Sydney Harbour
NYE Fireworks Cruises

Sydney is one of the first few cities in the world to welcome the New Year and nobody knows better than the Sydneysiders to ring in the new year in style. Every year, more than a million people from all over the world flock to the stunning ‘Harbour City’ to be awe-struck by the extravagant farewell dedicated to the year-gone-by.

On New Year's Eve, Sydney Harbour transforms into a magical wonderland with stunning lights and spectacular fireworks shows. Needless to say, the best place to experience Sydney New Year in all its glory is aboard a harbour cruise. Enjoy unparalleled views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House like never before from the waters.

The Sydney Harbour New Year Cruises have always topped the charts when it comes to unique New Year’s Eve venues in Sydney. With cosy interiors, unmatched service, scrumptious food, and the best festive spirit, we have been hosting some of the best New Year parties in the world for years now. 

Sydney has not one, but two magnificent fireworks displays scheduled on New Year’s Eve: the family fireworks and the midnight fireworks. Fortunately, we are among the few selected cruises that have access to the special exclusion zone. This means you get to appreciate Sydney’s world-famous fireworks displays from the most extraordinary vantage points available in the city.  

We offer a range of cruises to help you make an informed choice; choose the right experience for you based on cruise duration, menu, entertainment etc. From breathtaking glass boats, authentic paddlewheelers, to luxurious catamarans, whatever your choice may be, these New Year's Eve cruises assure you the finest Sydney New Year celebration. End the year with a bang – dance to the beats of a live DJ, sing along with live bands or sit back and watch a remarkable cabaret show. Enjoy a night full of entertainment, delightful deluxe dinner accompanied by the best beverages and splendid views of the breathtaking Sydney Harbour.
