The City's main event is New Year on Royal, held in Royal Park: http://www.festivale.com.au/new-year-on-royal

Pubs like the Royal Oak, Manhattan Wine Bar, Mud at the Seaport and Sportsman's will have live noise of some sort. Can't help with the dancing, I'm afraid.

It never ceases to amaze me that Launceston is the only city that I have ever visited in Australia that charges for "Community Events" such as the New Years Eve celebrations in Royal Park and Festivale in City Park. The standard of which just cannot compare with Mainland activities.

Once you get through the gate you then pay through the nose for any food and refreshments that you would like. Having no concession rate for pensioners is rather distasteful....

Not everyone pays. The local city councillors get free entry to Festivale and get to eat a free meal while sitting ringside for the feature events.

I would suggest you try the casino as there are 3 dining options and bars and there will be LOTS of people there they usually have a band and fireworks.

Sorry Hawker69, don't quite understand the reason for that post?
