Party (Not Too Hard) Above Sydney on NYE

December 5, 2007 at 9:50 AM | by | ()

For those planning to spend the coming New Year's Eve Down Under, one of the best spots for watching the Sydney Harbour fireworks will be on top of the Sydney Tower, high above the ground.

There are several packages available for revelers who want to get high above Sydney: You can get tickets for the Observation Deck at the tower itself, or head up to the Skywalk, made up of glass-floored platforms suspended over the city. A local radio station will broadcast live from the deck and play the fireworks soundtrack up there, too.

Tickets include an OzTrek virtual reality ride plus a glass of sparkling wine or soft drink, but you'd better stop at one sparkling wine: Party-goers heading out to the Skywalk will have to pass an alcohol test (and measure below 0.05%) before they can hang out above Sydney.

is a great place to celebrate New Year's Eve. Then you can watch the ball drop in New York the next afternoon, after spending the morning at the beach (or on walkabout).

That's true ...

you get an extended NYE feel by partying Down Under. I always love calling up friends in the US and Europe and telling them "you're SO last year!"

I like how it feels

Watching the Aussies earlier in the day, before our new years.
