The nearest train station to the markets is Kippa Ring. 


Limited parking is available in the surrounding streets to Foreshore Fireworks. You are advised to arrive early & be mindful of local residents when parking. Our advice is to utilise public transport (www.translink.com.au).

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.

  1. Hello. Will there also be midnight fireworks aswell or just the kiddies one. Trying to find somewhere where there’s midnight ones around the Penninsula.

  2. As northsiders we are so excited to know we have family friendly fireworks coming to Redcliffe. 830 is a perfect time for us too. It means we can eat dinner and bath, go to the fireworks and put our daughter to bed promptly after all without fighting the city crowds.

  3. See you on the night Crys!

    Thanks Shane and Deb. We love your businesses too and we’re so happy to be able to get you results. I am stepping it up a LOT in 2016 – there’s MASSIVE plans on the table so we’ll be sending you even more customers next year. So excited. Decided to start 2016 with a bang. What better way than Fireworks….

  4. So this is the big surprise Janine! Congratulations. And we’re so excited to be advertising our own events with your amazing magazine in 2016! I have no doubt this will be a BLAZING success.

  5. This is a great initiative. Thanks so much to Families Magazine for getting behind the Peninsula. We love your magazine – peninsula people, pick up a copy at the schools and libraries. Support business that supports our community.
