Since time immemorial, there has always been that whinging sort who proudly declares New Year’s Eve the most overrated night of the year; yet it’s also those same folk who are least likely to put a moment’s thought into making sure their celebrations are worth remembering.

To ensure you roundly avoid that possibility, here are a few of the best events happening across Melbourne during New Year’s Eve — worthy places to farewell 2023 as the clock strikes midnight.

The Best New Year’s Eve 2023 Packages In Melbourne

Perrier-Jouët Party, Beverly Melbourne

New Years Eve Melbourne

Champagne is the best drink with which to bring in the new year, so the prospect of partying at Melbourne’s favourite new rooftop venue Beverly — a few bottles of Perrier-Jouët in-hand — sounds like a very good time indeed.

Located 24 levels above the humming cityscape of Chapel Street, NYE festivities here promise a carefully curated menu, and views of Melbourne that will become all-time-great with the addition of fireworks.

Time: From 6:00 PM
Address: Level 24, 627 Chapel Street, South Yarra
Price: Beverage packages from $225 per person
Dress Code/Other Details: Black Tie, bookings essential

QT Rooftop

New Years Eve Melbourne

As far as Melbourne CBD rooftops go, the eponymous Rooftop at QT has always been a winner. This year, the luxe Australian hotelier is hosting what promises to another rager.

At upwards of $300, tickets here aren’t exactly cheap, but you can expect free-flowing champagne; beer & wine; roaming canapés; an oyster station, and DJs all night long.

Time: From 6:30 PM
Address: Rooftop, 133 Russell Street, Melbourne
Price: $310

Johnny’s Green Room

Another rooftop bar, but this time in the slightly calmer confines of Carlton, the team at Johnny’s Green Room will square you away for NYE with a complimentary drink and several hours of cichetti (roughly translated from the Italian for “small snacks”).

With DJs booked and guaranteed seating for the first 200 guests, it’s shaping up to be a cracking way to bring in the New Year.

Time: From 7 PM
Address: Level 2, 293 Lygon Street, Carlton
Price: $60

Stella Restaurant and Bar

New Years Eve Melbourne

The folks at Stella Restaurant and Bar are hosting an exclusive New Year’s Eve Rooftop Party, complete with four hours of free-flowing beverages and canapés.

From bubbles on arrival to immaculate views out across the city, there’s plenty to love about what’s on offer here if Chapel Street is where you’re most comfortable welcoming in 2024.

Time: From 9 PM
Address: 427 Chapel St, South Yarra VIC 3141,
Price: $285

New Year’s Eve Dinner, Mr. Miyagi 

New Year’s Eve will be decidedly less fun if you don’t make it to midnight, so in that spirit, sharing a great meal with friends isn’t just tasty — it’s practically essential.

If you’re in the mood for a NYE nosh, Mr. Miyagi is hosting a dinner with a special ‘Feed Me’ menu, which also includes free-flowing drinks to ensure you’re plenty lubricated for the celebrations ahead.

Time: From 5:30 PM
Address: 99 Chapel St, Windsor
Price: $99 per person, with an optional $29 per person for a premium free-flowing beverage package.

Heaps Good Festival

New Years Eve Melbourne

It could well lead to you starting 2024 with a sore head, yet there’s something undeniably epic about a NYE music festival in Melbourne — especially since you won’t be sleeping in a tent.

Heaps Good Festival will be held at the legendary Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Headlining artists include Flume, Foals, SBTRKT, The Avalanches, Basement Jaxx, and more, so if you want to kick off the new year with a bang, nab your tickets before they sell out.

Time: From 11:30 AM
Address: Sidney Myer Music Bowl, King’s Domain, Linlithgow Avenue, Melbourne
Price: $190
Dress Code/Other Details: It’s a one day music festival – prepare accordingly.

Tulum Jungle Party, Arbory Afloat

New Years Eve Melbourne

Melburnians mightn’t get access to the jaw-dropping maritime spectacle that is Sydney Harbour, but if you’re keen on a waterfront way to celebrate NYE, then Arbory Afloat on the Yarra isn’t a bad option.

The team there will be hosting two parties inspired by the electric dance events held in on Mexico’s Yucatán coast. With plenty of eating, drinking, and grooves on-offer, a ‘Main Deck’ ticket will get you a four-hour package inclusive of canapés and house drinks.

Time: From 6 PM
Address: 2 Flinders Walk Melbourne, VIC 3000 Australia
Price: From $283
