Revellers across Queensland were well behaved as the state welcomed 2019.

Whilst police across Queensland reported a busy night as Queenslanders farwelled one year and welcomed another, revellers at major events throughout the state were mostly well behaved.

There were few policing incidents in the Central Police Region which incorporates Mackay, Capricornia, Wide Bay Burnett and the Sunshine Coast policing districts.

Large crowds gathered at numerous vantage points across the region to watch midnight fireworks and welcome in the new year.

Most policing incidents were minor in nature and related to anti-social behaviour and alcohol related incidents.

Six banning notices were issued, four people charged with public nuisance, one person for obstructing police and one liquor offence notice was issued.

Capricornia District

Police were pleased with crowd behaviour in public celebratory sites across the district. One private party however in Brosnan Crescent, Parkhurst was declared an 'out of control party' event with several arrests made for public nuisance, assault and obstruct police.

Across the district 12 drivers were arrested for drink driving and three tested positive to roadside drug tests. Five people were charged with public nuisance and three for obstruct police.

Wide Bay Burnett District

Again, crowds were well behaved and largest numbers were seen in areas with fireworks, as well as licensed venues in city / town CBDs.

Most of those detected committing offences were leaving licensed venues.

Across the district nine drink drivers were arrested with the highest reading 0.240% at Maryborough. Twelve people were charged with public nuisance, six obstruct police and six liquor offences notices were issued, along with three banning notices.
