Happy New Year!

The countdown is on and Off The Leash has the low down on ways to spend New Year's Eve in the Top End.


If fine dining with bubbles, a flutter in the casino and a cracking fireworks display sounds like your way to bring in the New Year, SKYCITY Darwin has them in spades. Literally.

Across an array of restaurants, there’s something to suit every budget with a range of set menus ranging from $65 to $165 for an extravagant special four course set menu, with champagne on arrival and the best seats in the house for the midnight fireworks display. For those wanting to carve up the dance floor, head to Sandbar or ACES to see LJ Sennett & The Governors bring in the countdown.
