Event itself: the best fireworks display I've ever seen. Highly Recommended. But: It is questionable whether this event actually has to cost € 500. Not even long drinks were included. Again, 10-15 AUD were required for this. And then they didn't even taste. The organization left something to be desired. It wasn't easy until you found out from the crowd that you had to pick up a bracelet and where to get it. The boat was very full. Had there been a mass panic, it probably wouldn't have turned out well. You had to queue forever at the buffet. There was a huge flood in the ladies' room.

A unique experience and should be enjoyed by every visitor to Sydney

Visiting the Opel is always an experience and of course on New Year's Eve. The view of the bridge must have been seen, but the performance itself is also high-class. You should certainly also see which of the Opel buildings goes from the 2 stages.

Wonderful experience! In addition to seeing the Sydney Opera House, I was also able to see the fireworks, at 9 pm and later, at the turn of the year, from a privileged place.

Just great

Everything was great from the drinks selection and the food. 6 hours drive over New Year's Eve was awesome, only the price is a bit over the top ...

Insane experience:

The opera La Bohème for Susklang of the year, then the fireworks from the “balcony” of the opera - what more could you want !?
