In the spirit of Dine & Discover and other post-COVID recovery efforts from the government, a fresh announcement over the weekend revealed plans aimed at drawing in visitors and helping to revitalise Sydney’s biggest event of the year: New Year’s Eve.
Taking advantage of what's possibly the best Sydney Harbour fireworks vantage spot, the NSW Government has announced it will be turning the Cahill Expressway into a seven-day outdoor party for NYE.
The busy road which splits the city and the water will be closed off to cars and opened up to foot traffic from December 31 to January 6 as part of the government’s $200 million State Significant Event Fund helping attract visitors to the state.
As part of the project, we can expect markets, live music, big screens, and pop-up food and drinks stalls throughout the day and night—all overlooking one of the prettiest harbours in the world.
While full details are scarce right now, we should hear more info when the NSW State budget is revealed on Tuesday 22 June.
For now, let’s just say we’re all the way in for a multi-day party in the heart of the city that involves eating, drinking, and entertainment. Especially one aimed at supporting our much-loved hospitality industry and helping to build the dream of Sydney’s 24-hour economy.
