fireworks display at 9.30pm (that should confuse nearby pissed revellers!).
This year there'll be more fireworks launched than ever before from various rooftops, so you've got a good chance of spotting them from home, too. For those making the trip, head to one of these stations:
Parliament (for Treasury Gardens), Flagstaff (Flagstaff Gardens) and Southern Cross (for Docklands) and Jolimont or Richmond for Yarra Park.
