Sydney has it all for New Year's Eve

Sydney is the place to be for New Years!

So do you want to do something special this 31st December 2015?  That's right the date is the last day of the year, New Year's Eve!  

New Year's Eve celebrations

If you want something special then look no further than Sydney. There are few places in the world that have celebrations with such anticipation as the Sydney New Years Eve event.  Held in Sydney with Sydney Harbour as the canvas and the bridge as the conduit this party rocks!  We identify New Years Eve Sydney spectacle as one of the Eight NYE Wonders of the World.  And with the prospect of a nice Australian Summer night, this lifts this event to the top!  Fireworks, Parties, Great people ... what else do you want?

Sydney New Years Eve 

With so much going on in and around the Sydney Harbour for this super event it's important to keep in mind to have a view to the Sydney Harbour Bridge where a central part of the fireworks display will originate from.

There are lots of ideas for ticketed events to be a part of on the water, around the water and high up above.  Get onto the details of these to make the most of a super Sydney New Years Eve.  
We love NYE!  And we love Sydney NYE even more!

Only Two months until New Years Eve. Make your NYE a TREAT!

Don't be a Pumpkin this NYE Midnight!

As Halloween ticks past, the 31st October marks exactly two months until New Years Eve.

We don't want to alarm you, but have started to get your plans in place for your NYE yet?  
31st December 2015 will tick around really quickly!

Consider things like what city will you be in? And then will you be attending a private party with friends, a free public event or value add all of that by hitting a themed NYE party at one of the great venues that takes in the fireworks action of the public events.  Do you want to dine, dance or both?  Do you need a family event?

Now is certainly the time to start thinking about NYE if you haven't already.  Because once you settle on the where, then you can look at the how?  Things that then come to mind are, do you need new years eve transport? Or do you need new years eve accommodation?

It really is a super saver if you can get organised with your NYE ideas and plan early.  Make sure you checkout all the events and New Years Eve ideas and then get a shortlist of ideas for  your friends.  Make sure you take into consideration the Early Bird ticket specials for themed NYE parties.  This can save you a lot of money.   And it might be that an all inclusive NYE party helps you and your friends budgets too.  Or is pay for drinks and food as you go better?

Last off ... make sure you think about how you are getting home from the NYE party or maybe book accommodation close by and share that cost with friends.  Some places have apartments and family rooms and these can sell out early.  It really is no great night when at the end of NYE all you are left with is a pumpkin for a ride home!. Make your NYE a treat and not a trick!

New Years Eve 2015 across 8 Great Cities of Oz

The Great 8 Cities of Oz NYE Spectacular. 

It sounds like something out of a Wizard of Oz preview. But no it's highlighting from a tourism perspective that Australia has Eight Great Cities, each with sensational New Years Eve events.

People pay to see spectacular shows and events all around the world. But on 31st December Australian councils and privateers put on some of the greatest fireworks displays around the world. All for FREE.  You just have to be there!
And of course why wouldn't you be there? It is summer in Australia and generally the December climate on NYE is warm and sunny.  If you want choices on weather then there are differences between places like Darwin and Hobart. As is the Melbourne from Perth.  East and West, North and South of Australia the options are endless.

And the hospitality of Australians is world renowned.  We also have found over years of experience that Hotels do have vacancy over the Christmas New Years Holiday period and so there are affordable options. And from our observations on our days of Miss New Years Eve promotions, you really can't get a better pash on NYE than in Oz. 

And if you want more than to pull up some parkland grass and watch the free show. Yes if you want a spot to sit down and get a drink and maybe served some delicious restaurant food and have a boogie, then Australia has so many great options.  On they have details of NYE events spanning the great country.  In the nations capital Canberra, you can POP the night away with a very special performance in the Albert Hall by the reformed Canberra Pops Orchestra, and step out onto the terrace to see the 9pm and midnight fireworks.   In Melbourne a sensation party by NYE favs, the H2oh crew with Harbourside is down at the Docklands with one of the best viewing areas of the Docklands and City fireworks, just step away from the awesome beats out onto the spacious terrace.   In Hobart there is no better place than NYE on the Pier with fireworks shimmering across the Derwent waters.. And that is just 3 of the awesome events around the Great Oz.

And if you are not staying close to the party then each city of Oz has some great public transport options. Normally each city puts on free trains or buses to make sure the public gets home safely.  And if that is not enough, taxis and share ride and ferries and water taxis are also common.  Go on ... Get Here to Australia for New Years Eve 2015 and party into 2016 with us Aussies!

NYE Concierge visits Morning Star Estate

Morning Star for NYE

Our NYE Concierge at Morning Star Estate.

Morning Star Estate is at Mt Eliza on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. It's just about 45 minuted from Melbourne.  And WOW gorgeous venue with fabulous ground and gardens.  When the NYE Concierge visited for lunch the food was divine and the service impeccable.  And with the National Geographic identifying the Mornington Peninsula as one of the top 20 places in the world to visit .. one has to listen!  
Morning Star dining
New Years Eve at Morning Star Estate is to be a refined affair but the entry package price for NYE tickets is quiet reasonable.  We loved the time at the Estate and could imagine a lovely time here on the 31st Dec.  Read about our Concierge's time at Morning Star and what they thought of the food and surrounds.

New Years Eve event discounts and benefits for groups

A group of friends at Spice Market celebrating NYE

New Year's Eve group discounts

NYE is all about spending time with friends and loved ones.  The 31st December is about seeing the old year out and looking towards the new year and reflect with a joke and a laugh with your friends.  A lot of people like to head to an event or a venue to celebrate this NYE occasion with their group of friends.    

Venue managers and event promoters love big groups. You should expect a NYE ticket discount if you have a group of 10 or more. Or you may be able to negotiate even something more creative like some VIP service or a booth or table reserved for your group.  Maybe even a bottle of champagne or a drink card or extra food.  Make sure that if you are booking your New Years Eve group into an event that you speak with the promoter or the venue manager.  They will appreciate looking after you with that little extra. And have a happy new year..
