Best NYE Events Around SydneyDec 13, 2016

I think we can all agree that 2016 has been a bit of a whirlwind. From the chaos that ensued from Pokemon Go, the excitement and drama of the Rio Olympics, the passing of legends like Prince and Bowie, the phenomenon of ‘dabbing’, the fruition of the mannequin challenge (still unsure as to who and why), oh, and Trump.

All in all, it has been a pretty crazy year,and we all deserve to let our hair down, so if you’re not brave enough to face the crowds that will flock to some of Sydney’s top viewing spots for the world famous fireworks, check out our picks of where to go to count in 2017 in total style.
