Sydney New Year’s Eve 2020 celebrations to be run by NSW Government

The City of Sydney has agreed to a NSW Government’s proposal that they take temporary custodianship of Sydney’s New Year’s Eve celebrations.

The City believes the State Government is best placed to manage the increased health, transport and crowd management challenges during the pandemic.

The State Government will take full responsibility for preparations and funding of the fireworks, crowd management, safety, traffic and transport.
