New Year’s Eve Fireworks is Sydney’s largest public event. This famous, last night of the year is seen by more than a million people who will make their way and be gathered on Sydney’s foreshore. On this massive event you don’t have to feel overwhelmed by the crowds as there are many options around the Sydney harbour and surrounding suburbs for you to experience.


Finding a good place to watch the Sydney New Year’s Eve fireworks is not easy, you need to think about the good view, and whether there are many people there? Can I find an amazing front seat view of the fireworks? How do I get there, should I drive or take public transport? When should I arrive? Can I buy food or drink near the fireworks location?


Transport may be the most serious issue in this case. We strongly suggest you to: don’t think about driving. It will be very difficult to find parking in the Sydney CBD, and it is also very difficult to find parking in surrounding suburbs. It is simply nightmarish at this time of year due to road closures and crowds.


Taking public transport is the best choice. For getting into the CBD, taking a train is the best choice. But if you are trying to get to surrounding suburbs, taking a bus or taxi is better. Many streets near the fireworks vantage points are closed, but if you take a taxi, they are able to access these areas and drop passengers at the very end of the street.


There is also extra public transport in operation to get spectators home after the event. For planning your journey in advance, go to You can also go to the official Sydney New Year's Eve website: to find more information and get updates about road closures and transport disruption.
