Hotels from which to view
New Year's Eve fireworks

There are lots of hotels situated close to the harbour with rooms that enable guests to view the Sydney Harbour Bridge lit up with fireworks on New Year's Eve.


The best positions for the fireworks are hotels in the broader Circular Quay/CBD and North Sydney areas.


The hotels listed below have rooms that provide bridge views, but you need to indicate your preference for a bridge view on the booking form when making a booking, and confirm this later via email. These hotel rooms sell out very quickly - some in the first month of the New Year - so you need to book as early as you can in order not to miss out.


Other rooms are available which, although they do not offer a view of the bridge, offer views of the fireworks over Sydney Harbour.
