Top 10 New Year's Eve Destinations

A view of the fireworks over Sydney Harbour in Australia on New Year's Eve


CELEBRATE

A breathtaking light parade in Sydney Harbour? Check. Spectacular fireworks? Check. More than a million people gathered to be among the first to usher in the New Year? Double check. For an unforgettable front row seat to the fireworks, grab tickets for one of the city's best events with a view — we suggest the Royal Botanic Gardens or the La Bohème gala at the Opera House.


EAT/DRINK

The Sydney Cove Oyster Bar: Enjoy a special six-course degustation menu that always sells out early amid unparalleled harbor-front views of the Sydney Bridge.

Aria: Delight in drinks and a four-course tasting menu with matching wines — all with stunning harbor and fireworks views.

LuMi Bar & Dining: The restaurant will be serving a five-course degustation menu with wine and beer pairings. Located close to the water near Pyrmont Bay Park, LuMi is a great place to view the fireworks barges before the midnight show.


SLEEP

Glenferrie Lodge: This 19th-century guesthouse charms visitors with its lush garden and excellent views of Sydney Harbour. Best of all, you don't have to leave your cat or dog behind this holiday — the hotel is pet-friendly!

Cremorne Point Manor: This boutique hotel is intimate and cozy with just 29 bedrooms, and overlooks the Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens and Harbour Bridge.

Park Hyatt Sydney: A private boardwalk right on the harbor and an unforgettable rooftop cocktail party with an endless flow of Veuve Clicquot.
