Sydney Royal Botanic Garden: The Ultimate New Year’s Eve Plans!

It’s not too soon to start thinking about your New Year’s Eve plans if you’re looking for a night to remember, especially if you’re in a hurry to kiss 2019 goodbye. Sydney, Australia is one of the first places to tick over into the new year every year.

If you’re planning to be in town when 2020 rolls around, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney, should be at the top of your list. Here’s why.

A Choice of New Year’s Eve Plans

When you choose to spend the last day of 2019 at the Sydney Royal Botanic Garden you get to decide between 5 events happening on the day.

Here’s a heads up to help you decide which Sydney New Years Eve 2019 tickets are best for you –

The Point

This over-18s party includes the latest funky beats courtesy of a live DJ as well as a host of international food stalls – all included in the ticket price.

Expect a casual, festival atmosphere and ringside seats for the midnight fireworks. 

The Lawn with a View

These are the cheapest tickets you can get for the New Year’s festivities at the Gardens. Your entry fee includes a picnic hamper and there’s a cash bar on site.

Children of all ages can join in the fun at this casual event on the Bennelong lawn, right alongside the Opera House.

Midnight at the Oasis

This is one place you want to be for views of the Sydney Bridge fireworks on New Years Eve 2019. It’s a swanky reservations-only affair with communal tables a three-course meal, and live music all night long.

When you’re done with fine dining and shaking your moneymaker on the dance floor, you’re guaranteed to end the evening with a spectacular bang. 

The venue is close to Mrs. Macquaries Point, near Fleet Steps South, and guarantees unobstructed views of the light show at midnight. 

Harbor Hoopla

If you’re looking for family-friendly New Years Eve events, you can’t top harbor hoopla at the Botanic Gardens.

This circus-themed party promises fun for all ages with a partial view of the fireworks as the clock strikes twelve. Your ticket includes a picnic hamper and you can buy drinks and snacks on site.

Once you’ve had your fill of the photo booths, carnival games, and the Big Top Workshop, you can settle down and enjoy the spectacular show over the harbor. 

Harbor Hoopla takes place at the Tarpeian Precinct just behind the Opera House. 

Garden Party at the Calyx

This New Years Eve Party kicks off right in the heart of the gardens and is a swish affair with canapes, food stations, and drinks as well as live music all night long.

As the hands of the clock wind down to zero hour, you’ll wander along a garden path to an exclusive area for the best view of the fireworks in town.
