New Years Eve in the Whitsundays
With its lively ‘village-like’ atmosphere and strip of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, Airlie Beach is certainly one of the most popular towns to celebrate the New Year.
Bringing in the year 2016 is certainly no exception to this with a large number of events organised as a number of different venues around town.
So what can you expect?
The main street of Airlie Beach is always buzzing on December 31 with plenty of live entertainment happening as the usual venues including Magnums and Base, and all of the local restaurants full of people (bookings are essential at most places).
One of the highlights of the evening has to be the Reef Festival fireworks display from the foreshore which can be seen from most venues in the main street.
The main venues for those who are looking for a party atmosphere are: Magnums, Base, Paddy's Shenanigans, Down Under Bar, Phoenix, Boom and Mama Africa.
