The Zoo’s New Year’s Eve countdown is scheduled for the very sensible time of 8:00pm so you can get the little ones to bed or head to an evening event elsewhere in the city. Tickets are on sale now at $35 per person with free entry for kids under two years of age
Cold Chisel At Fremantle Park
Few bands can rival Cold Chisel as the sound of Australian summer. Khe Sanh, Flame Trees, Cheap Wine, Choir Girl, Forever Now – for decades these songs have echoed across our backyards, beaches, pubs and bars, earning the band countless accolades including an induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame. Cold Chisel’s unique blend of rock and blues led to a near-fanatical following in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, with their disbanding in ’83 doing little to quell the widespread love for their iconic tracks. Luckily for us, Cold Chisel have reunited once again and will head to Fremantle Park this New Year’s Eve to kick off their 2020 Blood Moon Tour with support from Birds of Tokyo, Jebediah, Carla Geneve, Gyroscope and The Southern River Band. What’s more, the band is likely to perform all-new music alongside its classic hits: check out the new single “Getting the Band Back Together” from their upcoming album Blood Moon

Boasting the vibe of a remote island getaway without the “remote” caveat, it’s no surprise Rottnest Island is one of Western Australia’s leading attractions and a popular hotspot for New Year’s Eve. Its location just 19 kilometres from the mainland means it’s a comfortable ferry ride from Fremantle and Perth, making it easy to pop over for an unforgettable day trip. You can head over in the evening, but why not leave in the morning and make a day of it? The island’s idyllic climate, world-class beaches and abundance of flora and fauna make it the perfect place to explore before putting on your dancing shoes for the evening festivities.
