Keen to ring in the New Year along the harbour foreshore but not with inevitable hordes of people? Easy — just take a short ferry ride to Cockatoo Island to completely surround yourself with water and cop some second-to-none views. This year, the island is throwing a party so you can celebrate without elbowing your way through the crowds.

It's got a plethora of live music, gourmet eats, films, games and guided tours lined up. And your NYE 2019 Experience ticket covers them all. The epic music program includes live tunes by Kate Wadey, Darryl Beaton, Evie J Willie and DJ Kate Monroe, who'll be bringing the dance-worthy beats as the clock ticks over to 2020. Meanwhile, if you're keen to start your year on a competitive note, you can get stuck into a spot of giant chess, table tennis, basketball or handball. Or catch a film on the big screen or plunge into 19th-century history on a tour — be it a journey through crooked characters or an exploration of escape attempts.

Keeping you well fuelled between adventures will be a selection of pop-up bars and food stalls. Whatever your beverage of choice — be it a cocktail, craft beer or glass of vino — you'll find it, alongside some top-notch food.

Better yet, you'll be staying the night, so you don't have to worry about getting home. Whether you book into a luxe waterfront camping spot that's already set up for you or pitch your own tent, you'll be spoilt by extraordinary panoramas of Sydney's firework displays.
