Welcome the New Year on Cockatoo Island! Cockatoo Island is one of the best locations in Sydney to watch the spectacular, world-famous New Year's Eve fireworks.
Cockatoo Island is ideally located to enjoy the fireworks on both the Harbour Bridge (4 km away) and the western fireworks barge, which is located immediately in front of the island's eastern apron. If that's not enticing enough, the "Harbour of Light" boat parade passes in front of the island between 10pm and 11pm.
After the fireworks, just put your head down in your tent. You don't have to deal with the crowds, endure a long walk home or get caught up in traffic. You will have a hassle-free New Year's Eve in a family friendly environment! Enjoy a leisurely ferry ride home on New Year's Day or turn your stay into a real camping holiday and stay longer on Cockatoo Island.
