Tickets to one of the best value events on Sydney Harbour go on sale this week
You are invited to share in Sydney’s brand new view of one of the world’s most spectacular fireworks displays.
The Barangaroo Delivery Authority, on behalf of the NSW Government, will release 10,000 tickets this week for Sydneysiders and visitors to celebrate New Year’s Eve at Sydney’s sensational new Harbour headland park, Barangaroo Reserve.
The theme of this year’s City of Sydney fireworks is City of Colour. The Reserve will offer superb value for a prime view of the iconic Sydney Harbour fireworks. A selection of locations in the Reserve will also give visitors views of this year’s new illuminations on the western face of the Harbour Bridge for the world-famous 12-minute midnightfireworks display.
Gates on Hickson Road will open at 6.00pm on Thursday, 31 December 2015, with picnic spaces on the Walumil and Stargazer lawns. The site will feature light entertainment, family-friendly alcohol-free zones and licenced areas.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase onsite and ticketholders have the option to pre-order a gourmet picnic hamper. Guests will be welcome to bring their own picnics, however BYO alcohol will not be permitted on New Year’s Eve.
The event is for all ages and entry is strictly by ticket only. Ticket prices are: $14.50 (Child 3-15, Concession); $29.50 (Adult 16+); Family $79 (two adults & two children). A total of 10 tickets can be purchased in one transaction.
Craig van der Laan, CEO of the Barangaroo Delivery Authority, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer the public one of the most affordable and best value-for-money New Year’s Eve tickets in Sydney. The Authority has run ticketed New Year’s Eve viewing in previous years while Barangaroo Reserve was still under construction. These were a tremendous success. This year will be so much better with Barangaroo Reserve now complete. Guests will be able to sit on the lawns, buy food and beverages, and enjoy one of the most spectacular new views of Sydney in comfort.
“We are ticketing the event and limiting the numbers to 10,000 so we can ensure the comfort and safety of guests while minimising disturbance to our neighbours,’’ he said.
