After the recent Airlie Beach foreshore upgrade, New Years 2020 is set to be a magnificent event!  Visitors will enjoy the new open space, complete with amphitheatre beach stairs and new parks and lawns. There will be early fireworks around 8pm, followed by a midnight firework extravaganza to bring in the New Year!

Bringing in the year 2020 will be an amazing experience in the Whitsundays, with so much to choose from. There will be a number of events organised at almost every venue onshore, offshore, and on the surrounding island resorts. We’ve got everything you need to start planning your New Year’s Eve celebrations, whether you’re a local or just visiting on holiday on the mainland or you have taken the plunge and booked your Bareboat charter with us!

If you are out on the water, why not visit Hamilton Island for New Years while you are on your Bareboat charter? Hamilton Marina Rates will apply, $300 for 24hrs and you will have full access to amenities and free courtesy buses that can get your around the island. Make sure book your marina birth early! There is so much to see and do on the Island. Hamilton Island will have their own events and activities during the day and night, including live music, street eats stalls and fireworks displays, so this could be an added bonus to your bare boating trip to celebrate and see in the New Year!

Christmas and New Years are considered the busiest season in the Whitsundays, and across Australia in general. The town, boats and islands will book out, especially on the actual holiday, so forward planning is key!
