New Year’s Eve on Rottnest Island - 4pm till late

End the year with a shimmering, sparkling BANG! as you bring in the new year with a spectacular Fireworks display over stunning Thomson Bay.

Setting off early, the 9pm display time allows our littlest spectators to come down to Thomson Bay to join in the fun. There is loads of Free entertainment and live music including:

  • WASAMBA drumming entertainment
  • Face painters using glow in the dark paint!
  • Fireworks at 9:00pm
  • Sand Art
  • Plus more!

After the fireworks show, various venues around the Island will be hosting special NYE parties for those who want to party into the New Year!
