OK I may have bias because I am a Sydneysider but if you can get live coverage of the Sydney fireworks I would stay in with a bottle of sparkling and watch it on TV.

But then I am biased.

Thanks so much - We were in Sydney for New year's eve several years ago and found it spectacular - Very family oriented and fun crowd!! What is your thought about Melborne vs Hobart? Debbie

Hi Debbie,

All I can suggest is that you spend it in a major population centre unless you want a real quiet night. Most newspapers will have details regarding free entertainment and Melbourne also has some impressive fireworks.

If you want to go to a function....dinner/show then it best to conatct your hotel and ask advice as to local entertianment as this type of thing may need to be booked ahead.
