NYE fireworks a success

Docklands’ New Year’s Eve 9.15pm family fireworks were under threat last year but have again proven themselves with a blaze of colour and energy.

The City of Melbourne considered dumping the family show but more than 15,000 turned out this year to enjoy the spectacle in Victoria Harbour.

And those who were awake for the midnight fireworks were treated as the sky was lit-up with fireworks launched from both a barge and off the tops of 15 buildings throughout Docklands and the CBD.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the council was extremely happy with the crowd numbers, particularly in Docklands.

“More than 15,000 revellers watched the fireworks at 9.15pm and midnight. As a key vantage point to watch the fireworks from, Docklands is increasing in popularity and crowd numbers are growing substantially every year,” Cr Doyle said.

However, although the night was a success, there is no guarantee that Docklands will be hosting the fireworks this year.

“As with all events, we will commence a full debrief of New Year’s Eve over the next few weeks and all firing sites and vantage points will be reviewed as part of this,” he said.
