Event Details

There’s no better place to spend the last day of the year than Rottnest Island!

Spend a relaxing day soaking up the sun and exploring the pristine beauty of the Island followed by an afternoon of fun that the whole family will love.

With celebrations spaced out throughout the Settlement precinct, you can safely ring in the New Year while keeping the whole family entertained.

From 5pm kids can show off their creative skills and build the Island’s best sandcastle or enjoy some beach soccer and giant games. Little and not-so-little kids can have a dance party in the Silent Disco, or jump into the Photo Booth for a celebratory selfie.

Then at 9pm, look skywards towards Thomson Bay for a spectacular fireworks display to send off 2020 and welcome in 2021.

With late evening ferry departures back to Fremantle and Hillarys, you’ll be able to enjoy all the action, all day before heading home.
