Woollahra boasts many fantastic locations to view Sydney’s NYE fireworks spectacular, and each year tens-of-thousands of people flock to the municipality to enjoy the show. If you are preparing to welcome the arrival of 2019 in Woollahra, we urge you to plan ahead to ensure a safe and stress-free New Year’s Eve.

Many local roads in Darling Point, Rose Bay, Vaucluse and Watsons Bay will be closed to traffic from 3pm on New Year’s Eve, although vehicle access will be available to residents in affected areas and their guests until 6pm. Full road closures will be in place from 6pm until 2am on Monday 1 January.
