NEW INFO - IMPORTANT - Road Closures & Visitor Permits

The City will implement a Traffic Management Plan which will involve the closure of selected roads between 1.30pm - 9.00pm for this event.

Road closures are necessary to better care for the residents of Shelley, So the City has implemented a Traffic Management Road Closure Plan which will involve the closure of selected roads from 1.30pm – 9.00pm.

Residents who live on the closed roads will need to show proof of residence to our Traffic Marshalls. Their visitors will need to show a numbered visitor permit and then display this on their dashboard.

This year there is no online resident’s visitor permit application. All residents in the road closures have been sent their visitor permits by mail. If they require more then must email events@canning.wa.gov.au and their details will be verified and passes will be emailed out digitally but must be printed.

⚠️ It is important that attendees avoid parking on residential verges, across driveways and on footpaths ⚠️

See below map for more information.

Roads affected by the Road Closure are as follows:

⚠️Barbican Street West - between Riverton Drive North & Modillian Avenue
⚠️Holmes Street - between Tribute Street West & Modillion Avenue
⚠️Beryl Avenue - between Barbican Street West & Corbel Street
⚠️Shelley Street- between Barbican Street West & Corbel Street
⚠️Throsby Street
⚠️Monota Avenue - between Barbican Street West & Tribute Street
⚠️Beatrice Avenue to Tribute Street West
⚠️Riverton Drive North between Doric Street and just before Corbel Street

NEW INFO - Parking & Shuttle Bus

There will be free onsite parking and free bike racks  - plus additional parking at Centenary Park with a two shuttle buses running between this park and the event site at Shelley every 10-15 minutes. However, availability is still limited so we encourage people to carpool, take public transport or walk or bike ride where feasible. Please note due to large masses of pedestrian traffic this car park will not be opened until at least 20 minutes after the end of the fireworks.

What is Provided At The Event?

The New Year’s Day Concert and Fireworks is the City’s largest community event. As with all large events there are some guidelines and recommendations on what you should and shouldn't bring to the event. This will ensure we make the event experience as comfortable as possible for everyone.

We have also put zoned areas in place to help with the overall event flow around the site. These are not too different to what we have done in previous years, plus we have provided a handy site map to help prepare you for your visit below.

What to Bring?

Feel free to bring a picnic and picnic rugs, chairs and small (3x3m) to medium (6x3m) suitably weighted gazebos, marquees or shade structures. Please note that there will be zones to allow all to see the stage and fireworks show. Gazebos will be directed towards the sides of the site, with low chairs and picnic rugs towards the front, plus a designated dance area in front of the stage. Please adhere to these zones.
