New to Bounty?
Memories, for young and old, are made on fireworks night. Find a family-friendly spot to watch from and enjoy!
Rugging up with your family and staring skyward as the colours collide is a moment of awe and wonder that can be relived, as local councils and club put on a show even better than the year before.
If you're thinking of taking your family out to see the night sky sparkle, these vantage spots are definitely worth checking out.
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, 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? Fear not, we've found some great spots for you and your family to take in the glowing night sky near you …
