NYE Fireworks in Sydney

New Years Eve in Sydney!  That pretty much says it all.  It’s a must do, must see, must be there event.  The world already recognises Sydney as one of the very special New Year’s Eve events world wide.  The city of Sydney attracts so many international visitors for the 31st December fireworks NYE spectacular that the Sydney City Council has a whole department specialising on the event.  It’s a tourism bonanza for the commerce of Sydney!

There is good reason for that Sydney windfall …  Because it has been crafted into one of the best NYE Fireworks display in the world.  Part of that reason is because the fireworks and public entertainment are held over Sydney Harbour and there are so many viewing points.  Whether you are up high, or in a boat on the harbour or watching from one of the many restaurants and clubs overlooking the Harbour, you should be able to view the midnight fireworks.  And you have to make sure you see ships parade in the Harbour of Lights.

So, you have to go to Sydney New Year’s Eve.  Now the question becomes, “Where to go in Sydney for NYE?”.   We believe the major target market demographic for Sydney NYE is a little different than that of other Australian NYE hotspots.  All this entertainment that is put on by the City and is in the centre of everything targets those aged from 8 to 80.  As an example we have found simply there will be more family focused NYE package offers.  Also,  in Sydney there will be more NYE dining and NYE cruise opportunities than other cities.

Sure there will be New Years Parties targeting 18 to 28 year old’s but there will also be a more diverse range for everyone else.  Hence a fabulous array of events for all.

One trick to Sydney is that it will be busy on NYE, so plan to stay near the event where you are celebrating as traveling to and from could spoil all the fireworks fun.
