NYE accessible viewing area application

If you have accessibility requirements, you can apply for the designated accessible viewing area of the New Year's Eve fireworks at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

People with accessibility requirements are invited to enjoy the fireworks with their family from a managed, accessible viewing area.

The area offers views of Sydney Harbour and is a beautiful place to enjoy the event in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. This is a free viewing area located within the Foundation & Friends NYE Picnic event site, located on the waterside of the Garden.  

As spaces are limited, we conduct a ballot system for ticket allocations. To apply for tickets please enter your information below.  

  • Applications close Monday 4 December 2023.  
  • Successful applicants will be informed by email by Monday 11 December. 
  • To ensure we can accommodate as many guests as possible, there is a maximum of 4 people per booking.   


If you will need assistance to get across the Garden to the event, please book an accessible buggy transfer in advance.

Please share what your accessibility requirements are, so we can comfortably accommodate you at the event
