Melbourne: NYE fireworks up close

I don’t think I’ve gone out on New Years’ Eve to watch the fireworks in Melbourne (except maybe once when I was really little). I really don’t enjoyed crowded and loud places. In recent years we’ve gone to my uncle’s apartment where we can see a the fireworks, since he lives very close to the city. Since moving into my own apartment, which is located close to The Yarra River, I’ve been watching the fireworks from my balcony! Because the fireworks are set off from various tall points across the city and I’m fairly central, I don’t get a view of the all the fireworks though, just close ups of the few from nearby buildings.




  • Your view isn’t too shabby! Would be so good to watch form the comfort of your own home, haha.

    • Thank you! I would love to view Sydney’s someday but the crowds again put me off.
