New Year's Eve 2016 at Barangaroo Reserve

10 Oct 2016

Tickets to one of the best value harbourside vantage points for New Year’s Eve 2016 are now on sale.

With a child’s ticket reduced to $5.00 this year (down from $14.50 last year), the cost of a family of four is now $69.

Six thousand tickets went on pre-sale for subscribers to the Barangaroo e-newsletter at 12 noon today (Monday). The remaining 6,000 tickets will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, 12 October.

Tickets sold out last year in four weeks.

Barangaroo Reserve, on the north western waterfront of the Sydney CBD, has quickly become a favourite destination for locals and tourists, with one million people visiting in its first year.

The spectacular harbourside location, sloping lawns and superb views of the sunset and the western face of the Sydney Harbour Bridge make it the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic dinner and drinks, followed by the 9pm and midnight fireworks.

The Barangaroo Delivery Authority will provide entertainment at a number of locations throughout the park before and after the 9pm fireworks as well as roving entertainers, extra toilet facilities, a high level of security and one of the best views of the western harbour.

The Authority’s Chief Executive Officer Craig van der Laan said Barangaroo Reserve was a great family friendly option for New Year’s Eve.

“The Stargazer and Walumil Lawns make ideal picnic spots. We will have well-staffed food stalls and licenced bars, as well as a designated alcohol-free zone,” Mr van der Laan said.

“We are providing access to one of the best harbourside locations west of the Harbour Bridge, while also providing all the amenities to ensure a safe and comfortable experience.”

Gates on Hickson Road will open at 6pm on Saturday 31 December 2016.

Ticketholders are welcome to bring their own picnics. BYO alcohol and glassware will not be permitted on the night.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase onsite or people can pre-order from a range of picnic hampers when they purchase their tickets.

A total of 10 tickets can be purchased in one transaction. All tickets are available through Moshtix.
