New Year in Sydney

by Lina148

Hi,

I will be spending New Year's Eve in Sydney with my boyfriend. Do you have any suggestions as to what to do on New Year's Eve? I think most activities (such as harbour cruises etc) will be fully booked and quite expensive, so we're looking for free/inexpensive activities. If we want to go out for picnic or see the fireworks, what would be the best place to go? Our hotel is in North Sydney (Rydges North Shore).

Thanks in advance!

The nicest area (within walking distance from North Sydney) is Kirribilli waterfront, almost under the bridge.
There are sweeping lawns with great views, and everyone takes a picnic. Its free too.
Best to go down around 4-5pm in order to get a nice spot.

There is also a spot at the very bottom of Blues Point Road, but it tends to get a bit overcrowded and rowdy, because its the favourite spot for teens to go.

Kurraba Point in Neutral Bay is nice-but its a fairly long way from North Sydney, and there is absolutely no parking.

Organized viewing areas and Harbour cruises are extremely expensive, and overrated in my opinion.

Instead of the Harbour cruise, there is a small ferry/taxi boat which is very reasonable and goes from one side of the bay to the other, and gives the same great harbor views!

Going to be a bit difficult having a picnic on a water-taxi!

Directly south of the North Sydney rail station is Lavender Bay. Suggest getting there early and taking along picnic dinner (there's an IGA supermarket and small shopping centre across the road from that rail station where you can get provisions). Try Lavender Street and get a position that gives a sweeping view of the bridge and the city skyline. We stayed at the Harbourview Hotel, which is above the Nth Syd rail station and can attest to the GREAT views from around there. As Lynne said, get there early.

Check it out on Google Earth.

Royal botanical gardens has a popular meeting point and is very good spot to watch all the fireworks display across the harbour with views of the bridge and opera house.

But you need to get their in the afternoon and stay put on the spot you find, it will get packed by evening.

Just bring a couple of cans of beer with you overwise they will take it away from you. It was the only place in the world I have ever been to and found free beer because so many people came with giant eskie filled with beer only find they could not take it into the gardens. Their is beer and food stall but with high prices.

Travel Tips for Sydney

Communication difficulties

by funggarybar

Australia is a developed country. However, there are some weaknesses in communications convenience when compared with some asian cities. Very unfortunately, cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Gold Coast failed to offer free Wifi. Possibly due to the cost of communications. I can only find free Wifi at McDonald. (Or you need to pay for internet fee in average AUD 4 per hour at some cafe)

Walk about the old parts....

by tizfabius

Walk about the old parts. There's so much history here, despite the fact that it feels so modern. It was thrilling to glimpse the Harbour Bridge from unexpected angles, such as when I was wandering through the The Rocks, as one of the old parts of town is called, and came upon the view captured in the pic above. Not your usual postcard shot! The pic on the left was from the top of the AMP tower. Blue, blue sky, and the weird feeling of being both in the UK and in the US, at the same time!

Night view of Harbour Brdige

by Gypsystravels

I love this picture of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at night. The picture was taken from our suite at the Sydney Marriott, Circular Quay. The sky was so clear and the lights were so bright, made for a very special night.

IMHO, Sydney boasts some of the best night skylines I have ever seen. The beautiful view from our suite at the Sydney Marriott, Circular Quay

Did you know that the AMP...

by Ronald_T


Did you know that the AMP Tower's turret is held in place by 56 cables, each weighting 7 tonnes? The 2239-tonne turret includes a 162 000 litre water-tank that acts as a counter-balance to wind gusts. The picture you see here was taken from the roof of our hotel 'Bernly Private Hotel'.
