Perth Prepares for Largest New Year’s Eve Fireworks Display Since 2000

Perth Lord Mayor Promises Biggest New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show Yet

Perth Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas is excited to announce that this year’s New Year’s Eve fireworks show in Perth will be the biggest the city has seen since the historic Sydney Olympics. Zempilas stated, “We’re set for the biggest New Year’s Eve in the City of Perth since the start of this new century back in the year 2000.”

A Family-Friendly Celebration

In recent years, Perth has not been known for its extravagant New Year’s Eve fireworks displays, reserving such spectacles for Australia Day. However, two years ago, the City of Perth decided to introduce a light and fireworks display, along with a festival in the CBD, as part of their summer events calendar. Zempilas proudly shared, “It’s quickly become the biggest New Year’s event in Perth.”

The Main Event: Elizabeth Quay Fireworks

The highlight of the evening will be the Elizabeth Quay fireworks display at 8pm. Thousands of pyrotechnics will light up the sky, creating a dazzling show choreographed to music. Zempilas revealed, “This year’s show features 10,000 shells fired off three barges, running for 15 minutes. It’s the biggest family-friendly New Year’s Eve show Perth has ever seen.”

Other Festivities and Events

In addition to the fireworks, there are several other exciting events happening in Perth to ring in the new year. Crown Perth will host the opening night of the hit musical & Juliet, offering a fresh take on Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. SNACK Festival is also expected to draw a crowd of 30,000 to Claremont Showground.

Getting Ready for the New Year

For those who prefer a more traditional celebration, the city and Northbridge party crowd can enjoy fireworks at midnight, fired off four CBD buildings. Yagan Square, Northbridge Piazza, and James Street are recommended viewing locations. Additionally, the Freedom Time dance party at Supreme Court Gardens offers a lively way to dance into 2024.

Transperth Services and Other Locations

Transperth will provide additional free services to ensure easy transportation to and from the city. Trains and buses will operate on a Sunday timetable, with extra services on selected routes before and after midnight. Other locations in the Perth area, such as Mindarie Marina and Scarborough Beach, will also have their own fireworks displays.


The City of Perth is thrilled to host this special New Year’s Eve celebration, bringing people back to the CBD. With a variety of events and the biggest fireworks show yet, Perth promises an unforgettable night to welcome the new year. As Mayor Zempilas stated, “Our city has its crown back as the place to celebrate Christmas and the big holiday events.”
