Tropical FruitsIf the glitz and glamour of Sydney are all just a bit too much for you on New Year’s Eve, look no further than the beautiful Northern Rivers region of New South Wales! This year, why not tempt your palette with some Tropical Fruits. Tropical Fruits, the long running local LGBTI community organisation, is hosting their own NYE party and you’re all invited.

Set in Lismore, this 4-day experience will have you dancing the night away, lounging by the water during the day and enjoying the scenery of some of the most beautiful parts of Australia. It truly is the perfect experience for someone who wants to welcome the new year uniquely.
