We’ve got a great selection of events for you to consider this New Year’s Eve, so now all you have to do, is decide which event and what to wear (but we’ve got you covered with that too!)

Gosford Fireworks

Hunter Events Group is thrilled to announce its partnership with Central Coast Council to revive the highly anticipated New Year’s Eve Event in Gosford this year. Scheduled for December 31st at Leagues Club Park, this free community gathering coincides with the Central Coast Mariners facing off against Perth Glory at Industree Group Stadium on the same night.

Residents and visitors can anticipate a joyous and family-friendly celebration in one of the region’s most picturesque and child-friendly locations. Festivities kick off at 5 pm, offering a diverse array of street food, local market stalls, live music for enthusiastic dancers, and engaging kids’ entertainment.

As the clock approaches 9 pm, spectators are encouraged to gather and prepare for a spectacular firework display set to illuminate the night sky over Brisbane Water, coinciding with the conclusion of the Mariners’ game. The event promises a memorable evening for all, combining the thrill of a sporting spectacle with the enchantment of a community celebration. Join us for a New Year’s Eve filled with laughter, joy, and the spirit of togetherness in the heart of Gosford.
