New Year's Eve - Campbells Cove

Picture perfect, Campbells Cove will give you one of the best seats in the house for Sydney’s NYE fireworks display.

Feel fully immersed in the party atmosphere as you celebrate the New Year with family and friends, all while Sydney’s Harbour Bridge and Opera House put on a show like no other.

Campbells Cove, just east of The Rocks and north of the Overseas Passenger Terminal, is the perfect vantage point to watch Sydney’s iconic landmarks, the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, light up the night sky to say farewell to 2019 and ring in 2020. This year you will be able to enjoy some entertainment whilst waiting for the all-important key moments of the night along with having access to a number of food vendors and facilities in the area. Or why not pre-purchase specially curated hampers of Cheese and Chocolate or Cheese and Charcuterie designed to share for two or four people. These can be purchased pre-event and will be ready for collection on arrival to the venue. Note that a maximum of 10 items (tickets and hampers) are possible per customer transaction.

Being an alcohol-free zone makes Campbells Cove a fabulous family-friendly place to enjoy the 9pm and midnight fireworks shows. For this reason, tickets are in high demand – so it’s important to be quick or you’ll easily miss out!

Single Adult and Child tickets are available. Note that infants and children 3 years and under are free however require a ticket.

Please be aware that in order to purchase a child ticket, an adult ticket must first be selected.
