In Sydney, the celebrations are some of the biggest in the world with hundreds of thousands of people coming together to celebrate the coming of the New Year; with live entertainment, great music and a massive fireworks display.

New Year’s Eve in Sydney is one of the most anticipated celebrations of the year. As it is summertime in Sydney and most people are able to enjoy the public holiday the next day, many flock to the city for this massive celebration.

There are many live shows scheduled throughout the city, but the fireworks display on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is by far the biggest draws card of the NYE event.

The City of Sydney manages 6 locations around the harbour, with these being Observatory Hill, Beare Park, Bicentennial Park, Giba Park, Pirrama Park, and Embarkation Point. Tickets to these vantage points are free and are available from Monday 8 November.

The vantage points listed above will open at 7pm on the night, and you’ll need to arrive by 10.30pm. Pass-outs will be allowed at the locations listed above. Water refill stations and toilets are available, but there will be no food for sale at the venues above. So do consider visiting a local restaurant or café before attending –  you can also bring your own picnic. Please ensure you’re familiar with what you can and can’t bring into vantage points.

You’re encouraged to be double vaccinated if attending the vantage points listed above. While Covid-19 vaccination requirements are not specified in the terms and conditions for sites managed by the City of Sydney, they may need to make changes to reflect the latest public health updates or best practice.

Many vantage points will operate differently to previous years. It’s likely that opening times, services available within the venue and pass-out rules at vantage points will be different this year. Please ensure you’re familiar with what you can and can’t do and the terms and conditions of entry for your vantage point.
