Million dollar views for NYE fireworks

1/4

The word is out that local journos have been flocking to The Macleay in Potts Point for years to secure their NYE firework snaps. So are you ready to follow the experts? The Macleay comes with million dollar views of the Sydney Opera House – but without the matching price tag.

The accommodation comes at a reasonable price, and if you’re looking for the best seat in the house, go for one of the Harbour view rooms. Now all that’s left to organise is the friends’ invite and some celebratory bubbly!

Heritage charm to welcome in the New Year

1/3

Just a short walk from Circular Quay through the cobbled street’s of The Rocks, is MGallery’s Harbour Rocks Hotel.

You could be forgiven for not noticing the hotel on first sight – its heritage facade and large industrial wooden doors do well at hiding the boutique rooms inside.

Step into the hotel lobby, which is actually more of an atrium. Help yourself to complimentary home-made lemonades, while perusing the extensive library of books that line the lobby walls.

For the best view of the fireworks, and Darling Harbour, opt for a Harbour View Suite. Be sure to enjoy a drink downstairs at Eric’s Bar in the hotel lobby, or venture up to the rooftop for drinks with harbour views. The wine list has an impressive mix of Australian and International vinos.

Rooftop spot for water views

1/4

Darling Harbour is a great place to secure some spectacular firework views, and if you’re looking to experience these from the comfort of a hotel, Hyatt Regency Sydney delivers superbly.

Thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows featured in the rooms, guests are ensured unobstructed water views. Our recommendation? The Suite, which comes complete with a wrap-around balcony overlooking Darling Harbour.

Make sure you visit the hotel’s rooftop bar, Zephyr, which will no doubt deliver some spectacular firework views to welcome in the new year.
