Sydney NYE: Unique Venues to Consider While Making Plans


What's the first thing that comes into your mind when you think of Sydney and New Year's Eve fests? Let me guess… is it the fireworks displays, parties bringing in the new year and unlimited fun? Am I a mind reader? Naah… Popular things to do on New Year’s eve can be pretty predictable, but Sydney is one city that never fails to surprise, with unique experiences for all and sundry. Let me give you a sneak peek into some of the best Sydney venues where you are promised the absolute best NYE experience.  

Sydney Harbour

New Year cruises on Sydney Harbour are well-known for their extravagant celebrations year after year. The spectacular midnight fireworks displays are probably the most looked forward to the attraction of the evening. Be it an authentic paddlewheeler with old-world charm, a multi-million dollar modern catamaran, or a premium glass boat with cutting-edge nautical design, you are promised the absolute best NYE experience onboard. Take in brilliant views of the amazing Sydney Harbour sensations like Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and Luna Park along the way and click some photos of the stunning pyrotechnic projections that are displayed. 

There are no better vantage points from where you can click your best photographs that can ultimately set your Instagram feed on fire! Click some of your best shots against this picture-perfect background and share them on social media. Most of the New Year’s Eve cruises combine NYE harbour events with a high-end restaurant-quality dining experience. With deluxe seafood and meat inspired 5-course dinner menu along with the finest Australian house spirits, wines, beers, and soft drinks, as well as live onboard entertainment, these cruises offer the ultimate NYE packages. 

Of course, the onboard festivities and entertainment may differ according to the vessel. But all of them guarantee prime views of the fireworks display and the harbour with amazing food and live entertainment. What you should remember is the fact that you can enjoy your cruise, drinks, dinner, and entertainment with an all-inclusive package.

Blues Point Reserve

Check out Blues Point Reserve, one of the most popular NYE destinations in Sydney and I assure you, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why it is so famous. Located on the water’s edge, it is right at the heart of the action. The Blues Point Reserve offers spectacular views of the NYE fireworks display, but unlike Sydney Harbour, it is a more closed and private environment. It's a venue that gets full up in no time, so if you can get in there early, well and good! If you fancy a delicious Aussie dinner and drinks to go with your best NYE sightseeing experience, well… there are cafes and restaurants nearby from where you can purchase food and drinks until midnight.

Observatory Hill Park

Observatory Hill Park is simply a green oasis in the middle of the city and if you have never been to this lovely place before, then you should check this out for a truly amazing NYE experience this time. It’s an easy walk from Wynyard stations and Circular Quay and it is the best Sydney vantage point where you can get a fantastic view of the harbour and the extravagant NYE celebrations getting bigger and bolder every year!
