Check-in Date

Southern Star - $550

Enjoy the recently refitted, two-level catamaran with its wrap-around decking for great views and atmosphere.

Be one of two hundred revelers to board this modern floating venue that gives you room to enjoy the breathing space that you would miss on the jam-packed foreshore, but that also provides heaps of atmosphere thanks to the DJ and light show as well as the cocktails and open bar. The friendly staff will look after your every need and canapés and finger food will circulate all night.

The wrap-around deck affords 360-degree views of the harbour, the brightly-lit cityscape, the other boats and ships that will join you in the Harbour of Lights Parade and of course allows for staggering views of the fireworks themselves.

The vessel may not be side on through the entirety of the fireworks display and may have to face the Harbour Bridge to ensure stability. Due to the height of the fireworks and the proximity to the display, passengers have very rarely found this to be prohibitive.
