We have listed as many NYE dining packages as we can, because we think seeing them on one page will help make your choice a little faster.

Avoid the crowds and bring in the New Year, sharing a meal

Choosing a waterfront restaurant for the 2023 NYE Fireworks event is a great way to ensure you are front and centre for the show.

In the past it was pretty safe to leave your NYE restaurant booking until just before Christmas, but this year I would suggest this may change. The increase in free areas may see many who do not want to spend all day waiting for the show to start turn to restaurants.

You may find you are required to pay a cash deposit or complete payment at the time of booking. If this will be your first joining the celebrations, check out of first timer’s guide to NYE in Sydney.

If you are looking for fireworks events please check our NYE Megalist.
