No Taxis

There will be no taxis at this time because fewer people will be working and many people will want to be using them!

If you need to get from one place to another, make sure to always have a couple of backup options to get there, as you may find your primary route isn’t going to work out.

You’ll probably need to battle it out with other travellers at some points, but as long as you’re prepared with a plan then you shouldn’t have too much of a problem.

Pick One Spot

Watching the New Years fireworks in Sydney is an amazing experience and it’s arguably one of the best displays in the world.

Because of this, there are about a million different destinations you can watch the fireworks from, but the worst mistake you can make is to move around.

Not only will this be difficult due to the sheer number of people, but it also means that you risk losing your one location to move to another that may have more people and a worse view.

Your best bet for Sydney New Years as a traveller is to pick your destination ahead of time and stick with it.

Get There Early

Once you choose your destination, get there early early early. Want a good spot for the fireworks? Great, so does every other person.

If you’re not there early you may not get a great vantage point for watching them. Seeing as it’s summer in Australia, parking yourself outside for a few hours (or more) shouldn’t be too big of a burden.

Bring Your Own Food

While there are plenty of food places around all the popular places to watch the fireworks and plenty of bars and places to get alcohol, you should bring snacks and some of your own food.

Not only will this save money, but it means you don’t need to risk losing your place by getting up and moving around.

Maybe Choose A Boat

Boats may be some of the best vantage points for watching the fireworks, but one thing to keep in mind is once you’re on that boat there’s no getting off until it docks again, so this isn’t a great idea for people who have never been on a boat before.

However, dinner and drinks and an excellent place to watch the fireworks could be an excellent investment.

Experiencing Sydney New Years as a traveller is an amazing experience and not one you’ll forget, so keeping these 5 tips in mind, go out and have an excellent time and ring in the new year with enthusiasm, we know you will.
