Most of us like to go to a party of some description on New Year’s Eve but not many of us like to actually hold the party at our own house so it can be hard to find a good one to go to. But a great party idea is to join one of the many parties that are held on boats all over Sydney Harbour.
Contact AnyBoat.com.au and they will help you to find the sea-faring New Year’s Eve party that you’re looking for. The on-board parties have bands, DJs, kareoke and lots of other entertainment and come in a huge variety of sizes, from small, intimate dos to big bashes with loads of people. You will have the best view of the fireworks spectacular in Sydney and, if you’re lucky, your boat could even be part of the Harbour of Light Parade. AnyBoat.com.au knows them all and will find the boat to suit your party ideals.
You can also charter a boat to hold your own private party on the harbour and it doesn’t matter how many people your party consists of, AnyBoat has the boat for you.
But there are public parties that you can go to on shore. Wherever you live, around the CBD there are always parties to be found on New Year’s Eve, usually with great bands or DJs, perfect for some wild dancing to see out the old year.
If you enjoy a bit of a punt, the Casino always has great entertainment, and New Year’s Eve is no exception. Usually on New Year’s Eve they have some ultra-special entertainment with a variety of gigs happening at the same time for you to choose from. You can also book a room so that when the partying is over you don’t have to worry about getting home, just a short stagger to your room. Make sure to phone them and find out what they have on offer for New Year’s Eve.
If you like to party outdoors, and in December the Sydney weather is perfect so it’s a viable option, SHORE THING is held on Bondi Beach and will feature the Chemical Brothers, a British electronic music duo composed of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons. Also playing will be Knife Party, Fedde le Grand and a selection of locals to keep the party going. There will also be fireworks and a party-friendly vibe.
Or there’s the HARBOUR PARTY at Luna Park, with a feast of talent that includes the best of local and international pop, R&B as well as retro, house, techno and electronic music. This year’s line-up includes DJs, Ricki Lee, Marvin Priest, The Ashton Shuffle, Luciana, Ivan Gough and with more to be announced. The best thing about partying at Luna Park is that you have all amenities close at hand. There are also fully licensed bars dotted throughout the park and you will have one of the best views in town of the fireworks displays and the Harbour of Light Parade. But this party is for adults over 18 only.
For those who can afford it, the Sydney Opera House also holds a party. There are spectacular views of the harbour with great party music so that you can dance the night away. This year’s headliners are Goldfish, Jon Sa, Trinxa, Dolso and DJs from Ibiza, and your dinner will be cooked by Matt Moran. Then, at the end of the night there is a chartered boat to avoid the crowds when you leave.
These are just a few party suggestions, but there are many more. Phone around so that you are organised when New Year’s Eve comes around to save disappointment.
