New Year’s Eve 2016 – Brisbane’s biggest yet

Acting Mayor Adrian Schrinner has announced that Brisbane’s 2016 New Year’s Eve will be the city’s biggest yet, with more fireworks and family fun than ever before.

Following the success of New Year’s Eve 2015, this year will again be a whole of city celebration, with key river precincts working together to deliver synchronised midnight fireworks, in addition to their range of festivities.

Cr Schrinner said Australian-first fireworks displays, extra launching platforms and an additional tonne of pyrotechnics will create an even brighter and more spectacular show for the people of Brisbane to enjoy.

“Brisbane’s skies will light up this New Year’s Eve with a host of new fireworks that have not yet been seen in Australia, including new types of aquatic fireworks, new aerial shells and multi-shot effects – there will also be butterfly-shaped fireworks, which will be a Queensland first,” Cr Schrinner said.

“Last year’s fireworks display featured three barges and five tonnes of fireworks; this year we will see an even more impressive show made up of six tonnes of fireworks launched from three barges and two pontoons.

“A family firework show will be held at South Bank and Hamilton Portside Wharf at 8:30pm, before an even bigger midnight celebration.

“At midnight there will be fireworks at three locations, as part of Brisbane’s city-wide approach to New Year’s Eve, with synchronised fireworks at Portside, Eagle Street Pier and South Bank.”

The soundtrack for the fireworks will be broadcast live at 8.30pm and midnight by HIT105.

Cr Schrinner said visitors who arrive early to South Bank can also enjoy an array of free, family-friendly entertainment while they wait for the main event.

“As always, our New Year’s Eve celebrations will be held at South Bank Parklands, with about 90,000 people expected to visit,” he said.

“The popular #NYEBrisbane photo booth will be back at the BRISBANE sign for the evening, allowing people to print copies of their social media pictures, capturing the excitement.

“The Cultural Forecourt will also feature free movies from 12.30pm and a collection of food trucks, while Rainforest Green will offer live music from local City Sounds artists between 3pm and 8pm.”

Cr Schrinner encouraged people to travel to celebrations via public transport, where possible, with a number of road closures in place to facilitate the celebrations.

“Public transport will be a convenient option for travel with additional bus and ferry services, provided for people wanting to enjoy the fireworks and other festivities. Buses and ferries will also be free for the trip home, from 8.45pm to 5.30am,” he said.

“Council will also be waiving tolls on the Go Between Bridge from 6pm Saturday to 2am on Sunday, during New Year’s Eve and will help motorists enjoy a quicker trip to and from the festivities in and around South Bank.

“Road closures around the CBD and South Brisbane will be in place from around 5.30pm, so we encourage motorists to plan their travel around the changed traffic conditions.”

Details about road closures are available at www.brisbane.qld.gov.au and information about bus and ferry routes and timetables is available at www.translink.com.au or by calling 13 12 30.

More Fireworks and family fun than ever before....  :frs:

Hey...why the select community spend on "fireworks" and "family events"????....I'm a single bloke, no kids....so, that's all as exciting to me, as watching different brand paints dry......Dulux slightly over British Paints...but both left in the dust be Haymes!

To avoid claims of "discrimination" and "favouritism", I'd kindly request, JUST the use of the immediate "pool area" of Southbank please - the rest is for everyone else, I'm not greedy - and I'd like ZERO fireworks, and ZERO "family events", instead, just a couple thousand bikini models and plenty of booze and a great, and FAIR equal opportunity night will be had by all!

Remember, no fireworks or "family events" expenditure....bikini girls and booze please - only in the pool area, everywhere else please let others use it, that's fair!

Thanks Q-Govt & BCC for supporting community diversity!

Something for everyone.....[for a change]

If urban rail was a sports stadium - there'd be a station on every corner!  Keep it LOUD for Pro-Rail!  :pr
