Greet the New Year 2013 in the Australian Capital Territory

Formerly known as Federal Capital Territory, the Australian Capital Territory, frequently abbreviated ACT and located within New South Wales in South East Australia, is the capital territory and smallest political entity of the Commonwealth of Australia. The national parliament and other federal institutions, embassies, galleries and museums attract thousands of tourists each year. If you want a truly magical and unforgettable New Year’s Eve 2013 there isn't anywhere more wonderful and beautiful than the Australian Capital Territory.

Events in Australia's Capital Territory include a concert, a dance party with live DJs and fireworks over Lake Burley Griffin. Visit the free, family-friendly concert in Civic Square, where many Australian musicians usher in the festivities. Later at night it goes to the “Bass in the Place” Dance Party at Commonwealth Place, where the celebrations get a little wilder. From both places you can enjoy a magnificent view of the gigantic, noisy and spectacular fireworks display, which takes place at 9 p.m. and then starts again at midnight. You can also picnic on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin while watching fireworks shoot into the air at four places on the City Hill. If you are looking for a truly wonderful experience then spend New Year's Eve 2013 in Australia's Capital Territory.
