Sydney is famous for being one of the greatest places in the world to ring in the new year.
Pair that with a seat in the city's iconic Sydney Opera House for its New Year's Eve show and you've got a night that will be hard to forget.
Getting tickets to this event offers you a premier position to view both the 9pm and midnight fireworks.
The Sydney Opera Houses' New Year's shows:
Both La Bohème and The Opera Gala's intervals are perfectly timed with the 9pm fireworks display where you can step out and see the pyrotechnics display.
Guests are welcome to stay at the Opera House until the midnight fireworks. For unparalleled views, canapes, drinks and live entertainment, you can also book a spot at the Midnight Party. This can be added alongside your opera tickets when you booked.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
