Sydney's spectacular NYE fireworks display is renowned around the world, with millions tuning in to watch our stunning harbour ablaze to ring in the New Year. But to really be part of this magnificent celebration, you’ll want to be down at the Quay or high above the city. Do it in style by booking a space on the dancefloor, at the bar or dining table for these exclusive New Year’s Eve events. Here, the Champagne is flowing, the music is pumping and the fireworks seem like they’re almost close enough to touch.
