If you’ve left it late to book your New Year’s Eve experience, try the Park Hyatt, one of Melbourne’s largest hotels.
Park Hyatt’s Radii restaurant offers a New Year’s Eve Melbourne Gala dinner, with matching wines. After dinner, venture up to your room to view the fireworks or down to Treasury Gardens. This is just one of the locations around Melbourne where fireworks will be set off from, giving you front row tickets.
If you do plan on staying in the hotel when the clock strikes midnight, make sure you’ve booked a Terrace Suite. These rooms are luxe, to say the least. Think Italian marble bathrooms, and separate bedroom and living areas, opening out onto a large terrace.
