Ring in the New Year with family and friends at one of Australia’s most iconic harbourside vantage points for New Year’s Eve. Tickets are now on sale for the five NYE events taking place in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and Domain.

There is something for everyone, whether you are a regular to the Garden, a Sydney newbie or casual foodie looking for the ultimate picnic locale for New Year’s Eve. Each event is designed to offer individually themed celebrations alongside the magnificent location with breathtaking views of the fireworks.

Whether you choose the laid-back elegance of Lawn With The View; the family friendly circus theme of Harbour Hoopla, the over 18’s up-tempo vibe at The Point, the seated dinner and drinks affair to be discovered inside Midnight at The Oasis or the cocktail lounge amongst the newest horticulture display Plants with Bite at NYE at The Calyx - it will be a magical night to remember.
