Sydney Opera House on New Year's Eve

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' NYE 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.

      Hi Igor,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      It’s nice to know that you’re preparing for the NY Fireworks. I would assume that you are referring to Bradfield Park. It is a popular site for families. It offers views of the eastern and western sides of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. As of this time, I’ve looked into their official website and there’s no fee to get inside. The place opens from 8 am until 1 am.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!
