Celebrate

... an amazing Gay NYE party in Sydney @ the only LGBT+ New Year’s Eve party on Sydney Harbour.

  • Are you ready to welcome in the New Year with a BANG and be wined and dined all night long, enjoying the sounds of Sydney’s best DJ’s?
  • Are you looking for a safe and welcoming space, with rooftop views and a gorgeous friendly crowd?
Celebration NYE22/23 is your ticket!

Ascend to our cool gay oasis with unobstructed rooftop views of Sydney Harbour, taking in both the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, all with easy access from nearby train stations.

Since 2009, Celebration NYE has welcomed thousands of wonderful LGBT+ people to experience the Sydney New Year’s Eve fireworks.  People make new friends, and meet old ones, again and again.

It’s such a special night. People have proposed and we’ve even had a wedding!

And whilst this is an exclusive event, designed for the LGBT+ community, everyone is welcome: we always have someone’s mother with us! Maybe this year, it’s yours?

Party 2022/23

This year’s party is planned to be as fabulous and amazing as all our previous parties.  We all have a lot of steam to let off, don’t we?

Enjoy the same level of entertainment, access, staffing ratios, and food and beverage service as per previous years, ensuring you’ll have an amazing time and can welcome in the new year with BANG!

A fabulous addition for this year though will be the service of French Champagne on arrival, and we have tweaked the menu to focus more on delicious and substantial canapé service, supplemented by our amazing food station and grazing tables.


Come out, join us and kiss Twenty Twenty Two GOODBYE!

Event Entertainment

The view is not the only entertainment on the night! We have the best queer DJ's and performers for you!

Returning for his sixth fabulous time spinning at Celebration NYE is DJ Mark Alsop MA15+. With over 30 years experience behind the decks in Australia, Mark kicks off the night with smooth cocktail sounds that morph into groovier beats as the sun sets and the night gathers round us.

Joining Mark is another Sydney stalwart, DJ Rob Davis. This party will be Rob's first with us, but he is an incredibly experienced DJ, who has been spinning since 1983, in Australia and around the world.

Mark and Rob will combine for an amazing tête-à-tête set that will put a smile on your face!  Look out for a classic twist on our flashback sounds set!

Our DJ’s are but the tip of the iceberg, and they will be aided and abetted in their entertainment duties by the incomparable Frock Hudson (MEL) as our MC. In addition to belting out a few choice tunes during the evening,  Frock will also keep you up to date on the evening’s festivities and happenings on the harbour and the buffet! Just keep him away from the Mac and Cheese station!

"I want to say that my partner and I had a really great time at the NYE party. Everything was immaculately organised, we loved all the details. We also want to give a hostess by the name of Makayla extra credit for looking my partner who is a vegan; she looked after him well on the night..."

John, London, UK, 2019

"Being Black and visiting from the states I didn't know what to expect from the gay party scene in Australia. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the music and the pacing of the night, plus the crowd was so communal and welcoming and friendly. My partner and I felt comfortable and a part of the revelry all night. Thank you for that!"

American Guest, 2019
