LIGHT UP YOUR NIGHT

Fireworks

Fire up the fun with a spectacular fireworks display in Cockle Bay.
When
All year

Watch the Sydney sky above Darling Harbour come to life from anywhere along the harbour’s edge, including the many waterfront restaurants or bars along Cockle Bay Wharf, King Street Wharf and Barangaroo.

Whether you're a local Sydneysider or a tourist, what better way to end dinner or entertainment than with an incredible array of fireworks at one of Sydney’s most glorious waterfront locations? When it comes to fun things to do in Sydney, it really doesn’t get much better than that.

While we're hopeful that the Fireworks will light up the sky as planned, Mother Nature sometimes has a way of switching things up a bit! Keep an eye out for updates on Facebook and Instagram  to ensure you catch the best display possible!
