To see the Sydney fireworks on New Year’s Eve, both tourists and locals alike will experience the most incredible displays of color in the sky. Attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors a year at this turn-of-the-year extravaganza, there are a few great places you can perch yourself to ohhh and ahhh.
Overlooking Sydney Harbour, Cremorne Point Manor is one of the most popular areas as the Point overlooks the Opera House and Harbour. Instead of trying to push through the crowds in the city, just an 8 minute ferry ride will take you to the Harbour where you can sit back, celebrate with friends & family and take in the full glory of the lights.
Also check out the Harbour Light Parade that’s started in 1999 to commence the Millennium celebrations. The parade involved 20 sea creature-themed Chinese lanterns on barges and illuminated vessels. Now known as the Harbour of Lights Parade, this year, the parade will show off more than 50 vessels including the Tribal Warrior Association boats, Sydney Heritage Fleet and tall ships.
Sailing from Cockatoo Island in the west to Clark Island in the east, the displays and lights are astounding to see, alongside rope lights of all colours.
When you’re considering where to stay for the New Year’s, Cremorne is an ideal venue. Now booked over New Year’s Eve, maybe enjoy a hotel stay with us on the surrounding days so you can feel the energy and hype of the city gearing up for the big night on the 31st.
Now that you know Cremorne Point Manor books out for New Year’s Eve around 2 months in advance of the end of December, you can make a note to book in September for 2014 New Year’s. But by seeing the firework display and Harbour Light Parade from Cremorne Point this year, you’ve already given yourself a rehearsal preview of what’s to come in around 12 months.
