IF YOU were looking for free family activities and fireworks in Central Queensland tonight, forget it.
Readers have commented online in the past 24 hours about the lack of free fireworks/family activities among the New Years events listings.
They've even sent in SMSs to the Editor: How come Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Bundaberg, Sunshine Coast and of course Brisbane can have a free family New Years Eve celebrations but the RRC has nothing. Why is the RRC so against getting people together to celebrate apart from going to bars. Time to get a new council and bring back some pride and celebrations for all to enjoy. CJ Rton
On The Bulletin's Facebook page, Kellie Renes posted "Wow all the celebrations here are for the drunks there is nothing in Rocky for family's to sit n watch the new year roll in with fireworks or something ..."
Trish Kelly said there is not really any family friendly activities in Rocky with fireworks, is there?
Julieann Cubit asked if there was anything that doesn't involve alcohol and kids can attend?
To which Stephanie Jameson replied "PCYC carnival runs til 930pm".
While the PCYC Carnival is free entry, rides are $5 each, or $25 for an armband to go on as many rides as you can in one night. There are also no fireworks planned at the carnival.
Meanwhile, the Mercure Capricorn Resort is having fireworks and family activities, but at a cost.
Poolside tickets for the New Years party at the resort are $60 per adult, $40 per teen (14-17), $25 for children aged 4-12 and children under three are complimentary.
The CQ News reports there are no fireworks activities planned in its region tonight, and The Gladstone Observer have also reported no family fireworks events planned in the port city tonight.
