New Year’s Eve is right around the corner! With only a handful of days left, here are some last-minute NYE plans for the late planners. Despite being one of the most prominent events in the harbour city, people do tend to leave planning and booking for it till the last few weeks.

Here are a few tips for all the last-minute NYE organisers…

With prices shooting up right from early summer time, late bookings are generally expensive at most waterfront restaurants and cruises. But if you are part of a small group, a couple or going on your own, keep an eye out for the last spots sale! When a venue has very few seats left, you can get a good deal for your booking if you are prompt enough. So, wait for the promotion that says the last few seats and don’t hesitate when you see it! Just go ahead and book! 

If you manage to book your seats on a Sydney Harbour New Year’s Eve cruise, there’s nothing better! You’re in for a special NYE experience away from the crowds with this one. Book a Sydney NYE cruise and enjoy roving fireworks cruise with delectable dining and drinks! With limited entry, go on board a stunning vessel and capture great pictures with the harbour as your backdrop! You can also click one of you shouting “Happy New Year!” with the world-famous fireworks behind you from the decks of your Sydney NYE fireworks cruise!

Next option, go for a free spot on the harbour. With crowds thronging the free spots around the harbour from as early as the 30th of December, it’s not surprising why fewer people are opting for this option as years pass by. Also, most of the free spots don’t allow you to bring alcohol which is another put-off. Who wants to say Happy New Year without a glass of bubbly in hand!

If you don’t mind being away from the harbour then you can drop down at one of the many bars or clubs. Most of them keep entry open till 31st of December, so you’re sure to get in. Do remember, it is going to be a crowded affair nonetheless. Also, the harbour is the centre of all action and no matter the number of times you’ve witnessed it before, there’s no place better! So think before you decide to miss it!

With your planning done, all you have to do is to pick the one you want and then wait until the clock strikes twelve to shout out the three magic words - Happy New Year!
