    Wherever you are in Sydney, the New Year is sure to be brought in with a bang, by fireworks, of course. Whether you are one of the many who venture out to see the spectacular tradition of the firework display on and around the Harbour or someone who prefers to spend the New Years Eve at a party, Sydney has it all. Wherever you plan on going, be sure to allow enough travel time to and from events.


    Sydney Harbour Fireworks

    Attracting more than 1.6 million people every year, the annual Sydney New Years Eve firework display provides something for everyone from families with children to those looking to celebrate with champagne. Shine, is the 2013 theme, and the fireworks are sure to shine brightly! Be sure to arrive early to secure a good viewing position.


    Darling Harbour

    Bands will be performing live music; there will be family friendly entertainment like fire juggling and twirling along with Chinese Lion Dancers. A dynamic Pyro light show will also be on display. The celebration at Darling Harbour is  a glass free zone and starting from 7:30pm, it is perfect for everyone.


    Harbour Party – Luna Park

    Starring acts like DJ Havana Brown, Ian Carey and 2012 X Factor winner Samantha Jade, over 18s can bring in the New Year with great music, amazing rides and an excellent view of the famous firework display on and around the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.


    Parramatta River

    For a more family friendly option, Parramatta City Council provides early entertainment with action packed Jet Ski performances along the river as well as street performers and bands. There are also rides available for all ages and food stalls ensuring no one goes hungry. Fireworks and their spectacular reflection in the river, at 9:30 will conclude the event.


    Shore Thing – Bondi Beach

    International DJ Skrillex is bringing his Spaceship stage show to Australian shores at Bondi Beach for the first time on New Years Eve. If you are over 18 be sure to party with acts like Skrillex, Jack Beats, What So Not and more across the stretch of sand under the stars and fireworks.


    NYE Festival at Wet n Wild Sydney

    Avoid the crowds in the city and celebrate the New Year at Sydney’s biggest and best water theme park with artists like Faydee, Yolanda Be Cool, Tigerlily, Will Sparks and more. Enjoy rides and perhaps a swim in the largest Australian man made beach. The park will be colourfully lit up as everyone over the age of 16 dances the night away.
