Celebrate NYE on Barangaroo Reserve.

We look forward to welcoming the New Year with you at Barangaroo Reserve.

We're delighted that this year will be FREE and non-ticketed for everybody and is the ideal spot for families, friends and couples to enjoy panoramic views of the fireworks and western face of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

No special spots or reservations, it's first-come, first-served. We'll make sure it's safe with capacity limits. Once a spot's full, it's closed, so come early! No pass outs. 

Plans for NYE23 at Barangaroo are still being developed. You can find more information below and this webpage will be updated regularly with additional information as it becomes available.
