Wave Line

New Year’s Eve in Sydney Harbour

New Year’s Eve is undoubtedly one of the best nights of the year, especially in Sydney! With our globally famous fireworks display and stunning backdrop to any New Year’s Eve kiss, Sydney Harbour knows how to throw a party.

Although it may seem pre-emptive, it is never too early to start planning your festive season social calendar. Granted, 2020 celebrations may be slightly different from the norm, but rest assured venues are working hard to ensure restrictions are followed and contracts are failsafe for whatever comes.

So, whether you want an intimate champagne soiree to celebrate 2021 or full-blown party with all your friends to wave goodbye to 2020, this guide to New Year’s Eve parties will get you inspired.

See in the New Year with Karisma Cruises, the festive party planners.

You provide the guests and we provide the rest! We aim to give the ‘wow’ factor, offering a range of exciting packages as well as exclusive luxury chartering in one of the most beautiful locations in the world! We go above and beyond, offering a highly tailored service and professional event coordinating to ensure each and every charter is a huge success.

Of course, Covid-19 is on everyone’s mind, especially in regard to parties. With the current restrictions in NSW, we are one of the few lucky floating locations that can hold a decent amount of people. Our flagship Karisma I has plenty of indoor and outdoor space allowing you to party the night away with peace of mind, knowing restrictions are being followed. We are staying updated with restrictions as and when they change, looking to provide our exclusive packages at full capacity.
