Barangaroo Reserve, on the north western waterfront of the Sydney Central Business District, has quickly become a favourite destination for locals & tourists, with 1 million people visiting in its 1st year.
The spectacular harbourside location, sloping lawns & superb views of the sunset and the western face of the Sydney Harbour Bridge makes it the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic dinner & drinks, followed by the 9pm Family & Midnight Fireworks.
Barangaroo Reserve will have a capacity of 12,000 people, with tickets priced as low as possible to recover part of the costs directly associated with hosting the event. Ticketing Barangaroo Reserve for Sydney New Year’s Eve avoids overcrowding & increases public safety.
The Barangaroo Delivery Authority will provide entertainment at a number of locations throughout the park before & after the 9pm Family Fireworks as well as roving entertainers, extra toilet facilities, a high level of security & 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 Sydney New Year’s Eve.
“We ticket the event & limit numbers to 12,000 to ensure the comfort & safety of the public’’ Mr van der Laan said.
“We want people to have an enjoyable & memorable Sydney New Year’s Eve experience”
“The Stargazer & Walumil Lawns make ideal picnic spots. We will have well-staffed food stalls & licenced bars as well as a designated alcohol-free zone”
