  3. Rent a Venue
  4. Find the Perfect Spot
  5. Food and Drinks

Host a Great Party at Home 

If you’re a local, throw an intimate and fun gathering of friends and family at home. Going out on New Year’s Eve can be too much for some and commuting can be an issue, but an at home get-together can inspire your creativity without causing too much stress.

Find a Great Place to Stay

 

If you’re a tourist, you need to find a good place to stay in Sydney. If you can, find a place near Sydney harbor - you’ll have a great view of the fireworks and you’ll be right in the middle of all the celebrations. Private and public transportation is always available after the fireworks are done, so there will be less stress if you find a place nearby. Find a place that is 10-20 minutes walk from the harbor.

Rent a Venue

If you’re hosting a big party, you can go all out by renting a private space or venue. Since it’s a big party, you need to send out invitations right away! Make the event a dress up, or a black tie event to really celebrate 2019 in style.

Find the Perfect Spot

Royal Botanical Gardens Cottage and City

After you have checked in to your hotel you have to remember that the Sydney harbor will become full of people, about 1 million of them. So, try to arrive a day or a few days before and in the morning of New Year’s Eve, find a good spot at the Botanical Gardens or the Opera House.

Food and Drinks

No party is complete without food and drink! If you’re hosting, go for a trusted catering service that will provide the best food, drinks and service. Laissez-faire offers a huge range of mouth-watering menus for your New Year’s Eve party. Menus include:
