New Year's Eve. As a kid, it meant staying up late and seeing fireworks. As a teenager, sneaking one of Dad's beers and gagging on how gross it tasted. As a young adult, a great excuse for a huge party.
Now as a grown up, there are loads of ways to celebrate the year gone by and look forward to the new one ahead.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE AT JACK RABBIT
Wine. Dine. Dance. Chill. No set menus. No set prices. Just Jack Rabbit deliciousness, a groovy DJ, views of fireworks around the bay and a great night of your own choosing!
Kick up your (stiletto) heels, even though they're half covered by bright coloured leg-warmers at the Vue Grand Rewind to the 80's.
EAT, DRINK AND CELEBRATE AT A LONG TABLE
Continuous European style food, cocktails and wine, live music - what a delicious way to finish this year and start the next one with Marty at Oakdene.
EAT AND DRINK AND LOOK AT THE VIEW
Five courses, drinks at the bar and a boogie to band The Bombastics? Sounds like an all-around great night at 360Q in Queenscliff.
MIDNIGHT ON THE MEZZANINE
Enjoy drinks and canapes from the Royal Geelong Yacht Club with amazing views of the fireworks.
PARTY ON THE PIER
This one's for the young 'uns with food and drinks and DJ Timmy Trumpet and front row for the fireworks show included in the ticket price at The Pier Geelong.
WATCH THE FIREWORKS
There will be fireworks at Geelong Watefront, Portarlington and Barwon Heads to ring in the new year. Grab a spot on the sand and start 2017 with a bang!
FUNKY SOUL DISCO
With a title like that, how could you not want to go?! Head to Queenscliff Brewhouse to funk up your soul with disco.
Enjoy the celebrations and rest your head at some of our favourite accommodation spots.
