New Year’s Eve is just around the corner, and fireworks are back on. There are several places in Lane Cove and Longueville to see the fireworks.
Before the Fireworks Plastic Soul will be playing in The Canopy from 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm.
Where to See the Fireworks on New Year’s Eve
Kenneth Street Longueville
The best place to see the fireworks is in Longueville.
This year the theme for the 9 pm fireworks is Calling Country which celebrate the local histories and contemporary experiences of Indigenous storytellers through art, song, sound, and dance. As a way of Calling Country, the selection of artists brings connections between the land, water and sky to reflect on the past, and grow stronger into the future.
The midnight fireworks display will mark the close of 2022 and celebrate the start of 2023. The complete program is here, and other information if you are looking to view the fireworks closer to the CBD.
Many families go to the 9 pm fireworks and then go home. Any side street off Kenneth Street in Longueville facing the harbour is ideal.
However, it is highly recommended that you park in Lane Cove and walk to Longueville. If you drive into Longueville, you will spend at least an hour after the fireworks trying to leave Longueville.

We have a 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 and free delivery, and you can return any 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!!!!
