The Australian town Cameron Corner – which celebrates New Year’s Eve THREE TIMES

The Australian town that celebrated New Year’s Eve THREE TIMES – even though it only has two permanent residents

  • One tiny Australian town has three times reason to celebrate on New Year’s Eve
  • Cameron Corner straddles three state’s borders – with three different time zones
  • Due to its unique position, the town will ring in the New Year three different times

New Year’s Eve is considered by many as one of the biggest party of the year – but one tiny Australian town has three times the reason to celebrate.  

Cameron Corner, which straddles the borders of Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia, is more than 1300km from Brisbane – the nearest capital city.  

Due to this unique position, the town is between the three state’s time zones, which are each 30 minutes behind one another.

This means each New Year’s Eve, locals and far flung party goers alike ring in the countdown with each state.

Typically the town only has two permanent residents, but on at year’s end, the crowds come flocking for a good time.   

For resident Fenn Miller, the celebrations are by far the most notable date on the region’s calendar. 

‘We go over to the corner post, we do the big happy new year in New South Wales – then we slide into South Australia and half an hour later we do it all again, and half again later we do it all again in Queensland,’ Mr Miller told Nine News.

‘It’s a bit of novelty, and a bit of fun.’  

However, Cameron Corner’s position also provides some components, unlikely to be found in any other outback town. 

Servicing its two residents, Cameron Corner has a Queensland liquor licence, a New South Wales postcode, and a South Australian telephone number.
