Lane Cove – Get Ready for New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and it’s time to party party party. There are several places in Lane Cove and Longueville to see the fireworks.

Where to See the Fireworks on New  Year’s Eve

The best place to see the fireworks is in Longueville. However, it is highly recommended that you park in Lane Cove and walk to Longueville. If you drive, you will spend at least an hour trying to leave Longueville. Many families go to the 9 pm fireworks and then go home.

Any side street off Kenneth Street in Longueville facing the harbour is an ideal spot.  Other people like to see the fireworks from St Michael’s Church.

Usually, there is an open house at St Aiden’s in Longueville.  However, due to security concerns the event has been cancelled this year, you can read more about it here.

Manns Point Greenwich is also highly rated as a place to watch the NYE fireworks. You will need to enter Greenwich before the RMS road closures are in effect. These closures are to limit the number of vehicles entering the Greenwich Peninsula.  Road Closure details are set out in the box below.

Greenwich Road south of Bay Street and Chisholm Street south of Edwin Street will be closed from 5:30pm on Sunday 31 December and remain closed till 2am on Monday 1 January.

Closure conditions:

: residents and their visitors will be allowed to enter the road closures (with appropriate proof of address)

6pm onwards
: no access will be allowed into the road closures for anyone, including residents, with the exception of emergency services.

Vehicles will be permitted to exit the road closure 9:00 pm onwards after a safety assessment of all pedestrian and vehicle movements and other potential hazards has been conducted by on-site NSW Police officers. This assessment may result in longer wait periods. Vehicles will be allowed to enter the road closure after 2:00am.

Alcohol-Free Zones are again in place this New Year’s Eve in all Harbour and Lane Cove River foreshore parks and reserves. From 6:00 pm on Sunday 31 December 2017, consumption of alcohol is prohibited from Burns Bay Reserve to the Greenwich Peninsula and also at Kingsford Smith Oval. This applies until 9:00 am Monday 1 January 2018.

Hosting a Party on New Year’s Eve

If you are having a party at your house, we have some few tips on getting ready for the big night. Pop into Porter’s Liquor Northwood and speak to them about your drink requirements. They offer glasses, free delivery and you can return any of the alcohol you do not use (that has not been on ice and the labels are legible). They are so good at the party caper, that they can tell you how much each person will generally drink!!!!

If you need party food, try out one of our caterers listed in our Business Directory. Chargrill Charlies is a good option for chicken and salads.

Make sure you stock up on dips and chips asap – we have been caught out in the past on New Year’s Eve – the aisle at Woollies and Coles were very empty.

Want to make your party stylish – invite the team at Walkers Party Hire North Shore to help you out.  Check out this groovy glow in the dark furniture.  Perhaps you need a dance floor – no problems Walkers can help you.
