So maybe you’re wondering how to get the most out of your New Year’s Eve celebrations? Perhaps you could try…

Midnight at the Oasis

Hosted in the gorgeous Royal Botanical Gardens, this is the ultimate VIP experience. Here you will be served a delicious 3 course, garden-side meal, with a front row seat for later on when the fireworks start. This year also falls upon the 200th anniversary of the Botanical Gardens, so expect a big one!

Lawn with a View

Looking to celebrate the New Year with your family? Lawn with a View could very well be the perfect option, with exclusive access to Bennelong Lawn. Enjoy a gourmet picnic hamper as you take in the scenery and celebrations, just don’t forget to bring your rug!

Taronga Zoo

It may not be the first spot that springs to mind when thinking of New Year festivities, but Sydney’s favourite zoo is host to some of the best celebration events in the city. You’ll have the choice of a 1920’s themed sit down 5-course meal or a slightly more unhinged ‘Speakeasy’ cocktail party. Both have spectacular views of the Harbour that will complete your evening.

Bradleys Head

Don’t feel like partying and just want to lay back and relax? Pop over to Bradleys Head, which is one of the most ideal spots for taking in the entirety of the Harbour. There’s live music to keep you entertained and food spots to keep your belly filled.

Harbour Islands

Alternatively you get right amongst the thick of the action on one of Sydney Harbour’s many islands. Fort Denison, Goat Island, Clark Island, Shark Island and Cockatoo Island are all hosting events on the night, giving you a variety of options to either relax or get your party on!
