This year has been a crazy ride, but there are still lots of things worth celebrating. Whether you’re after a relaxed night out with the family or wanting to party into the early hours of 2022 (and kick 2021 to the curb), here is our pick of New Year’s EvE events on the Northern Beaches.

Harbord Diggers – Underwater Themed Party

Lunar New Year
Harbord Diggers

Farewell 2021 overlooking the water at entertainment hub Harbord Diggers with an underwater themed New Year’s Eve party. There will be roaming entertainment, live music, and DJs, plus multiple food options available across a range of cuisines.

Big kids aren’t the only ones who get to have fun. Major Fun is throwing the little ones their own party with face painting, dancing, games and more. Be sure to book in a spot at one of their restaurants so you don’t miss out!
