1.  The greatest New Year's Eve fireworks on earth

The Sydney Harbour entertainment and fireworks are known as the best New Year’s Eve celebrations in the world. Harbour Hoopla takes place on Tarpeian Lawn overlooking Circular Quay and the Sydney Harbour Bridge - giving a fantastic vantage point of the pre-show aerial display, the 9.00 pm family fireworks, Harbour of Light Parade, and all-important midnight fireworks over the Harbour Bridge.

2. Entertainment for the ages

The expansive lawns of Harbour Hoopla will play host to non-stop entertainment including a stylish vaudeville Funfair Alley complete with vintage-style kissing booth, and fantastic large-scale photo booths with an array of  quirky custom-made costumes.

Kids and big kids alike can visit the Big Top workshop to mingle with the show-stopping circus performers and try their hand at some tricks of their own. 

It's not New Year's without a boogie - and DJ Soup will keep the dance floor moving with a mix of electroswing and pop throughout the night.
