Sydney Harbour New Year’s Eve Experience

Hop aboard Sydney Showboats for the most exciting New Year’s Eve 2019 fireworks cruise on Sydney Harbour. The fireworks display over the Sydney Harbour Bridge is the most awaited, the most watched, the most televised and the most reported New Year’s Eve event in the world. Our authentic paddlewheeler hosts one of the best Sydney Harbour NYE party cruises and offers a prime Harbour position for the fireworks display.

The Sydney Showboat New Year’s Eve Cruise promises a night full of spectacular sights, great food and entertainment that transcends all expectations! This all-inclusive Sydney Showboat New Year's Eve package includes seven hours of cruise time, a five-course, restaurant-quality seated and served dinner and a premium selection of all beverages for the duration of the cruise.

This luxury paddlewheeler is fully air-conditioned and built to the highest nautical standard with a stylish interior of backlit marble, warm lighting, rich textured fabric and dramatic lines. The Sydney Showboats have large wrap-around balconies and expansive outer decks that give you an unobstructed view of Sydney’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display – the most watched and the most televised New Year’s Eve event in the world. It kicks off with the 9pm family fireworks, and be there again when the clock strikes midnight, to see the night sky as it bursts into a colourful canvas with spectacular fireworks.

What’s more, the Sydney Showboat New Year’s Eve cruise is one-of-a-kind as it offers continuous entertainment that includes the spectacular show ‘Voyage of Love’. Glamorous showgirls, in glittering, beaded outfits, usher you into this New Orleans-style paddlewheeler and transport you into a sensational world of glitz and glamour. Our talented all-Australian cast of singers and dancers enthrall you with jaw-dropping performances that take you on an exotic journey that draws inspiration from popular dances from around the world.

The Sydney Showboat also participates in the Harbour of Light Parade that has an illuminated fleet of over 40 vessels trimmed with orange-coloured rope light to create a visually stunning parade that cascades down the Sydney Harbour. This is a unique spectacle for both Sydney-siders as well as guests on board the cruise boats.

This New Year's Eve cruise has been sold out every year since 1999 and is in great demand due to its exceptional value. With a glittering cabaret show, fine cuisine and great party music, the Sydney Showboat New Year’s Eve cruise is an experience that will be etched in your memory for a long time to come. So, be there, at the centre of all the action when the countdown to 2020 begins!
