"Position yourself right smack..." The Rocks / Circular Quay Tip by Krystynn

The Rocks / Circular Quay, Sydney: 42 reviews and 101 photos


Position yourself right smack at CIRCULAR QUAY or THE ROCKS area on New Year's Eve to catch the spectacular fireworks!

Or you can also choose to dine at one of the many lovely restaurants located along The Rocks - facing the Sydney Harbor (like what we did)... and you can still get to see the fireworks! The fireworks that night started promptly at 9 p.m. and lasted for a full 15 minutes or so.

O.K.... The Sydney folks are a real friendly bunch i.e. they'd just grab anyone and everyone along the road, streets etc... and kiss them. So, be prepared to start fending off all these men who seemed to find great joy doing just that (Note: <i>These guys don't look like Brad Pitt. So....</i>). Alternatively, stay put inside the restaurants and party there. The folks who dined at these restaurants are better behaved.
