By Samsung Australia,  29.12.2015.


The Christmas rush has died down and now it’s about that time to ring in the New Year! How do you plan on celebrating New Year’s Eve and kick off 2016?

Quiet Night In

If you've got a trip or other plans early on New Years' Day, take it easy and ring in the New Year with a quiet night in with loved ones. After all, it's about being in the company of those that you enjoy the most that makes celebrating New Years Eve so special.

Beach Night

A New Years Eve night by the beach is a perfect way to relax and reminisce. There are plenty of beaches along the Aussie coast that could be the backdrop to your New Years Eve celebrations – the difficult decision will be choosing just one!

House Party

What better way to celebrate the New Year than with all your closest friends and family in your home? Keep the food and drinks flowing, the music pumping and have fun looking back on the year's best and worst moments! If you're lucky, you might just be able to catch a glimpse of the fireworks from your house.
