New Year’s Eve fireworks to go ahead on the Gold Coast

TONIGHT’S New Year’s Eve fireworks are tipped to go ahead on the Gold Coast, despite a stormy start to the celebrations.

Five tonnes of explosives are primed to light up the sky over Surfers Paradise across three spectacular shows.

The beach will come alive at 8pm and again when the clock strikes midnight, while a special family show will be held in the riverside precinct at 10pm.


Although Surfers will host the Coast’s largest display, it wont be the only one, with fireworks being let off from Coolangatta to Ormeau.
