DIY Wotz on Guide for NYE

By Genie - 30 December 2008 23

[First Filed: December 28, 2008 @ 08:08]

Just throwing a lifeline out there to find out what there is to do in Canberra to bring in 2009 ??

Gots nowhere to throw my own party, and wanted to find some events to attend.

Don’t really care about people’s ‘private’ plans, but if anyone can be helpful to let us know whats happening in and around Canberra…

What’s Your opinion?

Seems like Canberra has also not gotten to the stage of celebrating the current New Year’s Eve, touch wood.
Check out; we’ll be celebrating NYE 2007!
See you all in a year’s time to celebrate NYE 2008.

Gosh I hope that Bee Gees tribute band are there. They really know how to rock it HARD.

The Albert Hall thing is also all ages which usually equals lots of drunk 16 year olds.

Has anyone been to the Hyatt gig before? Alternatively are there any nice restaurants doing anything special?

I heard an ad on the radio for the Albert Hall thing, it’s a dance party. You have to buy tickets apparently.

Regardless of the original posters intentions, I reckon house parties are the wayto go, for every reason described by me in thedrink driving thread.

Canberra has not gotten to teh stage where its unsafe to have a party at home yet… touch wood.

consume esky

i don’t think insulating foam and plastic is a healthy nye feast, ant… 🙂

usually a good vibe on woolley street for nye – good food, a few bars, pretty lights and chinese who let off fireworks at the drop of a hat!

Find a nice spot by the lake, consume esky, let off crackers and play music of choice at loud volume. Invite friends.

Easy peasy.

Something on at the ALbert Hall although I have no idea what it is…

Screw Canberra, go to Sensation in Melbourne!

The ARHS (ACT) are running a special train that leaves at 9am Wednesday from Canberra (Kingston), also stopping at Queanbeyan, to Sydney, for those who want to go celebrate New Years Eve there.

It allows plenty of time to grab dinner in Sydney, see the fireworks, and crawl back to Sydney Terminal station for a 2am departure, arriving back at Canberra around 10am.

Sleeping berths are $369pp (return).

(It won’t work for me though, since I’m already in Sydney til a week after New Years)

From the Summernats site:

8.00pm : Jack Daniels Bar opens
9.00pm – 12.30am : Masters Of Rock Show Band in the Jack Daniels Bar
12.45am : Bar Closes

The night before Summernats = packs of drunk guys cruising Civic = me staying far away from the city.

Will probably just do drinks at a friend’s place… sorry Genie 🙂

A couple of options for those desperate enough.

    The family friendly concert in Civic Square will kicking off at 7.30pm and conclude at 12.45am. Bass in the Place will start at 9pm and continue until late. Both events are alcohol free. For more information contact Canberra Connect on 132281 or visit

    Fireworks at both 9PM and Midnight fired from up on City Hill.

    I’m sure SummerNats will be having some sort of shenanigans.
