The New Year’s Eve fireworks on Sydney Harbour Bridge need no introduction. We all have some memory of them, whether it be watching from home with the family or seeing them live from one of the many vantage points around the city.

One such vantage point is at Pirrama Park in Pyrmont, which is this year offering free entry to a managed access area, complete with excellent views of the western side of the bridge.

The event is family friendly and access is completely free – the perfect opportunity to bring a picnic rug and some snacks to watch the spectacle unfold, but note that glass and BYO alcohol are prohibited. There will be stalls and foodtrucks open throughout the evening serving a variety of food and drinks, including a fully licensed bar.

The area opens at 2.00pm on 31st December and closes at 1.00am on 1st January following the midnight fireworks display. Make sure to get in early and secure a spot because the site will no doubt hit its 15,000-person capacity later in the day. There is no parking available and surrounding roads will be subject to closure, so taking public transport is strongly recommended.

There will also be a ticketed event starting at 5pm for those looking to maximise their New Year’s Eve experience with exclusive views and the choice of a menu selection from two of Pyrmont’s leading restaurant establishments.
