Every year Sydney’s New Year’s Eve celebrations reaches a global audience of more than one billion people, but this year there will be a shorter version of Sydney’s New Year Eve fireworks display.
To keep everyone safe, the NSW government will allow up to 3,000 people to gather outside for New Year’s Eve. Anyone visiting Sydney’s CBD and North Sydney will have to carry a pass as the government eases restrictions for the festive season. To help keep New Year’s Eve celebrations COVID safe, special zones will be set up for Circular Quay, North Sydney and the City. There will be a Green Zone and a Yellow Zone. The zones will be in effect from 5pm on Thursday 31 December. Please view the map of the designated Green and Yellow Zones.
This year, the New Year’s Eve concert will be aired, and Sydney City will be tightly controlled to maintain COVID safe measures. This year, for the state’s frontline workers, the harbour side area will be reserved for them to view the fireworks.
