New Year’s Eve Sydney is a must do, must see, must be there event. Importantly, it should be one of those bucket list items! Get ready to celebrate NYE 2019 and welcome in 2020. With the canvas of the waters of the Sydney Harbour and all its magnificent surrounds the Sydney NYE is recognised as one of the very special New Year’s Eve events world wide. And we say Sydney New Year is one of the Eight NYE Wonders of the World.
Sydney attracts so many international visitors to Australia for the 31st December fireworks 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 and around Sydney Harbour and there are so many public 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 the ships parade in the Harbour of Lights.
You have to go to Sydney New Year’s Eve. Now the question becomes, “Where to go for NYE?”. We believe the major target market demographic for the New Year’s Eve experience is a little different than that of other Australian NYE hot spots. All this entertainment that is put on by the City and is in the centre of everything, targets those aged from 8 to 100. As an example we have found simply there will be more family focused NYE package offers. Also, there will be more spectacular NYE dining and NYE cruise opportunities than other cities. And generally if they are situated on the Harbour then the viewing will be a spectacle.

More Things to Do for Sydney New Year’s Eve
One trick to Sydney is that it is going to be busy on NYE, so plan to stay near the event where you are celebrating as travelling to and from could spoil all the fireworks fun.
So there is New Year’s Parties targeting 18 to 28 year old’s but there are also be a more diverse range for everyone else. Restaurants, parties at hotels and clubs and pubs, and cruises options. Hence a fabulous array of New Year’s Eve Sydney 2019 events for all to see in the new year of 2020 in style.
Sydney’s NYE Fireworks
There are three major Sydney light displays that you need to see. So making sure your timing is scheduled and that you have your seat sorted and drink in hand! It’s all going to be very spectacular and Sydney is ready!
At 9pm is the New Year’s Eve family fireworks display. This lasts about 8 to 10 minutes and will have the young and old ones going wow! Then straight after that is the Parade of Lights where boats are like a cavalcade of floats under the Bridge with spectacular illuminating lights. If you are on the right boat you too can be party of NYE Harbour style!
Then at midnight on the last day of the year, being 31st December, Australia’s great city sees out the old year and welcomes in the new one with around 12 minutes of incredible and spectacular fireworks pyrotechnics. These fireworks have all the crowd dazzling with smiles and surprise. That is of course if you are watching and not having a quick kiss to see out the year! Happy New Year!
Do you need to party on or recover on New Year’s Day
After NYE is over the next day is the first of January 2020. Yes that is New Year’s Day! You may need to recover after a spectacular New Year’s Eve Harbour City style. Or it may be that you and your friends may wish to continue to celebrate. We have ideas on and off the water. For all the good oil on recovery or action for the 1st January check out what’s on New Year’s Day Sydney.
