If you are in Sydney for New Year’s Eve there are plenty of things to do to choose from. Most people, 1.5 million of them, make their way to the harbour foreshore to catch the spectacular fireworks displays that are on at 9.15pm and midnight, as well as the Harbour Light Parade, which goes from 9.15 to 11.30pm. Of course, the best place in the world to watch these from are from a boat of some kind and AnyBoat.com.au can help you to decide what is the right cruise for you on New Year’s Eve. Do you want to be onboard with lots of other people, or do you want a private party onboard a boat with just family and friends? Would you like a buffet or a fancy affair? A band or a DJ? The possibilities are endless, so let the helpful and friendly staff at AnyBoat.com.au help you to decide the right charter for you.
But if boats are not your thing and you don’t want to be standing around amongst crowds of people but you would like to see the fireworks, there are plenty of restaurants that overlook the harbour. It sure beats having to line up for hours to get a drink and then having to elbow your way to a decent view of harbour events. Some restaurants are high up and have an amazing view and they all have a special function on for New Year’s Eve. But make sure to book early to avoid disappointment as New Year’s Eve at Sydney Harbour is a much anticipated event on Sydney’s calendar and things get booked out very quickly.
For some people this can all be a little hum-drum, so how about joining the party at Luna Park? Still an amazing view of the harbour, Luna Park puts on a party that features local and international pop, R&B, retro, house, techno and electronic music DJs. The Harbour Party at Luna Park has fully licensed bars dotted around the park and all amenities and creature comforts on site, in the safety of the park’s precincts. The ticket also includes unlimited rides, so you can see in the New Year and watch the fireworks while being thrilled on one their rides, it doesn’t get much better than that!
There is still another option for those who don’t like crowds, loud music or boats, and who don’t want to go to a restaurant and then have to worry about getting home but do want to see the fireworks displays. You can always spend the night at a hotel in Sydney overlooking the harbour. That way you can have an intimate party with the important person/s in your life while still enjoying all that Sydney has to offer. You can leave the hotel and wander around Sydney enjoying the sight and sounds and then go back to your rooms and watch the fireworks from the comfort of your room. As you can imagine, these rooms are booked early so you have to be quick off the mark to score a room with a view.
And this is only the tip of the iceberg. Do your homework and find out what’s happening around town, you will be amazed and absolutely spoilt for choice!
