We are MORE than ready to say goodbye to 2020. With flexible booking options and plenty of fireworks to look forward to, book with confidence and let's ring in 2021!
The eyes of the world are fixed on the Harbour City every December 31 when Sydney becomes the first major city on earth to enter the New Year… and those onlookers sure get something to stare at. More than $7 million worth of fireworks illuminate Sydney Harbour at 9pm and midnight, and every inch of spare turf around the water is occupied by more than one million admirers filling both ticketed and non-ticketed vantage points.
The NSW Government is running the show this year, likely only with ticketed events available with smaller numbers. Without the crush of tourists, this year is definitely the time to see the event in-person - just keep your eyes peeled for more updates!
This years NYE celebrations will certainly look different in Melbs. The City of Melbourne and Victorian State Government haven't released any details on what's happening and where, but as long as restrictions keep easing, you can expect a celebration that we won't forget any time soon..

Western Australia is three hours behind the East Coast, so Perth arrives fashionably late to the New Year’s party. The Swan River hosts the city’s biggest fireworks display – head to King’s Park for a lofty vantage point of the pyrotechnics, or book a ticket on a cruise for a front-row seat. We're still waiting to see if nightlife hub Northbridge will throw its annual epic street party, so stay tuned!

South Bank is the hub of Brisbane’s bash with barges and pontoons firing fireworks from the river, meaning there’s great viewing from anywhere along the Clem Jones Promenade. There are 8.30pm and midnight pyro shows at South Bank and the Portside Wharf in Hamilton, as well as a 12 o’clock display at Eagle Street Pier. Kangaroo Point is a popular vantage point in the city, while Mount Coot-tha offers a lofty view of Bris Vegas from afar.
