Road closures are required and have to be implemented in the interest of public safety, which therefore leaves some parking restrictions.  We would like to remind you that traffic will be busy during your visit to Foreshore Fireworks, therefore, we strongly recommend you allow extra time when planning your trip to the event.

Remember that sometimes little ears can be sensitive to fireworks! We recommend investing in some child-friendly headphones or some ear muffs to make the night more enjoyable for tiny tots. You’ll also definitely need to stock up on things like insect spray and be aware that, even in the fading light, it’s well worth your while to apply sunscreen to yourself and your little people.
