Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

If you want to celebrate New Year's Eve in Melbourne with the kids - without getting caught up in any drunken carousing way past their bedtime - then take the train to Richmond or Joliment and hit Yarra Park next to the MCG.

From 6pm you'll be able to listen to live sets from Them Swoops, Sol Nation, Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows, and the Cactus Channel, with the fireworks going off with a whiz-bang at 9.30pm. There are carnival rides, too - the only cost in this free event.
