New Year’s Eve Picnic

Festivals and Celebrations

31 Dec 2022 to 1 Jan 2023 Once Only Event

Sydney’s New Year’s Eve has been established as one of the most astounding events of the year. The breathtaking fireworks display is renowned as one of the best in the world.

Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens invites you to welcome 2023 at the heart of the action. The Mare and Foal Lawn within Royal Botanic Garden is one of the best harbour-side vantage points with a spectacular view over the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

Our exclusive open-air picnic is perfect for groups of all ages, including families with children. This self-catered outdoor picnic is one of the few New Year’s Eve events where BYO alcohol is permitted. The picnic area is fully enclosed in a secure area where you will be able to stretch out and relax while enjoying your favourite snacks and a stunning view.

By welcoming 2023 with Foundation & Friends you are helping us to support our Botanic Gardens in advancing important science, plant conservation, education and world-class horticulture.
