New Year’s Eve Sydney

New Year's Eve Sydney Fireworks
NYE Fireworks in Sydney

New Year’s Eve Sydney is a must do, must see, must be there event. It should be one of those bucket list items! Get ready to celebrate NYE 2018 and welcome in 2019. With the canvas of the waters of the Sydney Harbour and all it’s 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.

The city attracts so many international visitors 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 the town! 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 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.

Sure there will be New Year’s 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 New Year’s Eve Sydney 2018 events for all to see in the new year of 2019 in style.

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 traveling to and from could spoil all the fireworks fun.

Sydney’s NYE Fireworks

New Year's Eve Sydney FireworksThere 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!
