The Botanical Gardens are one of the best spots in Sydney all year round, but they are also a fantastic place to ring in the new year.

The views of the Opera House and the Bridge are amazing here, and you’ll find that the atmosphere is fun and thriving, perfect for people who want to get in amongst the action this New Year’s.
A Stunning Restaurant
An array of Opera House and Circular Quayside restaurants will give you a gorgeous evening of delicious canapes, drinks and to-die-for views of the fireworks display. You can opt for some fun, energetic venues or head to one of the more luxurious, iconic spots that put Sydney’s restaurant scene on the map. Opt for light snacks or go the whole hog and book a five-course degustation menu, whatever your taste preferences, there are options out there for you!
Setting up for a lovely, calm picnic with a view is one of the best ways to spend New Year’s Eve in Sydney. Head to Manly Beach for a beautiful family atmosphere at an iconic Sydney side spot, or why not go more central for the later show? Areas such as Bondi, Barangaroo, Millers Point, Balmain and Cremorne Point all have incredible views of the harbour, and grassy areas for all groups to sit back and enjoy. Bring along plenty of drinks and food though, once you abandon your spot it will be gone for good! This option is especially good for families with smaller children, you’ll avoid all the hassle of central New Year’s celebrations.
This one is another fantastic option for young families! The Mosman located zoo tends to sell out pretty quickly, so nab your tickets to enjoy a delicious dinner and drinks with one of the very best views on offer. Your ticket will go towards conservation and maintenance of the grounds, keeping those furry friends happy whilst you celebrate the night in style.
You can’t go wrong by celebrating your night at one of these fantastic destinations! Get ready for a night to remember, minus the stress! Happy New Year’s everyone!
