Gosford New Years Eve celebrations promise to be even bigger and better than ever this year when Gosford Race Club, the Central Coast Mariners and Gosford City Council combine to stage a program of events for the entire family.
The event starts with the races in the day:
- Gosford Race Club

- First Race 1pm
- Free entry for football ticket holders, Mariner pass holders and Gosford City rate payers.
A night at the Game:

Then the waterfront will come alive:
- Live band from 7:30pm – The Cover Up
- Entertainers, Food stalls, Rides
- Jumping castle children’s activities and roaming entertainment on Leagues Club field
- Fireworks spectacular over Brisbane Water from 9pm
Central Coast Highway and Dane Drive will be closed to traffic from 6:45 – 10:00pm from Racecourse Road through to Masons Parade (opposite Monty’s Seafood).
These roads will be on ‘restricted vehicle access only’ during these times for residents and those accessing the Settlers Arms bottle shop and adjacent businesses.
Traffic will be diverted along Racecourse Road into Mann Street. Variable message signs will be in operation.
Adcock Park - centrally located to both Gosford Races and Bluetongue Stadium and will be open from 9am to midnight. Lights will be switched off at this time.
Gosford Commuter carpark – a shuttle bus will be running from Georgina Terrace to Gosford Races from 11am.
Gosford Race Course - either in centre course or adjacent to the main turnstiles on Racecourse Rd. These car parks will be closed at 6pm so vehicles will need to be moved at the conclusion of the races or collected after 9am on New Years Day.
Note: For those attending both the races and the football, Adcock Park is the recommended parking option.
Gosford New Years Eve Festival is presented by Mars Food Australia and fired up by Gosford City Council, GBID, Central Coast Mariners, Gosford Racing, Central Coast Leagues Club, the Imperial Centre, Central Coast Express Advocate, NBN Central Coast, and Star 104.5.
