Where to see the New Year’s Eve Fireworks in Lane Cove

    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.

    The closest place to have dinner before seeing the fireworks in Longueville is at The Longueville Sporting Club (aka the Diddy).  The Bistro will be open between 12 and 9pm.  Bookings are essential on 9427 2210.  There will be a snag sizzle for the kids.

    Other people like to see the fireworks from St Michael’s Church.

    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.

    5.30PM 31 DECEMBER 2018 TO 2AM 1 JANUARY 2019

    • Greenwich Rd south of Bay Street
    • Chisholm Street south of Edwin Street


    Between 5:30pm and 6pm – Residents and their visitors will be allowed to enter the road closures (with appropriate proof of address)

    From 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 from 9pm 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 2am.

    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 2018, consumption of alcohol is prohibited from Burns Bay Reserve to the Greenwich Peninsula and also at Kingsford Smith Oval.
