In order to get as close as possible to the dazzling shower of sparks and percussive night-time display, consider making a trip to the Sydney Harbour itself. Here, just about every restaurant and cruise ship will be offering a New Year's Eve special, and the best do fill up well in advance.
Some highlights include a special New Year's Eve Opera Gala at the Sydney Opera House with a specially timed interval so that you can enjoy the fireworks, a Sydney Harbour New Year's Eve Tall Ship Dinner Cruise where you'll have prime viewing of the fireworks after a wonderful BBQ meal or even a Sydney Harbour New Year's Eve Cocktail Cruise with drinks as the fireworks go off!
New Year's Eve at Sydney's Bradleys Head is the perfect way to ring in the new year with your loved ones. Spend a wonderful evening with your family in an alcohol-free, family-friendly setting with front-row views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge fireworks at 9pm and again at midnight.
