Travel Tips for New Year’s Eve on Sydney Harbour
If you haven’t been to Sydney for the New Year before:
- 01Watch your time. Getting around town can be tricky, and time consuming. There are a number of road closures and ferry stop closures.
- 02Forget road transport for getting around the harbour. City crowds are huge, and traffic is heavy. The easiest, and by far the quickest way to travel around Sydney Harbour, is by water taxi.
- 03Make sure that you get started early to get to your chosen spot on the harbour.
- 04Sydney Harbour is very crowded with a lot of boats and yachts crowding the harbour.
- 05The Sydney Harbour fireworks are very loud, much louder than a rock concert. Stay in the designated public areas for watching the show.
Choose Your Place to watch the NYE Celebrations
If you have already selected a place to enjoy the firework display you will also need to consider the best way of getting there and home after the show, and how to dodge the crowds and traffic on your return trip.
