Find a spot on Maitland’s Levee riverside and settle in for a spectacular fireworks display as Council bids farewell to 2022 during its annual, all ages New Year’s Eve festivities , proudly presented by PRD Hunter Valley.


From 5.00pm on Saturday 31 December, enjoy a raft of family friendly activities including amusement rides, games, a photo booth, kid’s disco, arts and crafts, and an interactive ‘doodle bubble’ experience, with activities spread across both sides of the river, at RH Taylor Reserve in Lorn and The Levee’s Riverside car park.

Newcastle based retro party band The Cassettes will be blasting a set of popular 80s classics from the riverside main stage before the 9.00pm fireworks display brings the evening to a rousing finish. Maitland City Council Team Leader Events Kara Stonestreet says, ‘Council’s New Year’s Eve fireworks are something that locals return to year after year.’

‘We can’t wait to ring in the new year and look forward to welcoming thousands of local families and friends to the heart of Maitland to end 2022 on a high note.’

‘We recommend getting there early to carve out a spot on the riverbank, which will be the best spot to take in the fireworks.’

There will be food and drink options aplenty, with a fleet of food trucks and vendors offering everything from gozleme and gelato to waffles and bratwurst.

Our New Year’s Eve festivities are once again proudly presented by long term partner PRD Hunter Valley. PRD Hunter Valley Principal Luke Anderson says the firm is ‘proud to lend its support to the event once again, having served as a major sponsor for the past seven years’.
