Whether you’re in your home town or on holiday, the hardest part about bringing in the new year is deciding the best way to celebrate on New Years Eve. Sometimes the decision can feel overwhelming, large crowds and traffic at public events might deter you or on the other hand, watching the fireworks on the television isn’t your idea of a party.
The good thing is, if you’re spending the new year in Noosa this year, you’ll be pleased to know our crowds are more manageable than the big cities, our dinner parties are stylish, and our family events are just as magic.
Here are our best tips to bring in 2020 in Noosa.
New Years Eve parties in Noosa for the adults
Dance the last night of 2019 away at one of Noosa’s best New Years Eve parties. On Hastings Street, start your night with a glass of bubbles and indulge in a delicious 5-course at the Noosa Beach House New Years Eve Late Dinner, or party with two of the Coast’s favourite DJs in a night full of house classics, funk and disco at Miss Moneypeny’s The Jungle Discotheque. Closer to Coco Bay in Noosaville, the Noosa Waterfront Restaurant & Bar is hosting a sophisticated and opulent evening with their Venetian Masquerade Ball and 5-course degustation menu. Mr & Mrs Jones & Me in Noosaville are also offering a 3-course dinner from 5pm. Bookings essential for all events.

The biggest free family New Years Eve event on the Sunshine Coast is at Mooloolaba along the Esplanade and Main Beach (just a 30 minute drive south of Noosa). From 4pm enjoy roving entertainment, street food, live music, DJ sets on the beach as well as fireworks at the family friendly time of 8.30pm and again at midnight. In Noosa, Villa Noosa Hotel on Mary Street in Noosaville are hosting a party for the kids with Old Macdonald’s Travelling Farm, Live entertainment and face painting from 5-8pm (book your table in advance).
