Ring in the New Year 2013 in the state of Queensland

The second largest administrative division by area in Australia, Queensland is located in the northeast of the continent. The main attraction for most tourists in the state is the Great Barrier Reef, one of the best known and most beautiful diving areas in the world. With its impressive diversity of species and an overall length of 2,000 kilometers, it is no surprise that some people even call it the Eighth Wonder of the World. With its breathtaking rainforests   and picturesque golden sandy beaches, Queensland – also known as the “Sunshine State”, has what tourists are looking for. New Year’s Eve 2013 in the state of Queensland has something on offer for everyone.

Start the New Year at the parks of South Bank with a bang and enjoy live music, a dance party for all age groups, free movies, an amusement park and two spectacular fireworks displays. Begin the ceremony in the afternoon with the relaxed rhythms of DJs at Streets Beach, or grab a good seat early to admire the fireworks along the Clem Jones Promenade. You can experience live music on stages along the Stanley Street or a dance party at the Suncorp Piazza. The Cultural Forecourt offers rides, candy, contests for children's films and fun for the whole family. Feel how at midnight the mood of the crowd rises when the fireworks lit up the sky over the Brisbane River. As the old year slips away celebrate with the Queensland Pops Orchestra and their special guests who will sing music from around the world. They will take you on a wonderful musical journey to places near and far. The fireworks display in Foreshore, a surfer’s paradise, at midnight promises to be a spectacle and claims to be one of the largest in Queensland.
