Mandurah’s Eastern Foreshore will come alive this New Year’s Eve with a range of entertainment, activities, two spectacular fireworks displays and free family fun for all ages.

The City of Mandurah’s community New Year’s Eve Celebrations will see more than 25,000 locals and visitors welcome the New Year and join the festivities in a safe, family friendly environment from 6pm to midnight.

The entertainment line-up includes a live DJ, disco lights, roving entertainment and amusement rides.

The kids will be kept entertained all night with the popular youth area with activities including amusements, totem tennis, WiiU games, air hockey, photo booth, oversized games, and more.

There will also be carnival and amusement rides for children and young adults, as well as a number of food vendors to keep the crowds satisfied on the night.

The first of the spectacular fireworks displays will light up the night sky over the beautiful Peel-Harvey Estuary at 9pm, but the fun doesn’t stop there. The entertainment, singing and dancing will continue until the second fireworks show at midnight.

A free shuttle bus will be doing the rounds from the Mandurah Transit Station to the Mandurah Visitor Centre from 6pm until 1am, making it easy for people to make their way to and from the foreshore every 20 minutes, a wheel chair accessible bus will be available every 40 minutes.

The event is a family-friendly, alcohol and smoke free event. Police officers will be taking a no tolerance approach to anyone consuming alcohol on the foreshore.

For the safety and enjoyment of all attendees at the celebrations, road and water closures will be in place. Mandurah Terrace between Cooper Street and Pinjarra Road will be closed during the event from 5.00pm on December 31 to 1.00am on January 1.
