Sydney Suburbs NYE Fireworks Shows

There are still plenty of Sydney suburbs NYE Fireworks shows however there are some changes to the 2021 events. Don’t assume that your favourite spots will be happening, in the same way, this year. Make sure you check the latest details in the links provided below before you head out.

Celebrating New Year in Sydney outside the CBD is not a bad idea, particularly if crowds are not your thing or you have little kids or you have seen the harbour NYE fireworks before. This year there are plenty of things going on in the suburbs. Here is my pick of NYE fireworks and celebrations outside the city centre. If this sounds like a crazy idea to you then check out all the city NYE options on my other post

The Newport Arms Hotel

It’s a long way to the city fireworks from the Northern Beaches and the Newport Arms huge beer garden party is a good reason to reconsider the journey to the big smoke. 

NYE at the Newport is an over 18’s event with great viewing of 2 fireworks shows (9pm and midnight). Apparently, the beer garden here is the biggest in the country, not sure if that is true but it’s certainly big. It is also the prettiest one I have ever visited.

With an outdoor dance floor and 5+ hours of music, this is a very good option for those living north who want to party the year away. They are also offering free transport home (in the area).

Cost: $99 for NYE Pergola Package
Where: Newport Arms Hotel, 2 Kalinya Street, Newport
When: 7pm-2am – Fireworks 9pm and Midnight
