Spectacular NYE Fireworks Show on Sydney HarbourThe Sydney NYE experience is heralded as one of the best New Year’s Eve celebrations in the world. Sydney’s NYE party is held on and around the iconic Sydney Harbour. The Sydney Harbour Bridge (or coat hanger) is a key centre attraction for the Sydney fireworks display. Sydney puts on two New Year fireworks displays plus the Parade of Lights. What is there to do in Sydney for New Years Eve?

Some of these NYE events will be a priority for many people and are in demand very early. Some events are on the boats on the water while others are around the Harbour in Sydney venues. Where ever you are in Sydney it’s sure to be fun!
