Watch an Amazing Fireworks Display
You can watch firework displays at several locations near Perth. The top picks are Northbridge, Crown Perth, and Rottnest Island.

If you’re near the Swan River, two of the biggest hotels will light up right before midnight. But if you’re inclined towards watching an early show, Rottnest Island is your ideal destination. Several ferries will take you across and get you back to bed before midnight.
