NYE Countdown to 2013 in Sydney!


New Year's Eve celebrations are where city skylines explode into colorful flames of fireworks display and Sydney's fireworks have been rated one of the best in the World! Celebrating NYE in Sydney requires planning and placing reservations months or even 1 year in advance as many tourists around the world flock to Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge to catch the spectacular fireworks display.

After considering all options, we decided to book a Sydney Harbor Dinner Cruise which lasted 5-6 hours from 7pm until about 1am. We booked THE BLUE ROOM luxury cruise costing AUD550/adult. Dinner and free flow of drinks were provided and we managed to get pretty close to the fireworks without having the need to squeeze with the massive crowds all around the area. Being on the cruise, we were able to sit on comfortable sofas on the upper level and when it gets hot, we were able to go to the lower level which was air-conditioned. Service was fantastic, food was decent and crowd was well-behaved and sophisticated. There were no rowdy teenagers or drunkards.


If you plan to celebrate NYE in Sydney City, below are some handy tips:
1. Plan, book ahead months in advance as hotels/restaurants/cruise get booked out very quickly
2. Be prepared to spend as it is going to be expensive
- Most hotels require minimum booking of 4 nights or more over NYE period
- Most restaurants with Fireworks view have special NYE dinners that cost around $300+/adult
- For free viewing, people camp overnight or go early morning to book a best viewing spot in gardens and bays around the Sydney Harbour
- Most roads are closed so wear comfortable walking shoes as you need to walk a lot, squeeze with massive crowds of people and be prepared to reach home late ... patience is needed!
- Best Free viewing spots are: Areas near Sydney Opera House, The Rocks, Cremorne Point Reserve, Bradley Field Milson's Point, Birchgrove, Macquarie Street lawns etc.





The fireworks display started at 9pm specially for families which was beautiful. However, the 12 midnight one was even more spectacular and everyone was in high spirits for such a festive occasion. This year, there was a giant set of sexy lips in the middle of the Sydney Harbour bridge and Sydney's skyline exploded into fiery burst of pink, gold and white flames. It was an amazing feast for the eyes! Dazzling display!!!
