What to Expect

Celebrate New Year's Eve in style on board an authentic tall ship in the heart of Sydney Harbour. Enjoy access to restricted parts of the city and Sydney Harbour for the best viewing of the fireworks. 


Departing from Cambell's Cove Jetty, the ships, which are lit up with light ropes, have the freedom of moving around the harbour to view other display vessels and, of course, pass by the city's famous icons. These ships have been regular 'Harbour of Light vessels' and will be in an exclusion zone for the countdown to midnight and fireworks show, ensuring you get a good view as you ring in the New Year.


The Southern Swan and Soren Larsen have capacities of 100 and 120, respectively. Each ship oozes character and boasts room for a live band, keeping an exciting atmosphere.


The friendly crew will serve canapes and drinks, with all bubbly, wines, beers, soft drinks, juices and water included.

Once the fireworks display is over, the ship will slowly make its way back to the dock.

Disembarking usually occurs around 1:30 am.
