Every New Year is the start of an unforgettable celebration with your friends and family. New Year’s Eve can sneak up on you right after Thanksgiving and Christmas because those celebrations take up most of your time. But any New Year’s Eve party, either intimate or grand, is always full of surprises and exciting energy. If it’s your turn to host the party, you need to start planning soon. Below are some ideas that you can use to create the best party of 2018.
One of the best places to celebrate New Year’s is Sydney, Australia and if you happen to be in Sydney then it’s your lucky day because there are so many places to go to close out 2017. Or if you have family and friends in Sydney, host a BBQ party for them because Sydney folks know how to party.
If you’re a Sydney local or a tourist, you can follow these plans below. Let’s start.
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 minutes-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 2018 in style.
Find The Perfect Spot
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.
If it all sounds like too much work, there’s another option available at one of Sydney’s best venues. The Australian National Maritime Museum hosts New Year’s Eve every year, and it’s a great event for the entire family. Simply book your place, choose your menu options, and the rest is taken care of! You can contact ANMM to find out more about their packages for a hassle-free New Year’s Eve.
