New Year’s Eve 2020 will be a bit different and vantage points at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and Mrs Macquaries Point will be closed due to the recent announcement by the NSW Government.
The Botanic House restaurant managed by Trippas White Group will have a function, however none of the usual large NYE events hosted by the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney & Domain will be held this year.
The Garden will open as normal for visitors from 7.00 am to 3.00 pm on New Year’s Eve with entry and exit available via Morshead Gate only (located near the State Library of New South Wales).
For safety and security;
Mrs Macquaries Road will be closed at the Landbridge adjacent to the NSW Art Gallery at midnight on 30 December.
There will be no vehicle or pedestrian access to Mrs Macquarie’s point after midnight on 30 December.
Temporary fencing will be in place from 29 December 2020.
We will continue to update this page with more information as it becomes available. For more information on the NYE celebrations across the city, please visit the NSW Government's New Year's Eve page.
