Melbourne sure knows how to put on a fireworks show and a party! If you're looking for a great, family-friendly vantage spot to take in the Melbourne night sky-show, look no further - we have found some super spots for you.
The key to a successful family night out to watch fireworks, particularly on the days of big events like Australia Day and New Year's Eve, is planning.
It's likely that there will be thousands of families just like you with the same idea, so it makes sense to know where you are headed. Consider things like access points, food, toilets, transport etc and choose the vantage point that best suits your family's needs.
Often there many road closures that will impact your journey, and very limited parking.
Most councils will strongly recommend that you leave your car at home and take advantage of public transport. In most cases it will be free on the night of big planned events.
However, it pays to be aware of delays to your trip home and make sure that you have what you need to make the wait comfortable with kids.
So, where are the best vantage spots to catch the fireworks in Melbourne? Fear not, we've found some great spots for you and your family to take in the glowing night sky ...
