To keep everyone in NSW safe, New Year’s Eve celebration arrangements will be different this year. Whether you are planning a celebration at home or in your local community, remember to ensure the safety of your family and friends.
Be aware of the number of people allowed in your home, maintain safe hygiene practices and use QR codes to check in if you are going out to a restaurant, pub or bar. For residents of (and visitors to) the Greater Sydney area, a number of changes to the New Year’s Eve fireworks display at Sydney Harbour will be in place. GENERAL PUBLIC There will be no 9pm family fireworks or activities around Sydney Harbour this year.
At midnight there will be a short firework display from Sydney Harbour Bridge only. This will be broadcast live on ABC TV, allowing you and your friends or family to watch from home. There will also be a number of measures in place to strictly control crowd numbers around the Sydney Harbour. DESIGNATED ZONES Designated zones will be established for Circular Quay, North Sydney and the city.
A designated Green Zone will be established for Circular Quay and at key public vantage points in North Sydney. This means only residents who live inside the zone, their guests, and those with confirmed bookings at venues such as restaurants, hotels or bars within the area will be allowed in.
Those with confirmed bookings, and residents, will be able to download a New Year’s Eve Pass from Service NSW. Passes will be checked prior to entry into the Green Zone area. Anyone who does not have a New Year's Eve Pass will not be allowed to enter.
A designated Yellow Zone will also be established around the Green Zone and people looking to gather in this area in large numbers may be subject to move-on Police powers. North Sydney, Bradfield Park, Blues Point Reserve, Mary Booth Reserve, Quibaree Park, Kurraba Reserve and Cremorne Reserve will not be open to the public. The New Year's Eve Pass will be available from Service NSW from Dec 7, 2020.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I HAVE IN MY HOME? From Dec 1 up to 50 people can visit a residence as along as an outdoor space is being used, however, it's recommended no more than 30 people gather if the residence has no outdoor area.
WHAT ARE THE RULES FOR OUTDOOR GATHERINGS? From Dec 1 up to 50 people can gather outdoors in a public space.
WILL PUBLIC TRANSPORT BE RUNNING AS NORMAL ON NEW YEAR’S EVE? To maintain physical distancing across the network, public transport services continue to run at a reduced capacity. On New Year’s Eve, public transport will run regularly with some additional services. Find the green dots and wear a mask to stay COVID safe when travelling on the public transport network.
WILL ROADS IN THE SYDNEY CBD BE CLOSED? To allow those with restaurant or venue bookings move safely around the Sydney CBD and practise physical distancing, some road closures will need to be put be in place. Have a safe and wonderful New Year's Eve. and we look forward to a better 2021 with new hope, with what's been a very trying year for all of us.
