Sydney Showboats New Year’s Eve Fireworks Cruise

New Year’s Eve in Sydney is truly an experience unlike any other! The Midnight Fireworks draw hordes of people from all over the world and the perfect vantage point is on an entertaining Sydney Harbour dinner cruise. The Sydney Showboat New Year’s Eve Cruise is a spectacular experience encompassing captivating harbour views, delicious dinner and a world-class cabaret show!

Your all-inclusive Sydney Showboat New Year's Eve package includes 7hr of cruise time, a gourmet 5-course seated and served dinner and all beverages for the duration of the dinner cruise.

The Showboat New Year's Eve cruise has been sold out every year since 1999, and is the most popular dinner cruise due to its exceptional value.

Since 1987, Sydney Showboats has delivered an unforgettable experience to over 5 million guests. This luxury paddlewheeler is built to the highest standard, with a stylish interior of backlit marble, warm lighting, rich textured fabric and dramatic lines. The Showboat New Year's Eve cruise is aboard a fully air-conditioned stable vessel that offers unsurpassed comfort and luxury on Sydney Harbour. Sydney Showboats also has wrap-around balconies and a theatre-style layout to accentuate the cruising experience even further.
