As the festive season approaches, the countdown to Sunshine Coast Council’s biggest end-of-year free event, New Year’s Eve Mooloolaba has begun.
Local families and visitors are invited to welcome in the New Year and enjoy the family-friendly entertainment at The Esplanade Mooloolaba from 4pm to midnight on Monday 31 December.
The New Year’s Eve Mooloolaba program boasts two stages of action-packed entertainment for the whole family.
And the entertainment doesn’t stop there. DJs will pump up the groove from 7.30pm to midnight on the Beach Stage. And if that’s not enough, there will be roving street entertainment, children’s activities, carnival rides and buskers that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Delicious food will be available from local vendors, restaurants and cafes on the Esplanade. To ring in the New Year, two spectacular fireworks displays will take place at 8.30pm and midnight.
New Year’s Eve Mooloolaba will take place in a relaxed, safe, security patrolled and fenced event zone with an expected crowd of 40,000 people.
Council works in partnership with a number of organisations including Queensland Police, SES, Queensland Fire and Rescue, Street Angels, Queensland Ambulance Services, to ensure public safety at this event.
A number of road closures will take place in the vicinity of the event site and will be minimised to limit disruptions to motorists. Visit council’s website for full details.
For the convenience of the community, extra free Sunbus services will operate throughout the afternoon and evening. Please be aware that intoxicated people or the carrying of alcohol will not be permitted on board.
New Year’s Eve Mooloolaba is a drug, alcohol and glass-free event and intoxicated people will not be permitted entry.
The celebrations at Mooloolaba are only one of a number of New Year’s celebrations planned across the Sunshine Coast. Kings Beach and the Noosa Marina at Tewantin will also host council supported events to mark the beginning of the New Year.
