It’s almost time to catch 2022 on the flip side, and what a better way to see the year out than with a bang, right? They’re audacious, loud, and there’s no holding them back – the 2023 mood for sure. Whether you’re after a wholesome display by the beach or the whole kit and kaboodle with live entertainment and food trucks, there’s a spot for you to see the best New Year’s fireworks in Adelaide – take a look.
Brought to us by the team behind Gluttony, the Murlawirrapurka/Rymill Park in Adelaide’s East End will be host to the family-friendly event, Light Up 2022 from 6pm until 1am. As well as the fireworks, there’ll be live music, a spread of entertainment across multiple stages, interactive activities, and South Australia’s most sought-after food trucks, vendors and pop-up bars.
Catch the city fireworks with two displays – one for the early birds at 9:30pm and again at midnight to start 2023 with a bang. Although Light Up 2022 is a free event, it is indeed ticketed for a limited capacity.

2. New Year’s Eve At The Bay
If the seaside is your thing, then a line-up of reflecting fireworks on the ocean’s surface probably can’t be beaten. The annual Glenelg fireworks will light up the sky at 9:30pm for the early birds, and again at the stroke of midnight to truly reel in the New Year in Adelaide.
There’ll be a bunch of free, family-friendly entertainment on the cards which will kick off at 7pm right on the sands of Glenelg beach. And if you’re looking for a fabulous New Year’s Eve event to attend in Glenelg; the Stamford Grand is hosting their annual Masquerade Gala with great views of the fireworks and all.
