NYE Goat Island
Time Out says
Bring the fam to this BYO NYE harbour island party
Just because you’ve got a brood of kidlets doesn’t mean you can’t party on an island this New Year’s Eve. The Goat Island event is being billed as a family-forward NYE celebration, meaning it’s more picnics and ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ at the fireworks than debauched dancefloor shenanigans.
It’s a self-service situation, so pack a sturdy basket of booze, food and outdoor lounging equipment to get you through from sundown till the sky lights up for 2020. Ferries depart for the island at 6.30pm and 7.15pm and are included in your ticket price. Which is about right, since it’s $216.75 per person for adults and $145.38 for kids (those under five come for free) just for those sought-after Sydney Harbour New Year’s Eve sightlines.
