Getting Ready For A Sydney New Year’s Eve

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Sydney is one of the best places in the world to be on New Year’s Eve, especially if you are on or near the harbour, but if you want to make the most of being in this gorgeous city for the party of the year, it’s essential that you get ready early. The following is a look at getting ready for a Sydney New Year’s Eve.

Find out what’s happening

The first thing you need to do is find out what events and parties will be taking place in Sydney on New Year’s Eve because there will literally be hundreds of things going on and you will need to know what they are if you are any chance of finding the right spot.

If you don’t like what’s happening, plan something yourself, as some of the best New Year’s Eve celebrations are often house parties or even low-key gatherings at home. Regardless of what you do, plan to catch at least some of the Sydney fireworks display, either in person or on television, because there is no other pyrotechnics display in the world like it.

Make reservations early

If your New Year’s Eve plan for Sydney involves attending any of those big parties, eating out at a nice restaurant or securing any sort of accommodation, make your bookings and reservations early. Everything from the parties to the hostels in Sydney will sell out early, so if you have your heart set on something special for New Year’s Eve that has limited space, book early to avoid disappointment.

Plan your outfit

There is no better time to dress up than for New Year’s Eve, so whether you are planning a big night out on the harbour or a romantic dinner for two at home, make sure you have something awesome to wear for this special occasion. If there is any chance you will end up near one of Sydney’s gorgeous beaches come sunrise, wear your swimmers under your outfit, just in case you get the chance for a New Year’s Day dip.

Book time off

There is certainly no shortage of things to do in Sydney on New Year’s Eve, and the parties continue right through until the evening on New Year’s Day as well, so if you are planning on being in Sydney for this special time of the year, book a few days off work so you can stay and fully enjoy it. Booking time off work around New Year’s Eve will usually require that you get your request in early, so get organised next year and book that time off as soon as you return from your Christmas holidays.

Plan for safety

It is easy to get carried away with the festivities in Sydney on New Year’s Eve. It’s important that you plan for safety from the start because it will only be a great night if everyone makes it home safely. If you will be heading out with a big group from your Sydney Backpackers, it is wise to buddy up so that everyone has someone looking out for them, and it is also a good move to avoid getting too inebriated. If you will be out on your own, make sure someone knows where you are going, as well as when to expect you back. If you don’t have a mobile phone, consider borrowing one for the night, just in case you need to call for a pick-up.
