New Year's celebrations in Tweed safe and successful
REVELLERS gathered in their thousands throughout the Tweed and Coolangatta to ring in the New Year last night.
Police were impressed with the crowd's behaviour, with arrests down and a friendly atmosphere hanging over the celebrations.
As always, the fireworks scattered across the shire were a highlight, with families gathering at early displays before the main light show at midnight.
Most vantage points for the Jack Evans Boat Harbour and Coolangatta displays were packed full of spectators, with a relaxed, family friendly mood ensuring smiles all round.
As always, local venues were packed with excited patrons, the large majority respecting their fellow drinkers and enjoying the night with friends.
In a late Christmas present for health care workers, emergency room admissions were lower than previous years.
Overall, New Year's Eve on the Tweed was largely safe, successful and a whole lot of fun.
