Sydney New Year’s Eve Fireworks – Tall Ship

New Year's Eve on Sydney Harbour

Sydney New Year’s Eve Fireworks – Tall Ship Cruise Experience

NYE Package Deal starts from $799 per person – Coral Trekker
Dinner, All Drinks & Live Music Included (Soren & Swan only)

Treat yourself to exclusive views of the 9pm Family fireworks, the stunning Bridge Effect and Midnight Displays from aboard the Sydney Harbour Tallships, which has access to privileged viewing areas. The Southern Swan is a magnificent traditional square rigger tall ship built in the style of the 1850s and has been part of Sydney Harbour’s New Years Eve celebrations for over twenty years.

Coral Trekker is a new addition to the Sydney Harbour Tall Ships fleet offering an alternative experience. “Trekker” is a smaller tall ship with a capacity of 40 people, and will feature recorded music rather than a live band as on Soren and Swan. Note that access to the heads/toilets on “Trekker” is via a steep staircase and may not suit some people.

Each year viewing positions change subject to the “Parade of Light” schedule determined by the City of Sydney. As a Harbour of Light Parade Vessel, we are part of the official event and therefore our position is inside the exclusion zone.

This fantastic cruise will sell out early. Book now to avoid disappointment.

Alternatively why not enjoy the Sydney Fireworks from our 1920’s timber ferry Wangi Queen? – just $649 per person! You will get to experience Sydney NYE on the harbour in style & complete comfort.

9:00pm Family Fireworks Display

The excitement has built. The crowds have been watching all of us and cheering. The First Nation ‘Welcome to country’. The smoking ceremony There may have been acrobatic Ariel displays and now for the first main event ‘the 21:00/9pm family fireworks. Sit back soak up the atmosphere and with drink in hand and maybe your kids by your side be immersed as we are treated to an amazing display that somehow gets better every year.

Midnight Fireworks Display
Can there be more. Since the amazing family fireworks we have paraded the Harbour showing off our light display to all the spectacular craft as we are not only watching the event but are part it!
There’s been a number of display firework firings as we are encouraged by the onlookers and as a crescendo builds and we take our allocated position for the next show that words can’t do justice to so come join us and experience the unforgettable for yourselves.

Note: Due to safety parameters out of our control in regard to the disarming of the fireworks barges and traffic clearance given thereafter, our vessels will endeavor to disembark passengers as efficiently as possible once clearance is given by the authorities. Disembarking usually occurs around 1:30am.

  • Our boats are positioned in the exclusion zone for prime viewing. Since 1999 the annual Sydney Harbour New Years Eve firework display has been organised by the City of Sydney with no disruption. By purchasing a ticket with Sydney Harbour Tallships, you acknowledge that if the fire work display is cancelled for any unforeseen reason, there will be no partial or full refund by Sydney Harbour Tallships.
