As the year draws to a close, the Riverina is gearing up for a night of joyous festivities and celebration.

There’s something for everyone, from enchanting fireworks displays to lively street parties and rooftop revelries. Here’s a sneak peek of the festivities.

You can ring in the new year in the Riverina with family and friends and enjoy the dazzling fireworks display at Lake Albert.

To enjoy live music and welcome 2024, head to Wagga Wagga Boat Club or Leeton Soldiers Club, where you can watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks on a giant five-metre screen.

If you’re looking to party your heart out, join the Coolamon NYE street party or 90s-themed party in Albury.
