What's on at Sydney Opera House on New Year's Eve?

No events for New Year's Eve at Sydney Opera House have been confirmed for 2020 just yet. From operas to five-course dinners, this place knows how to put on a show. New Year's Eve at Sydney Opera House has a host of events on, and these are some of our top picks:

  • Portside Sydney: Position yourself right on the edge of the harbour and prepare for unobstructed views of the "coathanger" and its fireworks spectacular. Your ticket includes unlimited champagne, beer, wine, canapes, food stations and live entertainment.
  • Bennelong: Feast on canapés followed by a five-course dinner by Peter Gilmore that's paired with matching wines, all within the Opera House's sails.
  • Opera Bar: Welcome the New Year on Darling Harbour foreshore almost directly under the sails of the Opera House. The 18+ dance party is set to feature Bermuda Social, Soulphonics, Ctrl + Alt + Delicious and Natural Selector this year. Roving food is included but drinks are extra.
  • Opera Gala: Sit back and watch some of opera's most famous arias on stage in the Opera House's Concert Hall, with favourites by Verdi, Puccini and Rossini. This show also gives the chance to watch both the 9pm and midnight fireworks.
  • La Boheme: Set among the fishnets of 1930s Berlin, this operetta that burns with the fire of romance and jealousy. Try to hold back your tears.
  • NYE Soirée: Ring in 2020 at the Yallamundi rooms at the Sydney Opera House and enjoy free-flowing champagne, beer, wine and canapes as the midnight strike for fireworks.

Getting around: Sydney New Year's Eve Road closures and public transport options:

While lines for transport leaving the city centre are often long, New Year's Eve is still a night to leave your car at home if you can.

  • Buses replace light rail services from 2:30pm-4am
  • Ferries will stop running on New Year's Eve from 8pm-12:45am and Transport NSW expects services to fill up, so plan to travel early.
  • Uber surcharges were very high last year, so be extra careful in checking the rate before booking a car.
  • Road closures start from 11am: Cahill Expressway will close to traffic from 11am and roads in The Rocks will close from 2pm, Anzac Bridge and the Western Distributor will be closed between 8:30pm-9:30pm and again from 11:30pm-1:30am.

    Hi

    I am travelling with my daughters to see/experience Sydney NYE 2018/2019.It’s their first trip overseas. I would like to find a family friendly place with a good vantage point. We don’t mind joining the long queues just to get a good spot. Our accommodation is in Arncliffe so I guess we will need to travel in early. So any vantage point on the side of the bridge we will be staying in would be good.

    Thanks

      Hi Scott,
      Thanks for your question.
      The list of vantage points for the 2017 fireworks has not yet been released, however last year certain points such as Neilson Park, Elkington Park and Goat Island allowed for BYO drinks.
      We will update our site with confirmation of details and locations when the official listing for this year’s event comes out.
      Hope that helps,

    We are booking a Chinese Restaurant called The East on Circular Quay which comes with sydney council tickets to access the Circular Quayside when our table expires at 8pm. Are there places to purchase alcohol without having tickets to enter the venues/bars on Circular Quay, when we have departed the restaurant at this time? We want to know that its not a non alcohol area?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      StephanieSeptember 22, 2016Staff

      Hi Karen,
      Thanks for your question.
      As mentioned in the article, many of the council vantage points are alcohol-free however there are a few that allow you to purchase alcohol on site. In Circular Quay, these spots are Bennelong Point and Lawn with the View. There will also be alcohol available at the Barangaroo vantage point.
      There are many bars along Circular Quay that will be open to the public. Getting into each however will depend on whether they have reached their maximum capacity or not. Alternatively, bottle shops will be open however by law they are required to close at 10pm.
      I hope that helps,
      Stephanie
