The Southern Star has wrap around decking allowing ample viewing of the exciting Festivities. The vessel has been recently refitted to enhance your enjoyment of one of Sydney's premiere nights.

Join Sydney in its celebrations as we welcome in the New Year aboard one of Sydney's friendliest cruise catamarans, the Southern Star.

Offering 360-degree views for prime viewing of the spectacular New Year's Eve fireworks and an all inclusive cocktail cruise for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve celebration aboard this 2 levelled catamaran with panoramic views of fabulous Sydney Harbour from each level

Catering for 200 passengers, with room enough to enjoy the evening without the loss of a more intimate feeling, you will enjoy three hundred and sixty degree views of beautiful Sydney Harbour and the spectacular fireworks displays put on by Sydney on New Years Eve.

The Southern Star is part of the official "Harbour of Lights Parade" - a flotilla of decked out vessels that sail the main causeway of Sydney Harbour during the fireworks display on New Year Eve, themselves becoming part of the festivities.

As with each previous New Year Eve, all vantage points around Sydney Harbour that offer anything of a view of the New Year Eve fireworks will be packed with revellers.

The Southern Star New Year Eve Harbour Cruise may be one of the best ways to ensure a spectacular view of the Sydney New Year Eve Fireworks.

Book your special place on Sydney Harbour and raise a glass with the one you love on the stroke of midnight as we usher in the New Year on Sydney Harbour.
