New Year’s Eve Sydney Restaurant Packages 2022

We have been researching New Year’s Eve Sydney restaurant packages to help you find the best restaurants to see the Sydney fireworks or celebrate the new year. There is little detail available yet, but we expect to see lots of options become available from late-Oct.

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. Below are the 2022 NYE dining option offerings with their availability as at late December.

Fully updated 21/12/22 with availability included.

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

Choosing a waterfront restaurant for the 2022 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. You may find you are required to pay a cash deposit or complete payment at the time of booking.

If you are looking for fireworks events across the city on 31 December, please check our NYE Megalist.
If you would like to book a NYE Cruise, check out our tips.
