What’s Happening Around Darling Square?

The Sydney Darling Harbour New Year’s Eve party is world renowned for its beautiful weather. Here’s one reason to celebrate the country’s flipped season schedules. As much as winter seems awesome in movies (read: New Year’s Eve, 2011 film), freezing your ass off would not be the nicest way to welcome 2019. So Sydney’s Spring/Summer weather during December is the perfect climate to celebrate NYE outdoors. They also have lively entertainment and amazing light and fireworks show, so you should definitely not miss out. However, securing a good vantage spot would not only be hard but almost impossible with the influx of tourists coming from all over the world. Keep in mind if you visit that Darling Harbour parking can be tricky so make sure you secure a car spot in the area early, you should be able to find Chinatown car parking which you can book online to avoid the rush. China Town is pretty close to the Novotel and Darling Square so you won't be going out of your way. The area has set up an elegant masquerade themed celebration complete with cocktails, champagne, and free-flowing food and drinks (5 hours). It has uninterrupted views of the harbour so no need to fight over space when the clock strikes 12 and the fireworks fly off. Simply enjoy the company, reminisce 2018, and welcome 2019.
